FIGHTING FOR CHILDREN'S
RIGHTS THROUGHOUT THE
WHOLE OF THAI SOCIETY
Childline Thailand Foundation has been fundamental in the development of child protection issues and will continue advocating for child rights issues through all levels of Thai society.
THE ADVOCACY EFFORTS OF CHILDLINE THAILAND FOUNDATION ARE BASED ON THE UNITED NATIONS' CONVENTION ON THE RIGHTS OF THE CHILD (CRC)
This comprehensive document stipulates all of the intrinsic freedoms that should be granted to children, independent of their abilities, physical appearance, background or spiritual beliefs. The Thai Government signed the CRC in 1992. It took a number of years following the ratification for necessary action to be taken in Thailand but a very important piece of legislation materialized based on the CRC – The Child Protection Act of 2003. Since then it has formed the foundation for building a whole new system and standard for child protection in Thailand.
CHILDLINE THAILAND FOUNDATION HAS TAKEN A VERY ACTIVE ROLE IN ESTABLISHING THIS NEW SYSTEM
Chairman of Childline Thailand Foundation, Momrajwongse Supinda Chakraband is one of twelve members on the National Child Protection Committee of Thailand – the highest governing body on child protection issues.
