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. 

DWS

 

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, progressive K-12 education and vocational 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.

Changes lives. Orphaned or otherwise disadvantaged Thai boys have traditionally had the option to study at Buddhist monasteries. DWS was the first school to provide a similar opportunity for Thai girls.
Provides safety. Poverty and lack of education have often led disadvantaged Thai girls to dangerous and degrading occupations. Education improves their future opportunities.
Impacts Society. Educating girls has a ripple effect—uplifting families and communities. Please see more on our Impact Page.
