About Safe Child Thailand

For over 35 years Safe Child Thailand has worked with the most vulnerable of children and their families living in Thailand. We have worked with a wide variety of partners working in the fields of residential care, education and child protection. Following an organisational review in May 2019 we have developed a new strategy providing the charity with new opportunities and ambitious goals. The Operational Strategy will focus on our new direction of Care Reform and over the next three years our key priorities will be: Building Our Capacity, Empowering Our Partners and Applying Our Learning. This is an exciting time for Safe Child Thailand and key to our future success is the need for a dynamic and creative Trust fundraiser to secure income for our charitable cause keeping children and their families safe in Thailand.
