Thailand has been ranked as one of the countries with the highest rate of gross disparity in the world as the country is faced with various complex social issues. The public is also seldom informed about such circumstances. This means their participation and collaboration in addressing such issues are lacking. The world is faced with many forms of uncertainties and challenges, which certainly cannot be addressed individually by one sector nor a single group of individuals. Therefore, it would be necessary to create a systematic change by mobilising collaboration from all sectors and groups to successfully reduce disparities in society.
Objectives and the organisation’s roles in the ecosystem
Khonthai Foundation aims to create a participatory ecosystem that drives “social change”. The Foundation acts a “facilitator” that coordinates efforts through its networks and partnerships to tackle various social problems. It mobilises collaboration from all the people of Thailand and stakeholders from all sectors so that they could support each other in addressing issues related to disparities in order to promote a well-being in society.
We are a social service organisation for a sustainable society. We believe that in our big and complex society full of diversity, effective solutions require collaboration from all sectors. We are working closely with intermediary organisations which are mobilising change in a variety of issues. Our goal is to empower “active citizens” so they can systematically take part in effecting social changes for the common good. Our “Thailand Collaboration for Change Platform” acts as a coordinating body to connect civic groups with needed resources such as funding, human resources, knowledge, and networking so they can effectively mobilise social change.
We support “Social Investment Platforms” which are a collaboration among businesses, social enterprises, a network of social entrepreneurs, and the general public. The platforms include www.taejai.com, BKIND Mutual Fund, Thai CG Funds, and the Media for Social Justice Fund. We support these platforms by providing them with necessary funding to strengthen their work. We have initiated Media Collaboration for Change as a platform to engage the mass media and influencer to advocate as well as support sustainable development. We are also working with international organisations to foster a favourable social ecosystem for collaboration and social synergy to create a well-being society.
