Where does the money go?

Our focus at our festivals or events is not to make money, but to cover any costs that are not donated by venues or supporters, and in turn to support specific projects relating to education or children where we can.

Our events are run by unpaid volunteers, and supported by the local community in the form of time, services, food, support, venues and more. Some costs are unavoidable - and we do pay our musicians - but we work towards simple, sustainable and low cost solutions.

Since 2015, our events have largely been the Samui Green Market, held every approximately 6 weeks.

NEWS: In 2018, our focus has been on supporting migrant education via the Burmese Learning Centre in Kuraburi. We have held book sales at the Samui Green Market, collected donations and bought books for the school library. By giving children a basic education we help to break the cycle of poverty for these families.

You can donate second hand children's books in good condition to BLC - please email for drop-off points and we will post to them.

In December 2017, we donated B33,480 ($1000) on behalf of the Samui community who supported our Xmas 2017 fundraiser for Rohingya refugees. The lion's share of B20,000 came from the International School of Samui. The remainder was from donations from vendors (some who gave their entire take!) and from individual donors. Thanks also to Lamphu shop, Sweet Sisters, Fisherman Pants for donating prizes.

The money went to BRAC, ranked the No. 1 nongovernmental organization in the world - who are on the ground right now in Cox Bazaar.

So much generosity - at the same market we also collected some money to support Phil (of Samui Snake Rescue) the snake protector of Samui.

Samui Mala supported Spark! - a social circus group. We met its founder Andrea, pictured below, who was the 'spinzter' (or fire dancer), at our first Mala event in 2007. They are still going strong and you can find them on Facebook here.

This beautiful initiative is an international volunteer circus organization that teaches playshops, performs spectacular fire shows, and donates toys, tools and art supplies  to disadvantaged children along the Northern Thai -Burmese border. For children who have nothing: no papers, no formal identity, often no parents, these volunteers bring joy, laughter and inspiration through play...
