T4T-Annual Report 2013
Toys for Thailand, Inc is a non-profit public benefit corporation in San Diego, California. Our international group of volunteers has been providing tangible goods and services for 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. These impoverished schools are 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. Hill tribe schools often lack toilets, clean water or electricity and so remote, they are reachable only by four-wheel drive vehicles.
Our goal is to support Tribal schools with resources that improve the living conditions and learning environments for their students. Our current projects focus on assisting schools in the Maehongson Province, one of the most remote areas in Thailand. This area is ranked 77 out of 77 in academic achievement. The average annual income per family is around 10,000 baht or just over $300 US.

What We Do
Many tribal children in northern Thailand die each year from exposure, malaria, dengue fever, other diseases and health conditions resulting from malnutrition and poor sanitation. In addition to the challenges just to survive, these children face overwhelming difficulties and risksHelp Today»
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»
