Our Journey, Our Story

Our Journey, Our Story

Transforming Lives in Rural Thailand
The Thai Child Development Foundation (TCDF) is a beacon of hope for underprivileged children in rural Thailand, particularly those from underserved families. Founded in 2004 by a philanthropic Thai/Dutch family, TCDF has been unwavering in its commitment to offer tailored medical care and education, enriching lives every single day in Thailand.

Local Leadership, Global Vision
TCDF's women-led local Thai teams, driven by community-focused values, work alongside daily life caregivers to keep children in their homes and villages. Our mission transcends traditional aid, aiming for sustainable change and improved life quality without taking the children out of their homes. Our grassroots community-led efforts, bolstered by global backers, closely collaborate with local schools, healthcare hubs, and village leaders.

Our Primary Commitments

At TCDF, we strongly emphasize three transformative pillars:  educationhealthcare, and sustainability. Through equal acces to education, medical healthcare, aid and sustainable community based-initiatives, we enable empowerment, growth and well-being.



At the core of our foundation lies a commitment to education. Through carefully developed curriculum and programs, we uplift each student, blending traditional academics with personal development.



Every child deserves a fair chance for change. That's why we're passionately dedicated to ensuring the complete holistic health and well-being of underprivileged children in the heart of Thailand.
