Thailand

Country Info

CARE’s work in Thailand began in 1979, initially responding to the Cambodian refugee influx along Thailand’s borders. The Raks Thai Foundation (the local name of CARE in Thailand) became a member of CARE International on January 2003, becoming the first CARE member from a developing country.

Our Work in Thailand

Child Poverty

Half of all children live in poverty, spending their formative years struggling to survive.  

Youth Empowerment

Addressing the needs of the 1.8 billion young people in the world is critical to ending poverty.

Girls' Education

The majority of the 57 million children out of school are girls — their future is at risk.

HIV & AIDS

Poverty is both a cause and consequence of HIV and AIDS.

Poverty & Social Justice

Everyone in the world has the right to a life free from poverty, violence and discrimination.

Climate Change

Climate change threatens the very survival of people living in poverty all over the world.

Child Marriage

Child marriage is a gross human rights violation that puts young girls at great risk.

Why Women & Girls?

Why does CARE fight global poverty by focusing on women and girls? Because we have to.

Our Vision

We seek a world of hope, tolerance and social justice, where poverty has been overcome and people live in dignity and security.
