Thanks to donations we have made the difference in the lives of hundreds of children in need, for more then a decade!
We have been blessed by the support of sponsors most of whom have been here and seen with their own eyes what a big difference a donation, even a small one can make. Most visitors want to donate something practical, visible, such as the wheelchairs, physio material or milk and medicine…And over the years we were able to gather the materials we need to run efficiently and most importantly in a safe manner. We are now blessed to have our own school bus , physio material and occupational training work stations! At this point in time we are asking for donations to make sure we can continue supporting our children in need.
Our children all have different needs and there are just as many ways to make a difference! Please scroll down to read about difference ways to make a difference and the benefits and gifts that come with this.
At TCDF all individual donations will be used 100% for the projects and the children within these projects. And never used for overhead costs such as a downtown office, or big P.R. events. Our financial books are completely open to the public and detailed to the cents! Scroll down to read more about our financial systems and download our yearly plans, budgets and reports.
A donation of goods can make a real difference. As long as it can be used in a sustainable way or helps where the urgency is highest that specific time. At TCDF we don’t take things for granted and we value and appreciate your support. If you plan on visiting us and you want to bring things for the children please email us to ak what is needed most at that specific time. If you cannot come bring your donation in person please consider that often the costs of sending goods is higher then the price to buy the product locally and you may consider making a financial donation instead. You can contact us to help deside which dream you want your donation to make come true!

TCDF wishlist for sustainable support
Friends of TCDF make a small monthly donation that we can really count on with planning the medical care and educational support for the individual children in need.
TCDF is looking for joint ventures and CSR sponsors who would like to invest in one of the circular economy programs at our forest school.
A long term sponsorship of 1000-2000 euro per child in need per year changes lives! One at a time.

Please do consider becoming a Friend of TCDF!
In a world where war and natural disasters ruins the lives of so many it is difficult for a small foundation as TCDF to do fundraising for kids who might have a disability and be in need, but they are not dying from hunger and they are not being forced out of their homes. There are other children who need donations way more than ours…And yet, how can we tell our children that they cannot go to school anymore because there is no sponsor, or that their medicines are being taken away because of lack of funding? We cannot, and that is why we are asking people to become Friends of TCDF.
Friends support TCDF on a long term, monthly base with a financial contribution. Our kids and our Thai team can surely count on in the planning and dividing of the medical and educational support of the children in need.
For people with a Dutch bankaccount you can make and automatic monthly tranfer for an amount you choose. You can also download the direct debit form here. or for questions send an email to the secretary in the Netherlands, Maria Tieges (firstname.lastname@example.org).
For our non Dutch friends, the costs for international bank transfer can be high and not worth it for smaller donations. We ask you to donate your Friend contribution yearly or use PayPal for monthly payments!
