The Situation for Children in the Southern Provinces of Thailand

The Southern border provinces of Pattani, Yala, and Narathiwat rank among the 20 poorest in Thailand. These provinces are home to over 65 percent of Thailand’s Muslim Malay minority population. Since 2004, the area has been affected by on-going conflict. Economic inequities and the lack of opportunities for youth in the Deep South have been identified as one of conflict drivers. Through United States Agency for International Development (USAID) support, USAID ACHIEVE, Save the Children and the ACTED have been working with local partners and stakeholders to implement a People-to-People (P2P) model for vocational training (VT) of vulnerable youth in the Deep South of Thailand. Four hundred girls/women, boys/men, and children/youth between 15 and 25 years will benefit, which will not only improve their employment chances but, through an innovative collaborative learning methodology, will also foster inter-communal cooperation skills.
