Thailand

Mary’s Meals supports Myanma children of migrant workers living in Thailand. These children and their families are often exploited for cheap manual labour and are trapped in dire poverty.

Our meals act as an incentive for families to send their children to school, rather than sending them to work in casual labour jobs that can be dangerous and prevent them from gaining an education.

Our work

We serve meals to Myanma migrant children in four schools outside Bangkok.

Of the 2.5 million Myanma migrants living in Thailand, the official number of children is around 200,000, although in reality it may be far more. Of these 200,000, less than a quarter have regular access to education.
