To provide educational and humanitarian support to Karenni refugees on the Thai/Burma border

KSDP was founded by Stephanie Lee in 1999 to provide educational support to young Karenni trapped inside refugee camps on the Thai/Burma border. Stephanie was killed in a road accident there in 2001 and her charity, now run by her family, continues to grow. KSDP now fund 4 schools and 4 orphanages and provide much needed humanitarian support to the Karenni people who are fleeing gross human rights oppression within Burma
