Thanks to people who donate we can continue to serve hundreds of children in need in rural communities all over Thailand.
Our children all have different needs and there are just as many ways to make a difference. On the page SPONSORS you can read more about different ways to give and the benefits that come with different sponsor programs. Scroll down for our wishlist, information on how to donate directly to our bankaccount and more information about our financial systems and reporting.
Donating goods in person
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 and want to bring things for the children please email us to ask 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 together decide which dream you want your donation to make come true!

TCDF big wishlist -for investors and bigger sustainable sponsors
Sustainable Sponsoring of our organic farm
Help rebrand and market our organic coffee and tea, creating win win business 2 business ventures for our farm produce and the products made by young adults with special needs. Also sponsors are much needed for our farm and tree nursery: pots, compost, animal food. All this to increase local sustainability at our Forest school academy and circular economy learning center en reduce the dangerous dependance on ongoing donations.
Provide a four year full university scholarship for students from underserved families in Thailand who have the skillsets but only lack the funds to continue to higher education. Scholarships change lives, one at a time! The cost vary per student, per course, per university but all include (public) school term fee’s, books, dormitory, schoolmeals, schoolbus, and uniforms.
Big givers donate $10 000 up to a project that best alligns with their mission of change making. TCDF has a big investment wishlist that is aimed on local sustainability and future financial independance on donations by increasing our incomes through our ecotourism project.
All donations to TCDF directly benefit the children we serve.

Friends support TCDF on a monthly base with a financial contribution, big or small. Any amount helps as it is a donation that our Thai team can surely count on in the planning and dividing of the medical and educational support of the children in need.
