iCare Thailand Foundation, founded by Danish-Norwegian visionaries, unveils its latest endeavour in the northern Thai countryside.

Led by Michael and Karin Andreassen, the iCare Thailand Foundation sets out on a poignant mission to uplift remote communities, one dormitory at a time.

Arriving at Huay Pu Kaeng Village, nestled along the Myanmar border, the team’s dedication radiates amidst the sweltering Thai jungle. With a humble ceremony, the 19th dormitory springs to life, a beacon of hope for children yearning for education.

Graced by traditional Kayan dancers, the celebration ignites the spirits of villagers and delegates alike. Michael Andreassen’s impassioned speech echoes a resounding message of perseverance and opportunity, resonating deeply with the young audience.
