Explore! Klong Toey Slums Of Bangkok (Joined) (Wed (except public holidays and end of semester),08.30-12.00)
Asian Trails offers a new Explore tour to venture on a memorable journey to the hidden slum world of Bangkok. The Klong Toey area is the oldest and largest slum in Bangkok, having been around for about 50 years.
The slum communities are made up of a majority of rural migrants from Northeast Thailand who came to Bangkok for job opportunities. As you walk through the narrow alleyways you will discover that most now have the basic amenities such as electricity, gas and some modern conveniences.
Visit the Duang Prateep Foundation whose primary focus has been to help the urban poor, with a special emphasis on community development and on giving the best possible opportunities to the children of the area. Here you will receive an overview of the project and their goals for the future.
Interact with the children aged up to 6 years old, during their morning classes which follow the Montessori style of learning and form a bond with them during their hands-on lessons. Before leaving, you will have the opportunity to help the teachers serve the children their lunch after which it will be time to bid farewell to your new found friends.
