Where We Work: Thailand
In Thailand we’ve supported youth at risk and those affected by the devastating 2004 tsunami as they’ve built new lives with more opportunities.
Preparing young men and women to win or create jobs, our Tsunami Reconstruction Initiative and Unlocking the Potential of Asian Youth equipped youth with life skills, vocational, and entrepreneurship training. As a critical step, our initiatives have also connected these entrepreneurs, with businesses like cashew processing and handicraft production, with the funding to make their plans reality. Today, Thailand is featured among the countries studied for the Global Youth Wellbeing Index, a joint venture with CSIS with financial support from Hilton Worldwide.
