Foster parents needed !!!

Dear Thai Care and Raintree Foundation friends,

this week we have added 13 new children to the waiting list of our sponsorship program. We are urgently looking for godparents for the children and it would be nice if we could mediate the little ones quickly. All further information about the sponsorship as well as photos, first names and birthdays of the children can be found here:

Two of the children are absolute emergencies because the financial situation of the family is incredibly bad. You know that we never publicly show off the fate of the children to conclude sponsorships as quickly as possible. If you would like more information about the children, please send us an e-mail to or write to us via the contact form on our website.The girl is named Suchanya and is 5 years old.The boy is named Nathakun and is 8 years old.It would be great if we could find a godfather for the two kids quickly.

Get in touch 🙂 THANK YOU

School start again :-)

Our children have been allowed to go back to school since July. Even if it is mandatory to wear a mask at school despite the high temperatures, the children are very happy that they can finally be back at school.
As you already know the German Embassy in Bangkok has often supported us with great campaigns. This time we could look forward to fabric for sewing the masks. A group of Karen women used every free minute on the sewing machine to sew an incredible amount of 2000 masks! Thanks to many other donations, almost twice as many masks were created, so that our children and their families can protect themselves in public from infection with COVID-19 🙂
Many thanks to the German Embassy, ​​the AVC from Switzerland, many other donors, and of course to the women on the sewing machines ❤️❤️❤️

Food Forest

Finally the rainy season has arrived in Thailand and we’re pleased to welcome one of the first volunteer teams from the local church on our community farm to help planting more than 1.000 trees.

Those trees will be planted on the Eden Farm near Doi Saket where we recently opened our first dorm for students.

In the next few years those little seedling will grow and are then part of a “food forest”, so we will become more and more independent, create income, secure our own food, and do our part for the environment.

“The day you plant the seed is not the day you eat the fruit”

Due to the Corona pandemic the 10 Years Thai Care e.V. anniversary event was cancelled.

But this does not stop us from celebrating together with our German partner organization Thai Care e.V. We congratulate Thai Care e.V. and their team for their dedicated voluntary work over all those 10 years !!

Thank you for thousands of hours of hard work writing emails, translations, sending letters, corresponding with foster parents and volunteers, fundraising events, Christmas market events, public relations and many other activities to help children and families in need. With the help of Thai Care e.V. and the donors we could provide over 1500 children with school education and food. Thank you very much for making huge positive impacts in the lives of the children !

We are grateful to have such a wonderful partner supporting the children all those years. We raise our glasses, cheers !!!

Change children’s lives by becoming their foster parent!

This week, many new children have been accepted into our foster program, whose families have been in need due to a wide range of family fates.

By assuming a sponsorship, you ensure that children grow up safely in their familiar surroundings and attend a local state school, because education is the most important pillar for a secure future. In addition, the children receive good health care, school clothes, healthy and regular meals and loving care from our advisers in the mountains.

If you are interested in a sponsorship, please have a look at our website:

In the photos you can see the children who are currently looking for a sponsor. We would be happy to send you further information about the individual children on request.

All the best,

your RTF Team

Sad to cancel our Anniversary

Dear followers,
unfortunately we have to cancel our anniversary event due to the corona pandemic!
We’ll definitely catch up on the festival, maybe we’ll celebrate our 11th anniversary? 🙂 let’s see!
The most important thing is that everyone stays healthy, because then we have more reason to celebrate in a good mood at a later date!
Stay healthy, keep your distance and protect your loved ones!
