FAO Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific

Migrant Children's School Artwork 2017

This year’s World Food Day at FAO’s Regional Office for Asia and the Pacific welcomed a group of students from a school in Samut Sakhon, Thailand, a province near the capital Bangkok. The students were all children of foreign migrant workers employed in the seafood processing sector. As this year’s WFD theme is about migration, the school’s head teacher, the director of a foundation supporting the school (Labour Rights Promotion Network – LPN) and the five children were invited by FAO to display their artwork about life growing up in another country, as children of migrants working in the food value chain. Her Royal Highness, Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn, a Guest of Honour at the regional World Food Day event, and who is also a UN FAO Special Ambassador for Zero Hunger, reviewed the children’s art and listened to their descriptions.
