Child’s Dream Foundation

Child’s Dream is a charitable organisation dedicated to unconditional help for underprivileged children in the Mekong Sub-region (Myanmar, Cambodia, Laos and Thailand). Our estimated 700 projects so far focus on remote and neglected areas in the region, with a mission to sustainably empower marginalised communities to shape their own futures. We prioritise the 3rd, 4th and 10th Sustainable Development Goals: good health and well-being, quality education and reduced inequalities respectively, and we address these issues via our focus groups- ‘Basic Education’, ‘Higher Education’, ‘Health’ and ‘Social Entrepreneurship Grant’.

Our offices in Chiang Mai (Thailand), Siem Reap (Cambodia) and Yangon (Myanmar) serve as bases for our humanitarian and community development activities. Our 40+ staff members are dedicated to working in the most efficient and effective way to achieve our mission.

Khon Thai Foundation



We are a social purpose organisation for collaborative sustainable development in Thailand. We believe active engagement from the public and multiple organisations is the key in achieving sustainable development and solving structural problems. We create platforms to empower active citizens to work with each other and to join issue-based intermediary organisations to mobilize for change. We do this through the “Collaboration for Good Society”, a cooperative network of active citizens and civil society groups working for inclusive and
sustainable development.


Social synergy for active well-being society




To achieve our vision and goals, we focus on 3 principal areas:

  • Active Citizens for social mobilization
  • Collaborative Platforms for solving social problems
  • Resources Mobilization for shared social goals

Collaboration Principles

  • Shared Vision and Values: Partners and stakeholders of Khon Thai Foundation’s collaborative platforms should share enough values and goals to move forward and connect with other networks in order to bring about change in society together. Open discussion based on mutual respect for diversity is necessary for productive collaboration.
  • Complementarity of Purpose and Value Added: Collaborating with multiple players in society through teaming up for short and long-term goals. Give opportunities to all sectors to participate and take action to create change. Attain common objectives through mutual respect for each other’s expertise, skills, and experiences for sustainable success.
  • Autonomy and Independence: The collaboration between Khon Thai Foundation and stakeholders must be based on mutual respect for each other’s organizational ethics and independence. Since funding may affect power relations, the foundation must not pressure stakeholders to adopt the foundation’s stance. The foundation must also respect differences such as stakeholders’ cultural identity, work directions, and priorities.
  • Transparency and Mutual Accountability: Khon Thai Foundation and partners must be accountable to stakeholders such as donors and funding agencies by adhering to transparency and providing meaningful social impacts.
  • Clarity on Roles and Responsibilities: Collaboration between stakeholders and Khon Thai Foundation is based on clear contracts and mutual understanding of each other’s roles and responsibilities. Funding decisions are based on thorough considerations and procedures. Open discussion is the policy to reach mutual understanding on strategies and project collaboration with each stakeholder. It is also the responsibility of Khon Thai Foundation to create opportunities and provide suggestions for stakeholders to foster a better society together.
  • Commitment to Joint Learning: As a learning organization, Khon Thai Foundation is committed to facilitate the quest of learning with stakeholders continuously and systematically so we can grow together from joint learning and through actually working with each other.
