To prevent child trafficking in Northern Thailand with education, shelter and love.
Prevention through Education
Education is the foundation of FTD's mission. Our Daughters receive educational funding through university to enable them to be self-supporting adults upon graduation. Many of our Daughters attend or have graduated from Thailand's top universities. Graduates have gone on to become nurses, teachers, artists and entrepreneurs.
Protection through Safe Shelter
In 2015, the Otto & Fran Walter Foundation provided the funding to purchase our first permanent Sunflower House in Chiang Rai. FTD Daughter Mee Aryi is our General Manager and loving housemother, mentoring and guiding our fifteen Daughters, ages 8 through 18.
In 2016, we established a second Sunflower House in Chiang Khong in partnership with the Child Rights Protection Center. It is home to thirteen Daughters, ages 12 through 18.
Support through Loving Kindness
FTD is not just a program, it's a family where older sisters care and mentor younger ones. After Daughters graduate from college, they remain family members receiving emotional and professional support as they forge their careers and build their lives as strong, self-confident and independent young women.
