Collaboration that brings positive change

At Step Ahead we believe collaboration and partnership are critical as we embrace our rather lofty goal of leaving no child behind and seeing every child in Thailand reach his or her potential in a safe and nurturing family. Just like the African proverb says, “It takes a whole village to raise a child.” We know it is not possible without genuine collaboration.

Step Ahead is a founding member of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child Coalition Thailand Alternative Care Group. (CRCCT AC) Our AC group is made up of about 10 NGOs all sharing the same vision to see children growing up in family-based care. We collaborate on advocacy and capacity building.

Step Ahead is also a founding member of Strong Families Alliance Thailand (SFAT). SFAT is a Christian alliance with the same vision to see children growing up in family-based care. We train local churches on family strengthening, UN Guidelines for the Alternative Care of Children, foster care and adoption.

Our Keeping Families Together partners with faith-based organizations, community leaders, educators, and government support services to build the capicty of adults to improve outcomes for children.

Step Ahead partners with the Thai government and International NGOs such as UNHCR, IOM and UNICEF.
