People who are stateless are at risk of any forms of exploitation. In Thailand, still there are stateless people living at border areas between Thailand and neighbour countries. One of AAT's works is to help these people to gain citizenship especially those who are living between Thailand and Laos.

Last week, AAT accompanied stateless people and their families to district office to press a claim for their rights of citizenship after having been waiting for 2 years. The result has not come out, but we will work so that they can get Thai citizenship they have longed for.

On 20th July 2016, AAT Thailand met up with South Korean NGOs and shared information of situation of human trafficking of Thai women. Also, we discussed on AAT works and future collaboration.

At this moment, several South Korean organisations are paying a lot attention to the issue of Thai women trafficked to their country as there is a growing number of Thai women enter South Korea and trafficked or got caught. A lot of women were lured via Facebook to work in South Korea as masseuse, but eventually they ended up into prostitution. Masseuse or masseur is only served for South Korean citizen. Therefore, it is illegal for foreigners.

Local mechanism among Shan communities works for protecting their women and children. AAT have worked as a bridge for communities in Shan state to protect their own citizen especially women and children from human trafficking and sexual exploitation.

Last week, Shan local leaders worked together to help protect 2 groups of Shan people. One are labour migrants and another one are women from sexual exploitation. They both were pushed back from Thailand at the border area between Thailand and Myanmar. The leaders waited for them at Tachileik, border area in Myanmar, to to pick them up in order to protect them from risks of being trafficked at the border. Also, the leaders provided accommodation and food to those who are in need. Moreover, the leaders informed them about safe migration as well as contacted their relatives to pick the women up and bring them home.

AAT Program to Support at Risk Female Minors has begun its second year in Vietnam.

Yesterday, we had a great time with the kids and their families.
We congratulated 5 excellent students, welcomed 4 new children and gave best wishes to 2 young who just finished high school.
We celebrated the HARD WORK and endless EFFORTS of the families to keep their kids at school and the HOPE we all share for a BETTER FUTURE.

We connected through sharing and laughter. We couldn't be any happier to see our children GROW and get closer to their DREAMS.

Being aware of the hardship that they and their families have to face everyday, we treasure the genuine joy showed in their eyes.

We are looking for funding to keep this project going, to make sure that those innocent faces will continue to shine with love and hope.
