Thaneen Joy Worrawittayakun

Joy grew up in a socially committed family. In her childhood she was surrounded by children who had no home and Joy's parents took care of them. More and more they cared about the children themselves and also needy children in their village. Joy studied Home Economics in Chiang Mai and in 1998 opened, together with her large family, a guest house for culturally interested travelers.

In 2001 she co-founded the School for Life, which now has 140 children in a home and education. In 2006 she gave the leadership to her sister, Siriporn.


In 2007, she founded Children's Shelter Foundation with Ulrike Meister to help disadvantaged and disabled children and to realize her family-oriented approach. In the future, Joy will concentrate on the construction and management of Children's Shelter Foundation.

Ulrike Elisabeth Meister

Ulrike's life was and is shaped by social commitment. Working in a loving and meaningful way with and for people is her motive. Her goal is to create an environment that allows people to grow from the inside out.

Ulrike studied social pedagogy and gained experience in various institutions and projects with and for disabled people, old people and children.

This was followed by further training as a medical practitioner specializing in Asian medicine. Before 2006, a children's charity project in Thailand decided to utilize this, she worked in her own clinic for Chinese medicine and Ayurvedic medicine.

In 2007 she founded Children's Shelter Foundation, and at the same time the Friends Children's Shelter Association in Germany (Landsberg am Lech) with Joy Worrawittayakun.
In the future, Ulrike will concentrate on the construction and management of Children's Shelter Foundation in Thailand.
