Welcome to METTA Charity’s website! We are very small non-profit that is currently providing badly needed medicine and education to Thailand’s Burmese migrant population. This website is an opportunity to show the world the impact you can have when you choose to do something good.
It is also an opportunity to ask the world to participate with us. If you can, we’d love for you to donate, and if you can’t donate please share our story on social media. If everyone with a big heart chips in we know that 2018 will be our most successful school year to date.
We operate three campuses in western Thailand’s Mae Sot District. The Burmese migrants in this area live in chronic poverty without basic medical care or schooling. In 2011 Johny Adhikari and a few friends pooled their money together to start a school for the children in Mae Sot. It began with 40 students, but now in 2017 we have over 400 students ages 4-15 years old who rely on us.
The Farmhouse School is our most developed campus with two buildings and a chicken coop. There are over 140 students learning 5 different subjects in Thai and Burmese.
Min Thu Wan also has 140 students.
How You Can Help
The easiest way you can help is by making a donation. Your contribution provides the basic supplies (food, water, shoes) and services (teachers, transportation, etc.) that it takes to run a successful school.
A special note about food. Our students live in chronic poverty, so the food they receive at school is vital nutrition. We provide a very modest school lunch to our students, and most of the time we barely have enough food everyone. A modest contribution from you could help us feed our students without having to worry.
