Challenge

Poverty and domestic violence are the main reasons children in Thailand become homeless. They may be rejected from their families or choose to leave due to abuse. Living on the streets they face serious risks and challenges including sexual exploitation, trafficking, drug addiction, gang violence, health problems and malnourishment, neglect and depression. Thailand suffers from a lack of progressive social services and support systems, leaving children with nowhere to turn.

Solution

Childline Thailand's Hub harm reduction centre has developed over the last ten years to provide a lifeline to children in street situations. Through extensive research we have created a safe space and developmental programs where youths are given the opportunity to build a new life and escape from the streets. This project will help solve the problem of homelessness in Thailand by allowing us to care for more children.

Long-Term Impact

Childline Thailand Foundation have worked tirelessly to provide child protection since 2003 and have established long term goals to reduce child homelessness in Bangkok. This project will directly benefit 200 youths by sponsoring their basic needs; an essential part of their well being whilst attending counselling, education and life skills programs. The long term effect is harm reduction for homeless children, providing an opportunity for them to improve their situations and begin a new life.
