DAO - EMPOWERING WOMEN, INVESTING IN CHANGE
ETHICAL, SUSTAINABLE & RELIABLE
Dao is powered by Baan Dek Foundation to create a transparent and sustainable source of fundraising.
100% of profits generated go back to the programs of the Foundation, fostering children's access to education, health and safety services.
BUILDING FAMILY INDEPENDENCE
"As a woman, Dao has changed my life for the better. Dao helped me out of a dark place by discovering my love for sewing and creativity: I can really be imaginative on the fabric! As a single mother, before Dao I was unemployed and couldn't send my kids to school. I am now able to provide food, a great education, and more quality time with my kids.”
MONITORING OUR IMPACT
At Dao we take our social impact very seriously.
We have developed an accurate Resources and Results Framework with the support of Pangea (Columbia University, USA) that we monitor on a daily basis. This provides us with rigorous evidence on what works and what doesn't so that we can continue improving our trainings and emotional support for women most in need.
CHILD PROTECTION POLICY
To ensure the protection of children’s rights, and their families, Baan Dek Foundation is a Child-Safe organization where the Child Protection Policy is rigorously enforced and implemented by staff members, through all programs including Dao program. Gifts are ONLY handcrafted by Thai women above 18 years old, following Thai laws and regulations.
