We care for children in Chiang Rai
We are a Japanese NGO based in Chiang Rai, Thailand
Sakura Project is a Japanese NGO based in Chiang Rai, Thailand. It was established in 1991 by Miwa Takashi, a Japanese photographer and a writer.
Our mission is to give an education opportunity to children in Chiang Rai, who mostly do not have an access to education due to poverty and other factors. Our target children are ethnic minority who lives in around Northern part of Thailand.
