The Dulabhatorn Foundation - มูลนิธิ ดุลภาทร - is a non-religious, non-political, non profit charity situated in Chiang Mai, Northern Thailand. Its focus is to provide support and resources for marginalized children and young people and their communities. With an emphasis on education, we support the development and financing of various projects. (We welcome your involvement and help in making significant improvements to the lives of these children. The financial support given by those who donate as well as the time and effort given by our volunteers enable us to continue this work.)
The Dulabhatorn Foundation is dedicated to improving access to education for disadvantaged special-needs children and young people in Northern Thailand.
Participation in our Promise-a-Child programme implies a commitment of three years of assured monthly subsidy of 1000 baht or US$ 30 per month could turn these children's lives around.
Since its inception, DBF has narrowed its focus from supporting many different groups to concentrating on children and young adults with special needs Treatments for these individuals are severely lacking in Northern Thailand and the frequency of services may require a 3 month wait between appointments. Those who also have financial difficulties may not even support travel expenses to and from the hospital. Thus DBF acts as an option for the families including physical, occupational, equine, and hydro therapies among the many other developmental activities.
We have also initiated a toddler Program for our youngest participants which means that we can offer programs involving early intervention through Vocational training and the transition into possible employment in the community. Specialized education for those who are able to continue in a field of their choice is also an possibility.
We are Saddened to report the passing of Brian Doberystyn, founder and major financial supporter of the Dulabhatorn Foundation. His contributions to the foundation and the poor, disadvantaged, disabled children and families will be missed. His legacy and work will continue under the direction of his sister, assisted by his incredible and capable staff.
