thinkSMALL Foundation is a registered Thai foundation. Since 2007, thinkSMALL teams have exposed over 239,000 children in 8 nations to fun outreaches that help children stand together to resist trafficking, abuse and drugs.
thinkSMALL partners with local teams through a proven 3-Step process:
1. Entertainment Shows
Children make life decisions from their hearts (first) and their heads (second).
2. Education (ongoing)
After the shows, children enter a 1-year fun curriculum!
Children are trained how to be leaders of other children through our children’s leadership strategies!
Our thinkSMALL Bangkok team went to train a hill tribe in Central Thailand through a local church in Suan Phung Ratchaburi– close to Burma. The population of the hill tribe includes non-citizens, Karen Thai, and Burmese residents who live in an environment similar to a refugee camp. The area is at high risk for abuse and trafficking, confirmed by stories our team heard. The area is only three hours from Bangkok but most people in this area have never seen or been to Bangkok before.
We trained parents and 30 team leaders on our Child Protection Workshops: about the calling to protect children, children’s rights, and implementing a child policy. We also trained children through a Child Empowerment outreach to protect them from abuse and trafficking. There were 85 children in attendance.
