Reduced Inequality

The disparity in employment opportunities between urban and rural societies in Thailand encourages women to pursue careers in Bangkok. Limited employment opportunities in the rural area due to dependency on agriculture (men-focused career) and the emergence of Bangkok as a tourism and export hub further amplify their determination.

However, upon arriving in Bangkok, many women can't do a variety of tasks and are exploited due to a variety of reasons. In summary, our foundation’s typical student:

  • Never attended high school.
  • Comes from one of the poor provinces of Thailand.
  • Has parents or children to support.

They work like housewives, unskilled manufacturing, service-sector occupations that have lower than average pay wages. The women the foundation works with are in unregulated, unsafe, and unprotected industries for manipulation as cheap and easy labor.

Pratthanadee Foundation develops the potential of young women and women by dividing the working into 2 groups and 2 areas:

1. Bangkok Office

  • Women between 18-50 years who don't have the opportunity to study
  • Responsible for raising a family alone
  • Single mom
  • Work as babysitter, maid, massager, salesmanBenefits
  • Gain basic knowledge such as life skills, labor laws, employment, future planning, human rights, financial planning, etc.
  • Develop potentials such as knowing your own advantages and disadvantages, dealing with situations, personality development, confidence building
  • Learn English skills to increase work opportunities and generate income

The foundation provides English support and development of life skills through training under the name of "Better Me Program." The program creates impact through empowering underprivileged women with instilled confidence, independence, and ambition to secure safer jobs and better pay.

2. Young women

The Foundation works with students in Ubon Ratchathani, Amnat Charoen, Sisaket by training and providing knowledge about life skills for students who are graduating in grade 3 and year 6. The Foundation designs a student-centered learning program and expects that they will attain knowledge from within themselves. The program is divided into 2 activities:

  • Claim your rights: They will learn the danger that can occur when entering a large city - rights, laws, and related agencies. In addition, they will learn basic self-defense through demonstrations and practice.
  • Preparing for success: the activity to provide opportunities for self-discovery, future options, further study, the world of work, and skills needed to work that they have to prepare before graduating.

Pratthanadee Foundation has helped over 10,000 women and young women and has a total of 162 students since 2002. In 2018, we have trained 3,204 women in the northeast.
