Welcome to the BFWA family!

Borderless Friendship WA Inc (BFWA) is a not-for-profit Western Australian organisation that enhances the lives of hill tribe children in Northern Thailand. The hill tribe people live in remote areas scattered across Northern Thailand with little or no access to education. This lack of education makes the hill tribe children prone to poverty and vulnerable to exploitation within Thailand's ubiquitous sex and drug trade. Those who can get an education grow up able to take much better care of themselves, their families and their community (Source: UN). We support more than 400 "at risk" children, most of these children have no parents or family to support them.

YOUR donations help.....

100% of your donations goes STRAIGHT to the child(ren) you sponsor and over 97% of ALL profits from fundraising goes directly to supporting our work in Thailand.


BFWA receives no government funding. We completely rely on raising funds by selling handicrafts (made by hill tribe people), running street stalls at various markets, organising fundraising events, grants and YOUR donations. Every cent is valuable and carefully put to best use.


  • Education - scholarships for secondary school and university, Mooditj* workshops

  • Safe accommodation (so children can continue at school), nutritious food, medical care and essential clothing.

* We work with hill tribe people to deliver the award-winning Mooditj program. The content includes: self-identity; puberty and caring for your body; understanding emotions; enhancing relationships; sexual issues such as STIs; sexual rights and protective behaviours; parenting; and identifying goals and dreams.

Funding also provides sustainable agriculture, livestock for the hostels, fish ponds for aquaculture, resources in schools and water tanks to irrigate crops.
