Interview with Annelie Hendriks, founder of Samsara Foundation

Annelie Hendriks is a Dutch national who has lived for 20 years in Doi Saket, Chiangmai. She studied Cultural Studies and International Relations and started her career making exhibitions for museums. Later she was the director of an institute in cross cultural training, working for international NGO’s and companies. When she moved to Thailand 20 years ago she opened the Samsara Foundation, which had the aim of getting all children to school in Mae Hong Son Province. The foundation focused on building facilities to support schools, such as dormitories, canteens, toilet buildings, kitchens, clean water installations and solar panel electricity projects. This infrastructure had a great impact, as many children in that province didn’t go to school due to the lack of boarding facilities. The organisation closed in 2016, having achieved its ambition of getting kids to school, and now Annelie is turning her attention towards creative storytelling using mixed media.

Aom from Studio 88 had a chat to Annelie about her work and life in Doi Saket. Read more
