Raks Thai Foundation (RTF) emerged on August 15, 1997, succeeding CARE International (Thailand), with Dr. Krasae Chanawongse leading as the founding Chairperson of RTF and continuing as Chair of the Executive Board to the present day (2024).

Our vision is to cultivate a Civil Society where the quality of life, rights, and equality are enhanced, enabling individuals to chart their own destinies and fostering sustainable development.

RTF is committed to strengthening the capacity of marginalized communities to identify root causes of their challenges, develop appropriate solutions, and actively engage in developmental initiatives.
