For every child, Childhood

Thailand is firmly established as a middle-income country. Economic growth over the last two decades has been impressive: poverty has fallen by around two-thirds since 1990, despite the 1997 economic crisis from which Thailand has fully recovered. This prosperity, combined with a growing awareness of and commitment to child rights, has resulted in successive governments investing in the wellbeing and future of children. These investments have brought hugh, often life-changing benefits to millions of children.
