About Thailand

Save the Children has been working in Thailand since 1984. Over the past 30 years, we have worked to deliver lasting changes for children in Thailand. We have accomplished positive child development and child protection rights. However, challenges remain on the protection of child migrants, and the establishment of effective child protection mechanism and implementation to ensure that all children enjoy full rights to survival, development, protection, and participation.
