The DASchild Foundation

About us

Development and Support for Children Foundation, or DASchild, was founded by Mark and Nalin Decker, an American-Thai couple that lived and worked in Thailand for eight years.

Mark and Nalin Decker

Nalin started her non profit career as a program coordinator for The Asian Migrant Center, an organization that focuses on creating re entry programs for Thai domestic workers living abroad, in Hong Kong in the mid 90s. Her work continued in California in 1999 as she worked for the Asian Law Alliance where she led an outreach program for Thai volunteer services.

The development of DASchild has been a long work in progress and without the help and support of the board below, it never would have happened.
