EcoThailand (นิเวศวิถี) is a not for profit NGO, with Thai registered Charitable Foundation Status, based in Surat Thani province Thailand. We have a strong Environmental and Community focus and are active on Koh Phangan, Koh Samui, nearby islands, and the provincial mainland.
Caring for our Environment
We endeavor to promote environmental sustainability, education, awareness, guardianship and direct action among children, youth, local adult groups and businesses in the Thai Gulf through the promotion and facilitation of co-working, co-ordination and networking, between ourselves and partners, to achieve locally agreed goals for the benefit of the local environment and all of its diverse communities.
Supporting education within schools and communities
We believe in the power of change and that the best gift we can give to future generations, the most valuable legacy we can leave behind us, is to help empower students to be leaders and guardians for sustainability and positive change, by enhancing local education …. Engaging the youth of today to protect the planet of tomorrow .
Bringing communities together and supporting great ideas
Community foundations come in all shapes and sizes, but what we all have in a common is a commitment to making a difference to people’s lives and the places they live.
We strive to be local champions, connecting people and organisations that want to improve their communities. We invest in local people and organisations tackling the issues facing communities today and supporting some of society’s most disadvantaged people.
Inspiring local philanthropy
Community foundations provide help and advice to those who want to give at the heart of their communities, both now and in the long-term. We facilitate and help match donors and partners to important local causes, we can act as Fiscal Agent for non-registered organizations, and as both grantee, receiving Donations and grants, and as grantor via our MicroGrants program.
