About The Mirror Foundation.
Foundation was founded in 1991 by a tiny group of five students. Since then, we
have continuously expanded to become one of the most prominent Thai Non
Governmental Organization. To accomplish our primal goal of social development,
we promote Human Rights, Education, the use of New Media and Information
Technologies, Volunteer training and resources sharing.
We strongly believe that it is essential to act as a mirror reflecting
society as a whole. To improve social welfare, we thus need to catch both urban
and rural reality, to use both new means of communication as social media and
traditional ones. It is why we implement a triple approach. First we Develop
Human resources, constructing a grassroots activists network through efficient
training. Then, we Build Innovation, supporting breakthrough initiatives coming
from the basis. Finally, we Make a Difference by being the spokesperson of
those who are not heard.
The Mirror Foundation works
in a variety of areas. Nationality assistance, Missing Persons Project (Help
family finding missing childing), Human on street project (Help person who live
on street and access welfare state) , Volunteer work with sick children in the
Foundation does not affiliate with any political organization.
We are deeply convinced
that the enhancement of Social Development cannot be reached without massive
collective wills and initiatives. To translate them into concrete achievements,
they need to be aimed at core concerns. It is why we have to be able to
identify concrete problems the poorest face.
Through our Volunteer
Program we provide our activists with practical and theoretical tools. For more
than 20 years, we have managed to builda skilled nationwide grassroots network.
Its members channel information, data and experience, which allow us to identify
people’s need. They spread even more our knowledge and actions.
Innovation is the key of
efficiency, paving the way for a renewed society. We create tools and processes
to tackle the obstacles we encounter and resolve the problem we identify. We
support and promote inventive actions from our activists. It is the source of
our dynamism since our creation.
Make the Difference
The two first steps allow
us to make the difference by raising accurate questions unknown from the
general public. It enables us to speak for those who cannot> It commits us
to express the needs of the homeless, the distress of child-beggars, the
loneliness of the aged. It reinforces in turn the necessity of innovation and
