Thank you for visiting the website of the Thai Child Development Foundation (TCDF).
The Thai Child Development Foundation is a Thai/Dutch initiative set up in 2004.TCDF supports underpriviledged 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 available locally while thinking globally.
At TCDF local Thai staff only work with support underprivileged children individually through various programs,without taking them out of their homes.
The Medical Care and Educational Project support
children in their development towards a greater independence and quality of life.
While only our small team of Thai professionals support underprivileged children individually through various social programs,
international volunteers are arriving all year round to offer the much needed support to the farm and occupational training center. They do the hard physical labor of maintenance and on Saturdays reach out to local youth, with the aim to increase understanding, awareness and personal development.
Al the projects are in cooperation with parents, all local schools, healthcare centers, villagers and authorities.
TCDF has no religious or political aspects.
We aim to increase sustainability and independence of TCDF through projects by ambassadors, volunteers and friends of the foundation, local as well as international.
Please read and see more on this web site about the work of TCDF and how you might contribute by choosing our Eco-tourism projects as your holiday destination, becoming a volunteer in Thailand or ambassador of TCDF at home.
Thank you for your interest,
Founder Thai Child Development Foundation
