Napo village is located six hours north of Thailand in Isarn Province. The Napo Village Project was founded by Khun Pira Sudham, a social and political reformer. His aim – to build a school for poor village children in an effort to stop the flow of the young to Bangkok in pursuit of financial support. These young people often then find themselves in the trap of prostitution. He sponsors students to attend the school.
