How can I help?

Welcome and thank you for visiting our site!

For more than 15 years the Thai Child Development Foundation (TCDF) has been making a difference in the lives of underprivileged children. By making sure that customized medical care & education is also available to children with disabilities, learning disorders or social challenges. TCDF works on a local level and is based in the mountain community Paksong, Phato, Chumporn province in Thailand. At TCDF we are always developing towards strength and independence: for the children but also for the foundation as an organization. We can only make a difference in the lives of children in need thanks to the trust and support of many.

what makes TCDF different then many other foundations.

Our Kids

TCDF supports all 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 over the last 15 years has only been possible thanks to the support in endless many ways by 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!

At TCDF we believe that only local people who stay long term should work with the children in the social support programs. But international and Thai people who want to help 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. 

You can also support charity with a one of a kind holiday at our one million star riverside jungle retreat!
