The history of RAJVITHI HOME FOR GIRLS can be traced back to 1890 when the first “orphanage” in Thailand was graciously established by the donation of Her Royal Highness Pravimadather Krompra Suddhasininart. It was situated on Bamrung Mueang Road at Tambon Suanmali in Pathumwan District of Bangkok. The primary objective of this orphanage was to provide residential care for the orphaned boys and girls including the children who could not be adequately looked after by their own parents.

The operation of this orphanage was subsequently terminated. After which, the Siamese Women Association under the leadership of Thunphuying Yommaraj had raised fund from the public for setting up a new orphanage on the same location. It was then named “Benjamarachutit School” and started its services on October 23, 1911. This school had been under the patronage of H.M. Queen Sripatcharintra and was built up to serve as a memorial to H.M. King Rama V.


A plot of land at Phayathai District (the present location) was conferred through the Bureau of Crown Property, together with the royal fund of 200,000 Baht, to be utilized particularly for welfare and education of the orphaned and needy children. As the results, Benjamarachutit School was then moved to the new location while its name was changed to “Chart Songkroh School” meaning “the National Welfare School” . This child welfare facility was graciously opened by Her Royal Highness Somdej Prapanwatsa Aiyigajao on June 24, 1941

After the establishment of the Department of Public Welfare, the administration of Chart Songkroh School was accordingly transferred from the Bangkok Municipality to this Department on November 4, 1948, under the condition of the conferment that “H.M. the King conferred this land on purpose to provide education, particularly for orphans and disadvantaged children”
Afterwards, its name has been once more modified to be Rajvithi Home for Girls ever since. The Home’s land covers about 23.2 acres consisting of homes for children, homes for officers and others totaling 46 buildings.
