Why we care

After the tsunami, we helped Ban Talae Nok with over 20 long-term projects including a community center and a new school. Over the last decade, we have also sponsored waste management, mangrove protection, scholarships, and Children Day celebrations.  By taking a Ranong tour you help in many ways. Firstly, by directly adding money to their local economy. Secondly, through money raised by the North Andaman Network foundation.
