Welcome to the website of TCDF
Welcome to the website of the Thai Child Development Foundation (TCDF).
The Thai Child Development Foundation is a Thai/Dutch initiative set up in 2004 by Rose Tieges.
The Thai Child Development Foundation (TCDF) supports children in their development and is active in the mountains of Phato, Chumpon province, Thailand.

The most important aspects about TCDF are: small scale, customized support, personal attention and recapitalizing what is there already.
In the Social projects Thai professionals support underprivileged children individually through various programs, preferably in their own homes.
What do we offer to support children in their development:
- School for handicapped children
- Support for children with learning disabilities
- Educational activity clubhouse for all local children
- Educational program for Thai young adults
- Working skill trainings
- An outreach program
- Scholarships for underprivileged children
- Nutritional program for underprivileged children

- Workshops and seminars for adults aimed to reach children
Thai professionals support underprivileged children individually through various social programs, preferably in their own homes.
