In 2001 Gaweechat began helping orphans to use computers and designed the organisation's first website. Since then OMP has supported some 60 schools, orphanages, national parks and villages in Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Nepal. Openmind Projects acts as a private aid organization, bringing essential knowledge about computers, English and conservation to developing countries in the Mid Asiatic Region. (en)
