Pornpen “Noi Noi” Khongkachonkiet, Director, Cross-Cultural Foundation, Bangkok and more art by Luke Duggleby

Pornpen “Noi Noi” Khongkachonkiet, Director, Cross-Cultural Foundation, Bangkok , 2020

As the leader of one of the Thailand's foremost civil society groups, the Cross-Cultural Foundation, Pornpen “Noi Noi” Khongkachonkiet tirelessly and creatively advocates for human rights and torture prevention across the country. “It’s my job, my duty to discover the truth. Once I find the facts out, I have to help,” is how she explains her philosophy and motivation for her work. From an early age, Noi Noi’s encounters with marginalized communities like ethnic Karens during her schooldays, led her to examine the “structural problems” underlying her country’s more pervasive ills. At the Foundation, she works directly with torture victims and their families, and these encounters--and the long-lasting friendships she forges give her strength to continue doing this work.
