Why help us help?
Your help- invested time or money, little or a lot– can help long after it was given. But only if your investment is made in a sustainable way and through a trustworthy partner on the ground like TCDF.
TCDF has been changing the lives of hundreds of children in a sustainable way for almost 20 years: it works!
Donations are used for the children in our programs and not used for overhead costs such as offices in the city or food and board of international volunteers.
TCDF runs a organic farm & visitor center & fair trade shop to increase our local sustainability in both food and finance and empower our youth.
In compliance to our child safety policy only our long term team members work directly with the children
TCDF does not accept discrimination. We welcome people of all nationalities, religion, sexes and ages.
Finances are detailed, checked by our 4 person eyes daily admin system and fully open to the public. Checked by and independent accountant agency in both Thailand and the Netherlands.

Special Program Joint-Ventures- choose a program close to your heart! Creating win win partnerships.
If you have a personal special interest such as education, food, yoga, music, sport, the environment or girls empowerment…. there is a good chance TCDF runs a program for that at our academy!

FOOD- a restaurant might sponsor our nutrition program by buying our organic coffee and tea’s and rebranding it.

TRANSPORT- a logistics company might pay for the gasoline of the schoolbusses and add their logo on it!
