education for the future
The mission of the Swiss HopeHouse Foundation "Sawatdi" in Thailand and Laos is to support young people so that they can and will go to school under decent circumstances and good conditions. Furthermore, we encourage and help them to continue their education through university training responding to the current requirements of the national labor market. The goal is to enable them to find a decent job, with prospects, and adequate remuneration. Support by HopeHouse is built on three pillars: Contribution to extracurricular costs, university scholarships, intensive English courses.
Welcome to HopeHouse “Sawatdi”
In 1992 already, the Swiss Claude Delachaux created the private association "Sawatdi" to support deprived families in the Northeast of Thailand. In 2006, this private initiative was transformed into the registered Swiss Foundation HopeHouse "Sawatdi” and since 2016, HopeHouse is also officially registered in Thailand and operates in ISAN, near Nongkhai. Guided by the same qualitative requirements, HopeHouse also supports students in southern Laos, close to Vientiane, as well as in the South near Pakse, the capital of the province of Champassak. In October 2016, the foundation celebrated its 10 years' Anniversary (Video).
