Children of Chiang-mai is an orphanage in Thailand run by Chris Gold. Chris has been a dear friend of Marc’s and Sabina’s since Chris and Sabina worked together in 2008 on a Smith Alumnae Tour to Vietnam. (See Words from Chris upon Marc’s passing and his tribute to Marc on the CoC website.)
Chris has devoted himself to running Children of Chiang-mai since 1996. He provides each child with a safe and loving home. And from that home, Chris makes sure each child receives an education to help him reach his full potential.
On the side, Chris regularly led tours around Southeast Asia in order to earn money for Children of Chiang-mai. In addition to household, medical and local educational expenses, Chris raises funds to help pay tuition for the boys who pursue further education in England or elsewhere. (Oxford-educated himself, Chris also serves as the British Honorary Council in Chiang-mai.)
Over the years more than 30 boys have lived in Chris’s home. He currently has 13 charges ranging from age 5 to age 28.
