Baan Nokkamin Foundation E-mail

Baan Nokkamin Foundation (The House of Homeless Birds) is a private foundation registered under the Thai law as a non-profit organization. It is a home for orphans, street/homeless children, less privileged children and children from broken families in Thailand.


The Foundation was established in 1989 by Mr. Erwin Groedli, a missionary from Switzerland, who initially rented a room for homeless children to live in. As more children came to the house, the need for another room came up and eventually the Baan Nokkamin Foundation came into existence.


Baan Nokkamin Foundation adopts a family/home style approach as a system of upbringing the street children and running the Foundation. The members of staff of the Foundation are real husband and wife and their sole responsibility is to run these homes on a full-time basis alongside raising their own children. Each family accommodates about 10 children and parents take care of their daily needs. The children receive love and care and are offered proper education, until they are able to live on their own, so that they can be in position to help others and benefit the society.

ARI emphasizes projects focused on Skill development, Identity development, Community building, and Beautification projects of the living environment to make the space warm and inviting.
