We Touch the Ground  

Neighboring districts of Mae Chan are (from the north clockwise) Mae Sai, Chiang Saen, Doi Luang, Mueang Chiang Rai and Mae Fa Luang of Chiang Rai Province.

Doi Nang Non, the "Mountain of the Sleeping Lady", is part of the Daen Lao Range and is one of the main geographic features of Mae Chan District.


Tourism

Doi Nang Non (ดอยนางนอน), "sleeping woman mountain", is an unusual land feature located in Mae Chan district on the western side of the highway between Chiang Rai and Mae Sai. The silhouette of the mountain range takes the shape of a reclining woman with long hair when seen from certain angles. There is a viewpoint at Mae Chan from where the "Sleeping Lady" can be observed best in good weather.

There are a number of caves and water courses in these karstic hills. Tum Luang and Khun Naam Nang Non, have been developed as a tourist attraction.


                                          Pracharatpattana School

The school is based in Mae Chan that provides free education to the community. However, they lack various educational resources which means that through our program, not only the staff is empowered but also the children. Children who attend the school come from impoverished background i.e. stateless and victims of child labour.
One of the biggest problems within the community is that the children have limited career opportunities and there is no vocational training provided (due to the lack of resources).
Hence, our program can help broaden the horizons of their future career as well as giving them the option for considering higher education.


                    

                                       The Sports Programme


The children display immense passion for Football (both boys and girls) and Volley ball IF they want to be in the team, they have to perform at a certain level in their studies! With the kind help and support by Chiang Rai Football Association, we can provide children with sport activities they enjoy the most and help them progress further in education and fitness.  


                                         Working with the Elder Community



Jimmy’s Roots Thailand not only focuses upon education and empowerment but also abandoned individuals. In the remote area of Mae Chan a huge number of elders who are abused, isolated and given no care.

We have identified a few cases whereby old women are in need of care and attention. If you are interested in making an old lady smile and bring her out of her misery then kindly contact us.
