YOUNG ADULTS ENTERPRENEURIAL TRAINING
HIGHLANDER & BURMESE MIGRANTS
Challenges: Most rural people seek employment in Thailand's capital Bangkok. The lifestyle change from rural living to the 10 million people city of Bangkok is too much for most villagers. As a result, rural people fall easy victim to the unscrupulous human exploiter or harmful city vice.
Solution: The Avoda Foundation creates and mentors job creation programs in Bangkok. Newly arriving villagers stay in a supportive community and receive job training and daily counseling.
As of 2022, seven teens are studying and working in Avoda's first job training program in the capital of Bangkok.
