Birthday at the Baan Kinkaew Orphanage?  Or any day for that matter!

For all of those looking for a way of giving back, putting a smile on a small child’s face or simply putting a positive spring in your step, an experience at the Baan Kinkaew Orphanage may be what you’re looking for!


The first charity in Chiang Mai dedicated to needy children, the Baan Kinkaew Orphanage was founded in 1966 through a donation of land and house by Miss Kingkaew Wiboolsanti.   Along with a group of woman volunteers, the Orphanage started to care for 25 children left at what is now known as Maharaj Nakorn Hospital (Suandok).   There have been many struggles over the years including a fire that destroyed the facility, but the Orphanage and its volunteers continue on there mission.    In 2016, they care for 50 needy boys and girls.


davYes, donations are always welcome.   There is a posted sign as you walk in listing the most urgently need donations at the time.   Of course, cash is always the best option so the orphanage can quickly fill any immediate needs.


Contact the orphanage directly if you have a month or more to spend helping out.   The ophangage can always use more help, but for the sake of young children they ask for longer term volunteers.   This helps to add some stability to the lives of the children.   This is not a hard and fast rule though, if you have any time to volunteer stop by and ask how you can help!


The Baan Kinkaew Orphanage runs a program allowing single day visits.   Many people use this opportunity to have their child’s birthday(or their own birthday) at the orphanage.   You have about an hour to watch/assist  one of the classes of children with their lunch and after lunch recess.   The kids are amazing and love to have a chance to make new friends.
The program needs to be reserved ahead of time.    As many people will visit on their birthdays, the dates can fill up quickly.   You’re asked to make a donation for the reservation.   Its 1500THB to reserve and the money will be used to cover the food costs for the day.
