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!
Risky children learned to stay away from trafficking!
It is estimated that more than 8% of children between ages five and 14 are involved in the workforce in Thailand. Impoverished children have no option but to enter into factory work, fishery work, construction or agriculture. In Southern Thailand near the ocean, children are exploited into the harshest forms of child labor which include seafood and shrimp processing.
thinkSMALL’s Trang Southern Thailand team trained children at a local school in Kantang. They taught the Child Empowerment Against Trafficking and Abuse program to 54 pre-school and primary school students, who learned to stay free and safe.
