Pimali Association (CH) and Pimali Foundation (TH) are dedicated to fight exploitation of disadvantaged youths and to contribute to the reduction of poverty in the north-east of Thailand.

The Founders

The initiative was triggered by Stéphanie Des Arts-Loup’s experience during a stay in an orphanage in North-East Thailand.

She realized the difficulties encountered by disadvantaged youths to find a decent job after finishing their compulsory education. With this in mind, she decided to launch Pimali.
