These are examples of some of the children recently referred to Children of the Forest emergency education school.  This programme identifies stateless children who are not receiving any education, who cannot speak Thai and provides them with a bridge into the Thai education system.  As well as Thai language instruction our emergency programme combines with The Sangkhlaburi Art programme ( an art therapy programme in a partnership between COF, Arteca and Circus Action International) and Border Lands ( a specialized COF /Atreca programme for stateless youth at risk) to give training & instruction in safe living in Thailand,  child rights, sex education, healthy body and mind workshops, special courses for youth at risk and opportunities for creative self expressions with our art trainers. We also work with the children’s parents / care givers to help them understand the importance and value of education to their children’s futures. As many stateless families send their children, unaccompanied, to the cities to work from a very young age this work is especially important in helping curb the ever growing numbers of children being trafficked from this area.

This programme is run in partnership with
