Pannee Limchaoren, head of the Pattaya Social Development Office, opened the Aug. 20 workshop for 46 teachers with Margaret Granger from the Hand to Hand Foundation and Phusa Sriwilas from ECPAT International at Pattaya City Hall.
Pattaya teachers and school administrators are given training on child-protection laws and how to detect abuse at a seminar run by the Hand to Hand Foundation and ECPAT International.
The two organizations are planning five events through March to teach educators and social workers about child-protection laws and the Convention of Rights of the Child. The convention is a “contract between nations” that children from all countries are entitled to certain rights from birth and that member countries must act to protect those rights.
The training consisted of educating to build a foundation in collecting information for each school leading to writing a policy on children protection that can be implemented.
