Baan Dek Foundation (BDF) is a Thai-registered Foundation with a mission to provide access to education, health and safety services for vulnerable children living in urban slums and construction site camps in Thailand. These children are often left unattended in these severely hazardous living environments while their parents are at work on construction sites. They experience limited access to essential services and their fundamental rights, and are at high risk of neglect, abuse and exploitation.

BDF maintains and builds upon an extensive network of multi-sector partnerships that contribute to its operations. BDF forms innovative MOU partnerships with Thai real estate and construction companies (key private sector stakeholders) to reach large numbers of vulnerable families in need and establishes relationships with public services to support these families (ex. public schools, health centers, shelters, and the Ministries of Health and Education). Today, the Foundation supports over 1,500 vulnerable children in Thailand every year through complementary programs that provide sustainable support and life-saving access to education, health, and safety. BDF achieves systemic impact in the Thai construction sector by working with major property and construction companies to improve living conditions for labor migrants and their families.

At present, Baan Dek Foundation has offices in Chiang Mai and Bangkok, Thailand.
