GIVING FREE EDUCATION
TO THOUSANDS OF GIRLS IN NEED

Breaking the cycle of poverty
begins with educating
disadvantaged girls who
lack opportunity


DHAMMAJARINEE WITTHAYA SCHOOL
 

Dhammajarinee Witthaya School (DWS) is the first and only free boarding school for girls in Thailand, administered by Buddhist nuns. 

 

 

For more than two decades, DWS has provided disadvantaged girls in Thailand, free of charge:

  • a safe place to live, meals, and medical care

  • quality, award-winning education grades K-12 and life-skills training 

  • stress management programs, meditation, and culturing in traditional values


Without this opportunity, the problems associated with poverty would only continue when these girls grow up and have children of their own.

MISSION
 

When You Give to Dhammajarinee Witthaya School

You change lives. Orphaned or disadvantaged Thai boys have always had the option to study at Buddhist monasteries. DWS was the first school to provide a similar opportunity for Thai girls.
You provide safety. Poverty and lack of education have often led disadvantaged Thai girls to dangerous and degrading occupations. Education improves their future opportunities.
You do more. Having met our goal to double the amount of classroom and dormitory space at Dhammajarinee Witthaya School, we are continuously upgrading our support capabilities and expanding the facilities for laundry, dining, meditation, and more.
