Suriporn Wachanasirikun was born into a Lahu hill tribe family of 10, in the village of Tha Ko of Northern Thailand. Her parents, refugees from the violence of Myanmar, settled in Northern Thailand in hopes of a better life which remained to be seen. Suriporn persevered in her studies, advancing on to higher education with the help of a scholarship. Suriporn’s gratitude created a desire to pay it forward one day to help others within her Lahu community like herself.
Suri’s Kids project was a culmination of one young girl’s dream to pay it forward and empower her own community.
Pay if forward with Suri's Kids!
