This project was initiated to identify the challenges facing a large population of extremely vulnerable children living in and around construction sites in Thailand, and the recommended responses to overcoming those challenges.
Crucially, this project documents key initiatives from private sector stakeholders that have aimed to support these children in the framework of CSR & Sustainability efforts.

By exploring the children’s needs, examples of responses, and companies, a Framework for Action is proposed in order to structure future discussions for scaling up support to children living in construction site camps throughout Thailand.
