Education and Identity

MAP works with migrant families to ensure they can fulfill their potential, and exercise their rights by accessing necessary services, facilities and legal documentation. In an effort to protect the rights of migrant children and migrant youth, MAP spreads information about the birth registration of children, facilitates access to Thai schools for migrant children in accordance with Thai's "Education for All" policy and participates in a national network which meets regularly, with the objective to include migrant schools in the ordinary school system. In addition, MAP seeks to educate youth about their labour rights and special protections under labour law. According to a survey published in 2012, 40 % of children of undocumented migrants did not attend any school.

In 2013, MAP assisted 107 migrant children to get Burmese and Thai birth registrations and managed to provide 36 scholarships for children to attended primary school.
