We are dedicated to supporting communities in need around the globe.
Echo Nation was founded in 2012 by a group of young friends from Melbourne, who’s travels through South East Asia bought them to the Sangkhlaburi District in North West Thailand. There they discovered a vast population of displaced people from nearby Burma, with little or no rights in Thailand and no support services.
Despite widespread poverty, lack of child education, social and political issues, the people were caring and possessed such a generosity of spirt that these young Australians were inspired to want to give something back.
The organisation has since grown into a registered Australian charity, hosting regular fundraising events and appeals. Run entirely by volunteers, the team at Echo Nation are now directly funding efforts to assist individuals and communities all over the world.
