Thaneen Joy Hanfaifa (Founder, President)
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, Joy and her family cared for the children themselves and also for the needy children in their village.
Joy studied Home Economics in Chiang Mai and in 1998 she opened a guesthouse for culturally interested travelers together with her large family.
In 2001 she was already co-founder of an aid project for orphans and in 2006 she founded Children's Shelter Foundation together with Ulrike Meister to help disadvantaged and disabled children, and to realize her family-oriented concept.
Ulrike's life was, and is still 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 gained experience in various institutions for disabled people, older people and young children. She completed Business Management and Industrial Sales training in a large workshop for disabled people. To bring economical and social aspects in line was the challenge - a challenge that she still faces today.
Her prior education was then followed by training as a Medical Practitioner specializing in Asian medicine. Before she decided to move to Thailand and start a charity project there in 2006, she worked in her own clinic for Chinese medicine and Ayurvedic medicine in Germany.
