building strong communities

We believe in the capacity of youth, university students and skilled professionals to create a new future for communities in need. Our work shapes global citizens who partner to bring real benefit and change to local communities, the marketplace and the world. Together we bring assistance to children at risk, victims of terror, survivors of natural disasters and refugees fleeing oppressive governments.

Since the beginning, Imagine Thailand's focus has been on connecting two sides of Thailand's society - university students with the education to initiate transformation and local communities with great needs.  Imagine Thailand is a bridge between these opposite ends. We believe in those who have society’s permission to bring change can do just that—catalyze change. We believe in a new generation of young adults who want to make a meaningful difference in their world. We believe in Thai students and young professionals who stand ready to bring transformation to local communities and society. We see young adults as having the ability to be community contributors, people who can add value to a local community by improving the quality of life.

Imagine Thailand is a registered Thai foundation (registered as Imagine Thailand Foundation, reg. no. กท 1917) with Thai and Canadian leadership. Motivated by our Christian faith, we assist people regardless of race, religion, political affiliation or gender.


“We believe in a new generation of young adults who want to make a meaningful difference in their world.”

PETER DOVE |  Co-Founder



From our inception, Imagine Thailand has worked to serve people in Thailand by embodying these values.

01. BRidge Building

We bring people together: from different communities, organizations and nations. We connect those who have resources and opportunities, with those who don’t. We pursue mutually beneficial exchanges.



Each person is created with inherent value and incredible potential. We celebrate equality and diversity.



03. presence

We put people on the ground. We invest in the communities where we serve, for the long haul. Our work is shaped by expressed community needs, not an organizational agenda.


04. Open-handedness

We freely share what we have: time, resources, ideas, and people. We embrace partnerships because we believe we are better together.


05. Transformation

We desire to see a changed nation through empowered people. 


06. Gap Filling

We prioritize working in areas, geographic or demographic, where there is little being done. We lessen the difference between the ideal and the real.
