Thai Entrepreneur Changing the World through Social Giving

Named to Forbes “30 under 30” list, Arch Wongchindawest is a force for innovation inside Thailand’s burgeoning social enterprise sector. A former consultant for the UN Development Program and UN Environment Program in Asia Pacific, Wongchindawest has launched several highly successful social enterprises, including IDEACUBES, Food4Good (charitable restaurant network), Wipe the Tide (supports Thailand during times of severe flood), co-founded Dogeparty ( acrypto-currency platform), and is a partner of SAMU (coconut water).

Arch is currently a Global Shaper, a core team member of Thai Young Philanthropist Network, a member of Nexus (Thailand), and a One Young World Ambassador. One Young World is a UK-based not-for-profit organization that gathers together the brightest young leaders between 18-30 years old from around the world, empowering them to develop solutions to the world’s most pressing issues to create positive change. Many have already had an impact in their home countries on a range of issues, including the role of business in society, transparency in business and government, the impact of climate change, global health and hunger relief.

Social Giver

Wongchindawest co-founded socialgiver.com, an online platform that allows consumers to shop and donate a portion of funds to charitable causes. Social Giver partners with some of Thailand’s top brands, including hotels, restaurants and spas offers amazing consumer experiences while raising funds for charitable causes. These partner organisations agree to donate a portion of their profits to Social Giver’s good causes. Social Giver funds social initiatives across Thailand, the Philippines, Myanmar and Nepal. The donations from the Social Giver have helped a range of charitbale projects, such as, saving girls from sexual abuse, rescue animals from the streets, help flood victims in Myanmar, and provide education to children in Nepal.

“To me, social entrepreneurship is the perfect solution for a world that has been spoiled by mindless capitalism. A social enterprise gives people a new choice, to move towards conscious consumerism.” – Arch Wongchindawest

Social Giver encourages consumers that may not previously have thought about charitable donations to support more disadvantaged members of society while still getting the “best deals” on their purchases. The site’s users are able to see the value of their contributions in real terms, such as, for example, the educational progress of a child whose schooling is being funded through Social Giver.

You could say that Wongchindawest is trying to change the world one purchase at a time.
