Child’s Dream was established in 2003 as a charitable organisation dedicated to unconditional help for underprivileged children in the 'Mekong Sub-Region'.
Our mission is to empower marginalised communities to shape their own future. We achieve this by working with communities to improve health care and education for children and provide socioeconomic opportunities for families.
We focus on education because it is proven to be one of the most important factors for sustained social and economic development. Education also promotes a culture of peace, tolerance and understanding and builds the foundation of diversity, human rights and freedom.
One of the most important reasons why children and youth in the Mekong Sub-Region cannot complete their education is feeble health. In certain geographical areas of our mandate we therefore have to start on basic health interventions to reduce childhood mortality and to allow children to participate in education.
Child's Dream together with diversethics Foundation are addressing these issues via their three focus groups. Child's Dreams core competence is 'Basic Education' whereas diversethics Foundation is running most of the programmes in the focus group 'Health' and some programmes under 'Higher Education'.

•Health: Our health programmes range from malaria control to basic health intervention such as immunisation, deworming and the provision of Vitamin A. Our Children’s Medical Fund provides life saving operations to hundreds of sick children who are unable to afford treatment.
• Basic education: This group builds educational facilities such as schools and boarding houses to offer basic education to all children. We also improve our basic education projects with drinking water systems, playgrounds and organise extracurricular activities. In addition, we run a high school scholarship programme for underprivileged youth.
• Higher education: Our focus group ‘Higher Education’ (HE) creates opportunities for employment and income generation, knowledge and skills transfer as well as community capacity building. This group runs a university scholarship programme for young adults and employment centres, provides vocational training and holds a number of higher education programmes in refugee camps along the Thai-Burmese border.
Child’s Dream is often looking for volunteers who would like to work in our Chiang Mai or Siem Reap offices or on site in a project supported by us.
Marc Thomas Jenni is Co-Founder and Head of Finance and Administration of Child's Dream.
