Major rethink for dealing with street kids discussed in City Hall Meeting.

Major rethink for dealing with street kids discussed in City Hall Meeting.
      
Khun Wootisuk, Deputy Mayor of Pattaya chaired this Thursday Morning meeting at Pattaya City Hall to discuss homeless children who can often be seen on the streets of Pattaya. This brainstorming session required delegates to offer further suggestions of how to combat this problem. Previous schemes to rehabilitate the street kids have not been too successful and new ideas are needed. What did come from the meeting was that it is important to educate these children and teach them skills to allow them a good chance for successful reintegration into Society. A “boot camp” style program which has taken place in the past was not successful and many returned to the streets soon after the program was completed. Further meetings are planned on this subject over the coming months.
