BUILDING BETTER LIVES FOR THE WORLD'S POOREST PEOPLE

J851N Give Kids Hope Training Centre, Thailand.

Thailand, Asia

Project Description

This project works with children at risk and provides them with life skills training and education support to help them gain employment.

The children of Northern Thailand exist in a dangerous environment of drugs, prostitution and poverty. These children come from low income families where villagers are unemployed or have only casual, seasonal employment on low wages.  Hill tribe children are often poorly educated.  A large number of hill tribe children are left in the care of elderly relatives, especially grandparents, while the mothers work in the big cities and rarely see their children.  The girls are particularly vulnerable due to the cultural attitude against female education and the cultural practice of early marriage, often at the age of 12 years and younger.
