The Ratchasuda Foundation

"Every disabled person has a dream, and hopes like we do.
Disabled people have less opportunity in every aspect.
Help them to achieve success in education as much as their potential allows"

Background :

The Ratchasuda Foundation was established by the command of HRH Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn, with the aim providing funds for education of disabled persons and supporting research that would benefit them. Her Royal Highness graciously bestowed her name “Ratchasuda” to the foundation on Visakabucha day, on Tuesday 28th May 1991, and continues to act as the Royal Patron of the Foundation. The Foundation has provided opportunities for those with physical disablilites, such as: the deaf, the dumb, those unable to speak or having speech defects, those with visual disabilities, mental and physical disabilities, or those with movement disabilities, to have the opportunity to study further at university at all levels, taught by the normal people.

Since its establishment, the foundation has expanded its activities to support the education of normal people who provide services to the disabled, such as administrators dealing with the disabled, special education teachers, and those in institutions for the rehabilitation of the disabled. We also provide various services for the disabled, for example giving the advice about sign language services. Future plans include expansion of help to the other categories of disabled, such as: behaviorally disabled, educationally disabled and mentally retarded persons, as well as the partially disabled people.

Donation :
Providing educational services and job training will able the disabled to take care of themselves - this is the greatest merit.
The Ratchasuda Foundation accepts financial contributions, assets, equipment and other materials that will be useful for the educating the disabled, for developing their occupations, and for enabling disabled persons to lead independent lives.
