Short description:
The Duang Prateep Foundation (DPF) is located in the heart of Klong Toey Slum, Bangkok’s largest slum community. It was started in 1978 by the desires of slum dwellers to shape their own destiny.
Over the years the Foundation has expanded its role to meet the needs of poor communities, especially the urban poor, and sought to empower community organizations as they confront the myriad problems they face. The role of the Foundation has been particularly important in the struggle against drug abusers.
Duang Prateep Foundation has a proven record of developing civil society organizations amongst Bangkok’s poorest residents and of regular successful work with community group.
