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.
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.
