Sakaeo shelter for children and families

A. Problem Analysis

 1. What was the problem before the implementation of the initiative?
Sakaeo is located in eastern part of Thailand which is close to the border of Cambodia. Hence the transit points are along the borders between Thailand and neighboring countries. There are an estimated 556,922 people living in Sakaeo. Sakaeo has been established for 4,000 years. There are some Cambodians who migrate to Thailand seeking jobs. It is clear that Sakaeo has faced the problem of human trafficking as well as other social problems. Human trafficking is a global problem and one of the world's most shameful crimes, affecting the lives of millions of people around the world and robbing them of their dignity. Sex trafficking, sex tourism, trafficking for labor and servitude, and commercial sexual exploitation are all part of a growing global phenomenon of modern slavery. The exploitation of human beings for profit takes many forms, including sexual exploitation, forced labour, child trafficking and domestic servitude. Traffickers can be any age, gender, ethnicity or nationality. In many cases traffickers are related to or are close acquaintances of those they are exploiting. Many trafficking victims from many countries migrate willingly to Thailand seeking employment, often with the assistance of relatives and community members or informal recruitment networks. Registered and unregistered labor brokers serve as intermediaries between job-seekers and employers; some collaborate with employers and, at times, with corrupt law enforcement officials. Some migrant workers incur exorbitant debts, both in Thailand and in countries of origin, to obtain employment and are subjected to debt bondage. Traffickers, including labor brokers of Thai and foreign nationalities, bring foreign victims into Thailand. Brokers and employers reportedly continue to confiscate identification documents. The victims of human trafficking always face the problem because they are assisted in the wrong way or they may not know how to request some help from the government. The number of the victims of human trafficking is not available because they migrate illegally. Not only the problem of human trafficking we face, but also a social problem. Nowadays, there are casinos settled in Cambodia. This in turn leads to crime and social problems. The project named “One Home for Development on Assisting Victims of Trafficking” of Sakaeo Shelter for Children and Family has been launched for assisting victims of human trafficking including children and women. This project has been activated in Sakaeo for a long time by supporting all related sectors in Sakaeo. Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) also accepts this project.

B. Strategic Approach

 2. What was the solution?
Sakaeo Shelter for Children and Family works with stakeholders such as government organizations (Office of social development and human security in provincial level, Office for the Destitute, local police, provincial employment office and non-government organization including private sector. We integrate work in order to discuss about the problems and set the solution for the discussed problems. We work with many organizations in Thailand, Cambodian organizations and a Japanese organization which is called Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA). At first we are faced with challenges but we can cope with them with cooperation from other said sectors. Finally, Thailand government raises the problem of human trafficking into its National Agenda. Hence, it is easier to work with other sectors. Sakaeo Shelter for Children and Family uses four key actions in solving the problem of human trafficking. There are Capacity Building, Intelligence Exchange, Campaign, and Remedy and Rehabilitation. ‘Capacity Building’ is for the better victims screening process of multidisciplinary team officials. Well-trained, designated mobile multidisciplinary teams were very effective in interviewing potential victims and could be good models to be used in other areas. We use ‘Intelligence Exchange’ in reviewing law about human trafficking in order to solve the problem regularly. For the ‘Campaign’ aspect, we try to assist the ones who will be a victim of human trafficking escape or avoid being a victim of human trafficking. For ‘Remedy and Rehabilitation’ we are changing the attitude of people towards human trafficked victims and the stigma of human trafficking. If the negative stigmas can be addressed people can live in the society happily after they have faced the problem of human trafficking.

 3. How did the initiative solve the problem and improve people’s lives?
1 Identify victims Identify victims and where are they from. For example, Sakaeo is a source, destination, or transit area for men, women, and children subjected to human trafficking. 2 Grade the result and action in combatting human trafficking Grade the result of actions in combatting human trafficking into 3 tiers. Tier 1 is for the actions which fully meet the Trafficking Victims Protection Act’s (TVPA) minimum standards. TIER 2 is for the actions which do not fully comply with the TVPA's minimum. Tier 3 is for the actions which do not fully meet the minimum standards and are not making significant efforts to do so. 3 Protection We use alternative methods to protect against human trafficking. Firstly, try to register labors in our areas. Secondly, those identified as victims of trafficking are placed in a shelter where physical and mental health is assessed. They are offered medical, legal, psychosocial, recreational and educational services, as well as livelihood training. They are also prepared for repatriation and reintegration, after which there is an evaluation of their reintegration. Third, try to integrate related organizations in order to take care of victims when they are sent back to their home country. Fourthly, try to use volunteer network in order to take care of victims before they will be sent back to their, home communities. Interpretation services for potential victims remain limited, and poor understanding of trafficking indicators by front-line officers, as well as the lack of private spaces to screen potential victims, may have led to many trafficking victims not being identified. 4 Assisting victims Demonstrate some progress in its law enforcement efforts to combat human. Make a priority that the workers, who experienced the exploitation are deemed "victims" and not “criminals”. 5 Promoting the process of hiring legally We try to promote being hired legally. 6 public relations We try to a raise awareness of and to call for public cooperation in the fight against human trafficking with the core objectives of human rights, gender equality, and safe migration. Also, acknowledge people about one stop service crisis center (OCSC 1300) which is 24 hours service for assisting victims of trafficking. The One Stop Crisis Centre (OSCC) includes a hotline managed by trained staff, a network of 22,000 crisis centres around the country and 1,300 mobile units to access communities nationwide. The crisis centers will receive complaints, transfer cases and coordinate responses between Government agencies. This service will assist victims of trafficking by integrating all related sectors under the campaign “One Home for Development on Assisting Victims of Trafficking”.

C. Execution and Implementation

 4. In which ways is the initiative creative and innovative?
Integrated management is the key area we focus. Integrated management is a socially defined concept that is interpreted and understood in a variety of ways. Integrated management system is to integrate all of an organization’s systems and processes in to one complete framework, enabling an organization to work as a single unit with unified objectives. We also concern about benefits of public people. Our strategy is setting think tank teams, to check or evaluate our action. Importantly, we use reliable and updated data to be a base of our action plan. Also, in our organization it needs to be an accountable workplace. We believe that accountability has a clear link to higher work performance. It’s also known to improve creativity and innovation. We try to give benefits to our employees who work efficiently. Awakening Organization is also our theme. We try to acknowledge our team workers such as Training of employees. We believe that training is the process of enhancing the skills, capabilities and knowledge of employees for doing a particular job.

 5. Who implemented the initiative and what is the size of the population affected by this initiative?
Sakaeo Shelter for Children and Family under Department of Children and Youth is the main sector. Director-General and Deputy Director-General of Department of Children and Youth are our consultants and main persons to support our work about human trafficking. Sakaeo Shelter for Children and Family also cooperates with all related sectors both government and non-government such as Office of social development and human security in provincial level, for the Destitute, local police, provincial employment office, Ministry of Education, Royal Thai Police, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of Tourism and Sports, Department of Consular Affairs, Thai embassies and diplomatic missions abroad. The population in Sakaeo is about 556,922 people. Others are people who migrate from other countries. From the statistics, in 2016, there are 381 victims of human trafficking. There are 93 men and 288 women. There are 212 people from Thailand, 69 people from Loas PDR, other 69 people from Myanmar, 24 people from Cambodia and 7 people from other countries. Most victims of Trafficking for Sexual Exploitation are Thai. Most victims from Trafficking for Forced Labour are Myanmar. Some victims especially Cambodian are forced into street begging. Notably, most victims are under 18 years old. Most victims of human trafficking migrate to Thailand by helping from brokers whom the victims have never known before. The victims of human trafficking will be sent to other provinces to be the labours. In addition to Thai victims of trafficking, some of these migrant workers are also believed to be forced, coerced, or defrauded into labor or sex trafficking. There are reports that some of those labor trafficking victims are exploited in commercial fishing, fishing-related industries, factories, and domestic work. Some migrant workers who are trafficking victims are deported without proper screening due to inconsistencies in the victim identification process. Some victims are forced into street begging. Sex trafficking remains a significant problem in Thailand’s extensive sex trade—often in business establishments that cater to demand for commercial sex. Thailand is a source, destination, and transit country for men, women, and children subjected to forced labor and sex trafficking. For Thai people, they are the victims in sex trafficking working in both Thailand and other countries. Displaced persons, minorities and other marginalized groups are vulnerable to human trafficking. Sex trafficking victims are typically found in sex clubs, basement brothels, remote massage parlors and street prostitution.
