An unusual time for the Thai training team

By James Paul | Senior Grant Writer

Learning the importance of teamwork

This update focuses on our work in Thailand.  The last few months have been slightly unsettling for the Thailand team. The death of the King of Thailand has deeply affected the whole country with a year of mourning put in place.  It has also affected the team’s training schedule both for this year and next year.  The government has advised the general public not to set any calendar plans for 2017 in stone, as there will be revisions made to public holidays.

The team has also had to cancel a workshop in the south of Thailand due to heightened violence in the region.  As one of the training team explains:  

“I am realising more and more how flexible we need to be, and I appreciate how the people of Thailand are so good at it.  At the beginning of this week we talked about our trip to the south to train the last three child welfare homes, to complete phase one of our training. The day after we booked tickets, we received a call from one of the homes that the situation in the south is not safe, so it would be best for us not to come. There has been ongoing unrest in the southern-most regions of the country, and this week there have been bombs and people killed. Even those living there, as residents, feel afraid to go out. Several roads that the participating homes would travel on to attend the training have been closed, and we do not want to put them at risk.”

Even with all these unsettling events, the Thai team is keen to continue the roll-out of the national foster care project, with the goal of reaching all 20 government run child welfare homes across the country, ensuring they can start moving children out of the institution and into local families.  

In other news, the team recently spent time with with an NGO that operates a small children’s home in a town along the Burmese border.  With the aim of reunifying all the children with their families or alternatively identifying foster families for them, the team introduced family placement to the staff from the NGO.  The staff will also spend some time with a family placement worker from one of our sites who has had over 20 years of experience as a foster parent and family placement worker.
