Individual citizenship support
The citizenship program provides assistance for stateless and displaced people along the Thai-Burma border to obtain their own citizenship. Even if they are born in Thailand, citizenship is not automatically granted. With citizenship comes greater opportunity and more rights: access to healthcare, education, unrestricted travel within Thailand; and avoids exploitation in the work force.
