Toys for Thailand, Inc is a non-profit public benefit corporation in San Diego, California. Our international group of volunteers have been providing tangible goods and services for orphaned, abandoned, and refugee children in Thailand since 2005.
Our focus is to support the health, education and welfare of hill tribe children with no underlying religious or political agenda. Through humanitarian trips to northern Thailand, Toys for Thailand volunteers deliver instructional, vocational, agricultural resources to residential hill tribe schools, severely under served by the local Thai government due to limited resources and political bureaucracy. The school children we provide for live in absolute poverty at village schools often lacking toilets, clean water or electricity and so remote, they are reachable only by four-wheel drive vehicles.
Our goal is to transform impoverished schools into dream schools, a designation given to a high quality model schools in Thailand. Since 2007, Toys for Thailand has provided extensive resources to support the Kings (Romklao PangTong) School and in 2011 the school was honored to receive a Dream School Award by the Thai government.
Our current projects focus on assisting various schools in the Maehongson Province, the poorest area of Thailand that ranks 77 out of 77 in academic achievement.

What We Do

Toys for Thailand started in 2004, in the aftermath of the Asian Tsunami. Initially, our focus was emergency relief and comfort for children impacted by the devastation. From 2005 – 2007 we provided children orphaned by the tsunami and schools that served them with everything from toys, bicycles, blankets and shoes to medical supplies, instructional materials, and computer labs.Our Mission»
