Yaowawit is a very special place. Set-up after the Tsunami, it is from its origin a school/orphanage for kids with sad family stories. Meanwhile own agricultural activities, a lodge and a restaurant help to earn money in order to support this project. So you have the great opportunity to spend days in beautiful nature, relax at a spacious pool, and if you like, get to know 100 happy and very energetic kids, who make you smile the moment you meet them. We support one of children financially, so we have our "special friend" our "godchild" at Yaowawit. That's another strong point about Yaowawit in case you are interested in supporting a Charity Organisation and want to make sure the money directly reaches the target audience. Until now, we went twice to Yaowawit. For my 7year old daugther it is a tremamdous learning opportunity, and very joyful (same is true for me as mother). It helps to change perspectives, reflect on real values in life - I personally feel especially for us as European Expats in Asia a very rewarding experience!
