About CARE International in Thailand
CARE International’s work in Thailand began in 1979, initially responding to the influx of Cambodian refugees in need of aid along Thailand’s borders. In 1984, CARE International began expanding its work in Thailand to address education access, food and nutrition security, and HIV/AIDS prevention.
The Raks Thai Foundation (RTF) was established on August 15, 1997, as a Thai successor to CARE International (Thailand) in promoting strong communities and assisting the disadvantaged in society.
The Raks Thai Foundation became a member of CARE International on January 2003, becoming the confederation’s first member from the Global South.
Today, Raks Thai’s work focuses on protecting the environment and natural resources, increasing youth’s access to education, promoting women’s access to healthcare and economic empowerment, and working with survivors of domestic violence.
