Radchada had been introduced to ChildRight by Peter Schönherr of the Rotary Club of the Eastern Seaboard. The gala was started by ChildRight founder Jan Tinbergen, a Nobel laureate himself.
Radchada said she was well received by the many important sponsors, members of the organization and laureates, including ChildRight President Robert Brochard. She was invited to speak in front of the group to introduce HHN’s work.

In her humble yet determined, friendly yet persuasive was, she managed to win the hearts of many, and perhaps earn ChildRight’s monthly sponsorship to send children of migrant workers to school.
Tinbergen founded ChildRight in 1994, believing it was a scandal to let children suffer without education and in poverty.
The organization raised 200.000 euros from tickets, sponsorships and auctions at the gala.
