Students at Huay Yai’s Tungka School played games to better protect themselves from abuse by strangers and family members during a visit by Human Help Network Thailand social workers.
Pirun Noyimjai, manager of HHN’s Drop-In Center, led the mobile unit to the school Feb. 22 where they organized “self-protection cards” games and had kids watch instructional cartoon videos.
One cartoon depicted a situation where a young girl is touched inappropriately by a male family member. The cartoon stressed what was proper and improper contact and what to do if it happens.
Card games followed, with kids having to sort pictures into safe and unsafe behavior. Another card game covered scenarios where children may be enticed by strangers into dangerous or exploitative situations.
The award-winning HHN card game teaches kids to aware of their surroundings and to be wary of strangers.
