Committed to helping disadvantaged Thai and ethnic minority children whose lives have been affected by poverty.

KIDS ARK FOUNDATION is a registered non-profit organization with no religious or political affiliations.

BRIGHTER FUTURES

“All children should have the opportunity to grow up in safe and nurturing surroundings. Our goal is to optimize their health, increase their educational options and empower them with knowledge for the future.”

CHILDREN ARE OUR PRIMARY FOCUS

VISION & MISSION

OUR VISION is to break the cycle of poverty for these marginalized and at-risk children by creating and supporting opportunities directed at optimizing their all-round development.

OUR MISSION is to make it possible for some of the most vulnerable children living in northwest Thailand to receive an education through our Child Sponsorship Program. Kids Ark has established House of Hope After-School Programs where children receive homework help, learn life skills and participate in a variety of educationally-based activities in a safe and supportive community. The foundation promotes and supports early childhood education at our Daycare Center.

Our work isn’t possible without the help and support of our generous donors. If you would like to learn more about our programs and how you can help, please do not hesitate to contact us. We thank you for your interest and welcome you to join our cause.

HELPING CHANGE LIVES

OUR PROGRAMS

Through our House of Hope and Child Sponsorship Programs, Kids Ark promotes education for children and young people in order to facilitate their integration into mainstream Thai society.

CHILD SPONSORSHIP

The gift of an education is a life changing opportunity, giving a child the chance to dream and the tools to turn those dreams into reality. As a SPONSOR, your support makes it possible for a child to attend school, empowering the student with knowledge and hope for a brighter future.

HOUSES OF HOPE

Kids Ark Foundation established House of Hope After-School Programs as an extension to the school day. There the children are welcomed into a safe, nurturing community dedicated to their success in school and in life. At the Houses of Hope children are able to participate in a variety of educationally-based, esteem-building activities and enjoy a nutritious meal.

DAYCARE CENTER

Our Daycare Centers were established to provide early childhood development support to preschool-aged children, facilitating their transition to primary school and increasing their chances of completing a basic education (through grade 9).

SUCCESS STORIES

Kids Ark Foundation is proud to introduce you to some of the graduates who have benefited from our Child Sponsorship and House of Hope Programs. With your generous support, we hope to add many more names to our list of success stories.
