Building and expanding the network of community services so that they provide sustainable support for women and children impacted by insecurity and violence in the southern border provinces of Thailand
The goal is to strengthen women and children to confront adverse socio-economic consequences of violence and insecurity of the political situation in Pattani, Yala, and Naratiwat Provinces. Women’s occupation groups have been formed to pursue small-scale enterprise. Members receive training and capacity building so that they can earn supplemental income to improve their living conditions and cover household expenses. That should help these families to keep their young children in school. Youth are also trained to be peer leaders and acquire learning and occupational skills.
For many decades, there has been violence in the southern border provinces due to a separatist movement. Women and children are the indirect victims of violence when the male heads of households are killed or disabled by the violence. This project attempts to blunt the trauma from the violence and help affected women to become economically self-reliant. So far, 1,134 women have been assisted by the program (based on data for the period from 2011 through June 30, 2014).
