Changing lives, one at a time!

How can I help?

Thank you for visiting our website!

For more then 15 years the Thai Child Development Foundation has made a difference in the lives of children in need. TCDF makes sure that children with special needs in rural areas also have acces to medical care and education. 

TCDF is a grassroots organisation with headcourters and a forest school in the mountains of Paksong, Phato in Chumpon province, Thailand. All programs and activities at TCDF are sustainable and aimed towards self reliance. TCDF is able to support children in need thanks to the trust and support of many sponsors and visitors from all over the world. We hope to welcome you too some day soon!

what makes TCDF so awesome?

Our Kids, support as long as (but never longer then!)needed without taking the children out of their homes!

TCDF supports local children who fall outside the existing medical & educational system. We make sure that customized medical care and education is also available to underprivileged children and children with disabilities or learning disorders. These children are supported in the two project branches Medical Care & Education. Over the years we have trained local people step by step how to best support children on an individual  base without taking the children out of there homes. We are providing customized care for each child in close cooperation with their parents or other daily life care givers, teachers and local healthcare providers.  Our aim is to support the children in their development towards independance and strenght so they eventually don’t need us any more!

Do you have a volunteer spirit?

At TCDF we work local but we think global! The care for the children in need has only been possible thanks to the support of people from all over the world who have shared one skill or the other! Supporting TCDF from their homes or hands on at our forest school & ecological farm! We are always looking for volunteers who want to make a difference; join us now!

At TCDF only local people who stay long term and speak the same language should work with the children in the social support programs. However international volunteers can make all the difference too!

Volunteer online : volunteering right from your own home/ office by sharing a skill such as marketing, translations, accounting, grafic design, writing…..what ever special skill you have. We value your time so please email us to discuss the most urgent needs, our best match and your customized action plan within your own available time!

Voluntourism: Hands on helping the team on the farm and property of the forest school Paksong. Please note that volunteers do not work with special need children. Also we cannot use donations to pay for volunteer food and board so volunteers are asked to cover this themselves while staying in Paksong.
