Allan Brown

Allan¬†founded Compasio in 2006 to facilitate a vision of loving, protecting and empowering some of the world’s most vulnerable people. Allan’s official title is Executive Director of Compasio Canada but currently lives and works from Thailand and still wears many hats. His vision is to see Compasio doing what it does in a very thought out and effective way and has a particular passion for Compasio’s values of helping families in crisis stay together and empowering Burmese nationals to lead the charge.


Allan hails from a small community in the middle of pretty much nowhere along the Ontario-Quebec border in Canada. He is married to Joane who hails from the other (French) side of that same border and their pack of kids born in three different countries haven’t a clue where they are really “from”.
