Child’s Dream is a charitable, not-for-profit organisation dedicated to empowering marginalised children and youth in the Mekong Sub-Region, which includes Myanmar, Laos, Thailand and Cambodia. We achieve this by working in partnership with communities to improve the educational and health situation for their children and youth.
Our highly motivated staff in Chiang Mai (Thailand), Siem Reap (Cambodia) and Yangon (Myanmar) goes the extra mile to identify the most needy communities and beneficiaries. Our down-to-earth, bottom-up approach allows us to implement, evaluate and monitor our projects to address health and educational needs in the most efficient and effective way.
Our activities range from health interventions for children to reduce child mortality, construction of educational facilities to provide universal basic education, youth employment centers to high school and university scholarships.
We are very proud to have been awarded the prestigious 'Cross of Friendship' Medal by the Prime Minister of Laos for the over 100 educational facilities we have built so far. Many thanks to our Laos team, Koy and Gee, for their dedication and hard work.
After more than 10 years of operation, we felt it's time to document our working processes. The Child's Dream 'White Paper' was born. This is not an easy read but gives a deep insight into the way we work. Please download the White Paper here.
Child’s Dream is – for the first time - giving every child below the age of 12 a chance to express their own dreams - “My Dream” - through art in a drawing competition. Participation deadline: 24 October 2014. Click here for your entry form.
On the 22 October 2013 Child's Dream turned 10 years old. For this occasion, we produced a 10 Year Book which can be viewed online by clicking here. Enjoy and get inspired by what can be achieved with a dedicated team.
