This project, started and managed by Friends-International, was launched in 2009 to address the range of issues faced by migrant populations at a major Cambodian/Thai border crossing. The project is based both on the Cambodian and the Thai side.
protecting people wanting to migrate to, and returning from, Thailand
The teams provide information and protection from unsafe migration: including campaigns and training
Outreach teams operate in local areas to identify and work with prospective migrants and returning migrants to access to safe and dignified employment and stabilize in Cambodia, facilitated through our Futures Employment project
protection from violence and child labor:
Outreach teams operate in local areas, including markets, to protect children from child labor and exploitation. They also provide general protection services (health care, counseling…)
