Asia Art Tour is collaborating with Courageous Kitchen Bangkok to create travel that takes people into the marginalized communities of Thailand to learn about food, culture, mutual aid and building networks of care between visitors to Thailand and those living there.
From Courageous Kitchen:
Courageous Kitchen began in 2009 as a small Bangkok based initiative called In Search of Sanuk which aimed to provide emergency food and housing for children and families most in need. The word ‘sanuk’ is the Thai word meaning fun/enjoyment. We chose that name because we believe every child, regardless of their situation, has the right to have a happy and healthy childhood. We believe fun and learning should come first and that all children should be free from worry and the burdens of poverty and suffering.
We still believe fun and learning come first and use the kitchen as a space to create a fun environment where children can learn the life skills needed to be leaders in their communities.
