Social workers from 31 organizations were trained to use the Human Help Network Foundation (Thailand)’s Child Protection Card Game during the program’s first year.
Chonburi social worker Janjira Thaibandith summarized the results from the card game’s first 12 months at a presentation for government, charity and NGO representatives at Diana Garden Resort Pattaya Oct. 5.
She said the card game project, funded with 293,450 baht from the province’s Social Welfare Promotion Fund, was introduced to 50 people from 31 organizations – 25 from NGOs, seven from schools and 11 from government agencies.
The card game is a fun way to teach children about how to stay safe when on their own and not fall prey to those who would want to kidnap or exploit them. HHN officials have gone themselves, or trained others, to play the game in slums, schools and children’s homes.
Janjira distributed sets of cards to those in attendance. Anyone interested in buying a set can do so at the HHN’s headquarters for 999 baht. Call 038-488-956 for more information.
