Welcome to the Banian Tree
The Banian Tree is the place where we keep the story of our work in Vietnam. Since 1999 – and even before, our projects provide computer education for the blind.
Disability is not just a medical issue. It is not just a social issue.
It is a human rights issue.
In 2012 we have decided to support also the Chonlada life-skills Project, an innovative computer-based life skills project in Chiang Mai (Northern Thailand) to develop cognitive, motor and social skills in children affected by Down syndrome, autism and other disadvantaging conditions.
The project is operated by the Dulabhatorn Foundation of Chiang Mai. In addition to computer practice, it includes Montessori method sessions, physical and social activities.
Amedeo – co-founder of Sao Mai Education Fund – who lives in Chiang Mai formulated and started the project in 2011 and acts as Education & Technology Adviser.
