Chiang Mai, Thailand
In Thailand, we have a partnership with the Ministry of Justice, The Department of Corrections, Chiang Mai Women’s Correctional Institution and the NGO ‘Kamlanjai Project’ under HRH Princess Bajrakitiyabha Mahidol, who is a UNODC Goodwill Ambassador for Southeast Asia.This partnership allows us to pioneer a new model for employment inside of the prison.
Thanakon is our local production manager and he runs the production on a daily basis. He coordinates the production, he buys additional materials and makes sure the team is involved in all processes. Currently, we have 14 employees who have been with us since our opening. They work 6 hours per day, five days per week. We are in contact with Thanakon every day to stay updated on every step and with everyone from our team.
