Summary

This shelter home and education support program protects and prevents at-risk girls from being exploited and trafficked through a highly traversed border area in Northern Thailand. 15 girls receive shelter protection, government school education, life skills development training, nutritious homemade meals, and family outreach services.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Chiang Khong is located in northern Thailand, the heart of the Greater Mekong Sub-region. This region is highly traversed by human traffickers, both because of several border crossings with Myanmar and Laos, and because of the vulnerable populations of ethnic minority and stateless children who reside there. Multiple socio-cultural, familial, and personal factors put our girls and many of their peers at very high risk of exploitation, especially trafficking into the commercial sex industry.

How will this project solve this problem?

This program, called the Mekong Child Rights Protection Center (M-CRPC), provides room and board, basic necessities and medical care, scholarships for local government school education, school supplies, transportation to/from school, and life skills and vocational training to its residents through the 9th grade. The program also gives partial aid for local government school education and health care related costs and family-based support services to 38 non-resident girls and boys.

Potential Long Term Impact

Each day these girls are under the care of this program is another day that they are safe, healthy, cared for, and able to live more meaningful lives. The girls will take with them critical vocational and life skills, school education, human rights awareness, leadership skills, and the belief that their lives are valuable. These children represent the opportunity to not only escape from danger, but to reach their human potential.
