People working in child protection are being equipped every day at our training base on the Thailand-Burma border.
Our team of Burmese nationals spend every day engaging lives in the slums of our border town. Their goal is to do everything they can to prevent the abuse, trafficking and exploitation of women and children. When prevention isn’t possible, they take action immediately.
“What the community team is doing drains your energy and you hear and see problems and issues, conflict, brokenness, dysfunctional family all the time.”
– Daniel Nyan, Thailand Country Director
The work they do is tough. The situations they encounter are heartbreaking. The Border Equipping Center is a place where they can come to find encouragement and support, and receive training that will help them be as effective as possible. It is also our base for all current operations, including team meetings, case discussions, as well as administration and finance.
Compasio has had access to many internationally-renowned teachers over the years, and we love sharing their expertise with other child protection organizations working in Thailand and inside Burma. Since the Center opened its doors in February 2016, we have offered training on a wide range of topics, including family-based alternative care options, case management, and basic medical care. Our long-term hope is to equip community workers who can bring real change inside Burma as well.
