About Us

 
 

OUR MISSION IS TO PROMOTE ENVIRONMENTAL, SOCIAL, AND ECONOMIC SUSTAINABILITY AND APPRECIATION FOR NATURE IN COMMUNITIES AROUND THE WORLD.

 
   

Comprised of a small team of like minded individuals who saw a need for inter-disciplinary research, community awareness programs, and social mobilization, Sustainable Smiles has been implementing action oriented projects and research based programs in local communities and schools in Southern Thailand.  More recently, we have expanded our programs to Cambodia for community based ecotourism development project and Austria for youth education programs.  Our project funding has come from small grants and individual donations and most importantly through the in kind help and services of many international and local volunteers including teams of master and doctoral students from the Asian Institute of Technology, Bangkok.   

 

Vision
We seek to facilitate the development of sustainable communities through participatory and educational approaches by integrating stakeholders and resources to achieve a balanced and prosperous Planet.

Objectives:

  • Teach students environmental education and career skills through hands-on activities where students will discover concepts on their own and bring community members together to promote sustainable practices and change in their local community.
  • Provide capacity building to all the concerned stakeholders through trainings, workshops, seminars, awareness raising programs and orientation for natural resources protection and livelihood enchancement.

 

  • Empower stakeholders and mobilize communities to preserve and manage their natural resources through participatory based approaches.

 

We received our 501(c) tax exemption status, any donations you make are now tax deductible. We value any small contribution you can make and you can be assured that 100% of your donation will go directly towards our programs. Thank You.
