The Journey of Urban Refugees in Bangkok and Livelihood Innovation

Ane Mei (not real name) walked thousands of kilometers from the mountains in Vietnam to Thailand as her land was forfeited by her Government. In search of a new shelter for her family, she found a temporary refuge in Bangkok. Like many other migrants here, Ane Mei’s  status in Thailand creates complex challenges in day-to-day living. Livelihood prospect through regular channel doesn’t give her and her family much promising hope. What she has to do is to re-imagine herself in order to survive with dignity, this is easier said than done. However, throughout the three-year period, how she has realigned livelihood innovation has enabled her to sustain the basic needs for her family– more importantly, the formal education of her children be preserved as a fundamental human right. Meet Ane Mei and many others in Bangkok who are trying to weave the future of livelihood for themselves and the community hosting them. ( Coming Soon)
