Chatchai Aphibanpoonpon

Chatchai brings his unique leadership and social innovation experience to solve problems faced by people with disabilities (PWDs).

Currently, Chatchai holds a dual role at the forefront of social inclusion advocacy as founder & CEO of social innovation lab Klongdinsor Co. Ltd and President at the Together Foundation for People with Disability and Society.

A social entrepreneur, maker and explorer, Chatchai founded Klongdinsor to utilise social innovation and support PWDs inclusion through three areas: improving education, creating employment and raising awareness.

Starting his journey volunteering at Bangkok School for the Blind, he witnessed the unique and unaddressed challenges for children with visual impairments to access education. Innovations his team has developed include the Lensen Drawing Kit that supports creativity by drawing through touch and Run2gether, an inclusive running community – bringing together Chatchai’s passion for running.

Chatchai is keen to learn from other best practices and hopes to drive new partnerships from his involvement in the EI fellowship. His work has helped him realise that PWDs face environmental challenges – not personal ones – that disable them, opening an opportunity to build the right tools, infrastructure and mindsets that allow us to take on these problems together as a society.
