The Home of Joy

A celebration of childhood

In the lakeside village of Sangkhla Buri, somewhere in Thai land among jungle, rivers and mountains, there is sadness behind the beauty. This area is home to refugees who fled war, forced labor and poverty right across the Burmese border.​

Baan Unrak is an NGO whose mission is to protect, raise and support children who suffered severe traumas and abuses. In the Home of Joy children can thrive, growing up together in a sharing environment, learning the universal values of love and care for all beings. ​

Now, the children play freely in harmony with nature, living wild adventures in the wonderful surroundings. At Baan Unrak, they cultivate kindness and gratefulness, perform daily duties at the Home, and through yoga, find inner peace and serenity.​
