About Save the Children International
Save the Children is the world's leading independent organisation for children. We work in almost 120 countries. We save children's lives; we fight for their rights; we help them fulfil their potential.
In Thailand we started our work in 1984. Our focus is on child protection, livelihood, emergencies and education. Our main beneficiaries are children from disadvantaged and poor backgrounds, displaced children inrefugee camps, and children who have been affected by conflicts. Our programmes aim to provide better quality of life and give children opportunities to receive education, live full lives, and participate in their community activities.
Save the Children’s mission is to inspire breakthroughs in the way the world treats children and to achieve immediate and lasting change in their lives.
Across all of our work, we pursue several core values: accountability, ambition, collaboration, creativity and integrity.
We undertake several programmes, all related to improving the lives of children: Protection and Participation of Children and Youth and Sustainable Livelihood in the Myanmar Refugee Camps and Thai Receiving Communities in Thailand; Strengthening Child Protection System for Vulnerable Children along the Thai-Myanmar Border; Promoting Migrant Children and Families’ Health Rights in Workplaces and Destination Communities in Thailand; Disaster Risk Reduction; Promoting Rights of Working Children to health care and development; Building Happy Communities for Children in the Deep South; and Basic Education Support Towards Transition (BEST).
The BEST programme aims to provide quality basic education to refugee students in 9 camps in Mae Hong Son, Tak, Kanchanaburi, and Ratchaburi Provinces. The project started in 2013 and is to run to 2014. It is funded by the European Union.
