Child Labour Awareness Day

On June 13th, 2008, a group from International Student Volunteers (ISV) joined the MYN 5 group at a gathering to raise awareness about child labour. Together with students from around ten other schools, a big march through Mae Sai began at 1 pm. The rain stayed thankfully away and everyone arrived at the town hall where all the children gathered.

 There were various shows from theatre groups, singers and dancers, and the shows dealt with the topics human trafficking, sexual exploitation, and child labour. The main presenters of the day were asking for volunteers to enter the stage for games where they could win prizes. The event finished around 4 pm, and the MYN 5 students really enjoyed the day. It was a great opportunity to be part of the march and the entire event, raising awareness about child labour together and helping vulnerable children.
