Founded in 2002, Baan Dek Foundation provides Children's Access to Essential Services in Education, Health and Safety within Thailand.
We estimate that 60,000 children live in Thailand in vulnerable environments (including: construction site camps and urban slums), and follow their parents working in construction from one site to another. At times, these children are victims of physical and mental abuse as well as neglect. They are at risk of being abandoned and are therefore in critical need of support in order to access proper education, healthcare and safety services.
In the last few years, Baan Dek Foundation has developed its programs to focus on these children exposed to the deprivation of their rights and access to basic services on a daily basis.
For 15 years we have conducted outreach sessions, access to essential services and individual tailored support through our social advisors on a daily basis to support these children in need.
Baan Dek Foundation works with all children regardless of their ethnicity, religion, and social background in accordance with UNICEF policies in terms of Child Protection.
Who we are
Baan Dek Foundation is a Thai-registered Foundation, providing vulnerable children with access to essential services. We work in partnership with local entities to ensure that we reach families most in need, focusing on: marginalized families and communities living in construction site camps and urban slums. Baan Dek Foundation works primarily with communities of migrant construction workers around the Chiang Mai area in Thailand.
Baan Dek Foundation is a leader in terms of collaboration with the private sector (CSR), particularly with construction companies and International corporations, and through our joint research project with UNICEF on the future of the Thai construction sector.
All programs follow Baan Dek's Child Protection Policy, which places importance on the holistic support and urgent protection of vulnerable children at the core of all of our activities.
Baan Dek Foundation is supported by the Kids Home Development Network: a worldwide network of partners that facilitate fundraising and advocacy. Together they ensure the continued development of Baan Dek's programs in Thailand
