About us

 was established in Bangkok in April 2006
with the aim of improving the information available worldwide for
designing policies and programmes for children.

In 2010 Knowing Children moved the majority of its activities to Malaysia,
although it retains a small office in Mae Sot, Thailand.

Children: Human beings less than 18 years of age.
The word ‘knowing’ has two meanings – both of which guide the work we do:
Noun – the state of being aware and informed;
Adjective – having knowledge, being wise.
Thus the organization is committed to:

  • Being aware of and informed about children;
  • Respecting children’s wisdom and expertise.
