The Cyntax Foundation was founded in 2007 after a year spent in Southern Thailand following the December 26, 2004 tsunami. Its founder lived in Khao Lak and Phuket Island in Southern Thailand and worked with a number of humanitarian agencies, families and individuals as part of the world's efforts to help that region heal from its tremendous loss.

The Cyntax Foundation is a philanthropic organization established to commit its resources to activities intended to aid in the empowerment of at-risk indigenous groups of women and children in Southeast Asia. Initially projects will be undertaken in Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, and Myanmar - with eventual expansion of programming into the Indian subcontinent. This work will be accomplished through initiatives such as micro-lending, SME (small to medium enterprises) technical assistance, and capacity building through education and training.

Cyntax Foundation is also constantly looking at how new and innovative technologies can benefit remote communities in areas such as drinking water purification, small-scale power generation, agricultural productivity, and communications.
