Our mission is to share hope with Karen refugees and internally displaced people on the Thai-Burma border who have experienced conflict, oppression, poverty and disadvantage.
In 2010, Sharing Hope began with 3 projects. Since then, we’ve completed:
Border Basics projects
Helping with the basics of life such as food, medicine and education
Border Rebuild projects
Assisting communities to rebuild facilities such as schools and medical clinics
Leaders of Hope projects
Sponsoring Karen refugee students to obtain poverty-alleviating degrees
Emergency Relief projects
Timely aid for communities displaced by internal conflict or natural disaster
The Karen people are an ethnic group that settled along the Thai-Burma border approximately 1,500 years ago. Like many other ethnic groups in Burma, the Karen people face ongoing hostility from the Burmese military, the Tatmadaw. For over 70 years the Karen have defended their homeland, their families and their culture.
