Our team

Baby Eva Teddy Bear Foundation (BETBF) is a Norwegian privately run foundation. We have around 15 volunteers working for us, in addition to all the help we receive from the staff of our field partners; Centara Grand Beach Resort & Villas Krabi, Centara Anda Dhevi Resort & Spa Krabi and Centra by Centara Phu Pano Resort Krabi.

We have no salary costs, everyone works for free as volunteers, including management, and a 100% of our donation goes directly to our programs on the ground.

The Baby Eva-team is a group of idealistic believers in education for all and our cornerstones are: EDUCATION, HEALTH & HOPE!

On this page you well find a little introduction to some of the key people in The Baby Eva Teddy Bear Foundation’s administration.
