We do this through the “Collaboration for Good Society”, a cooperative network of active citizens and civil society groups working for inclusive and

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.
