CP Foods partners with FLEC to eradicate Child Labour from Seafood Industry

Charoen Pokphand Foods PCL. (CP Foods) has joined forces with Songkhla's Fishermen Life Enhancement Center (FLEC) to promote education among migrant children as a sustainable solution for eliminating child labour in Thailand.


Nattaya Petcharat, FLEC's committee, says this effort is also in line with the Thai government to provide the children living in Thailand with the equal educational rights as local students.


She explains that FLEC Center is a collaboration between seven partners from various sectors with a mutual goal that is to tackle and prevent all kinds of labour abuse in Thai seafood and proactively protect migrant workers as well as their family from exploitation and abuse. One of the sustainable solutions is giving them an access to education.


"Learning Room for Children and Migrant Workers Families" program is part of FLEC Center to offer basic education for migrant children and leading them to formal school in the province. Since 2016, a total of 240 migrant children have access to formal education in Thailand. More than 90 percent of them have passed the basic education assessment criteria, and 45 of them were enrolled in the Municipal School 2, in Songkhla Province, together with Thai students.


The FLEC Learning Center opens every day, even during the Covid-19 crisis to look after the children while their parents are working at the port. During the pandemic, the learning center also organized a rotating group of students to study and assign homework, offering uninterrupted learning.


Patimoh Hawae, teacher at FLEC Center, says this year, a total of 42 children, ranging between 4-15 years old, have joined the class at the FLEC Center. Nattaya said that the Center provides suitable courses for their ages.  For example, Kindergarten class aims at encouraging independence and Love of Learning. Meanwhile, Children in Elementary school and higher levels are learning core subjects including Thai, Mathematics, and English. Moreover, there are Khmer reading and writing classes for Cambodian students. 


“Children of migrant workers at the FLEC Center have learnt Thai. They are more assertive, talk to people outside their families, and more importantly, children can take care of themselves while their parents go to work,  she said, adding that "Thanks to the preparation class, 15 migrant students at FLEC are able to enter public schools this year.


FLEC Center is a joint human rights project between seven organizations, including the Fish Marketing Organization; Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives; Department of Labour Protection and Welfare; Family Planning Association of Thailand; Stella Maris Centre Songkhla,  PTT Global Chemical Public Company Limited, G.E.P.P. SA-ARD Co.,Ltd and Charoen Pokphand Foods (CP Foods), targeting to tackle an abuse of human rights in the fishery industry and improve well-being of those who work in the seafood industry.
