Host organisation: Foundation for Education and Development (FED) – Mae Sot

I am a freshman at Kamphaengphet Rajabhat University (Mae Sot campus) majoring in Education. I’m interested in this programme as I want to exchange conversation with migrant workers. Migrant labour is very important for Thai economy, especially in industrial and agricultural sector. Not only do they work super hard and often earn too little, their working conditions are usually hazardous; they often face injury. In spite of their contribution, many migrants receive little or no health benefits from the government. I think that this programme will allow me to extend my hand to migrant workers who are in need. I would like to educate them so that they can demand their basic rights and know how to prevent themselves from being exploited or even trafficked.
