Welcome to

Australian Karen Foundation!

The aim of the Australian Karen Foundation is to educate and train Karen refugees.  Our focus of empowerment is the Karen people (of Burma) living in refugee camps on the Thai Burma border and the resettled Karen community in Australia.  Projects have evolved from grass-roots involvement with Karen communities to advance key education and training targets for young people.

AKF has a creative approach to organisation combining the efforts of Australians with the Karen living in this country, working together with the focus on education:

  • to improve the lives of their people who struggle to survive as refugees
  • to develop the capacity of Karen young people in Australia
