The Child Protection and Development Program is Human Help Network’s response to an increasing number of street children in Pattaya and the exploitation and poverty that many of these children suffer from. The Child Protection and Development Center (CPDC) is a central component of this program. The Center aims to provide street children with protection, education and prospects for the future.
In recent years the CPDC project has expanded and is today surrounded by a network of integrated outreach, prevention and protection facilities. To effectively combat child trafficking as well as commercial and sexual exploitation of children in and around Pattaya the HHN Foundation Thailand has set up a four step process model. The four steps are Outreach Work; a Drop-in Center; the CPDC, as a permanent residence; and finally a Prevention- and Daycare Program.
