3-TIER PAYMENT SCHEME

our policy


Awakening Leadership Training is a not-for profit program, part of a charitable organization Sathirakoses-Nagapradjpa Foundation (SNF) under the patronage of the Dalai Lama of Tibet. Whenever possible, we aim to work with and support local community-led, environmentally and socially responsible businesses and initiatives. We also believe in fair compensation for services we use and provide as part of our activities.

Our organization has a history of working with specific marginalized target groups in Laos, Burma, and Cambodia, involving a range of activities and strategies to empower communities and wider civil society. They have grown out of an approach of building capacities of grassroots leaders, including community and religious leaders, and are now expanding into wider civil society empowerment. 

In an effort to accommodate participants from different social and economic backgrounds, we have developed a three-tier rate scheme to help high quality participants attend our courses. 

We invite you to consider your own ability to pay and support our work by choosing the
