“Society judges me from my appearance. They discriminate me by my race and skin color, my rights are neglected.”

“I feel that society is unacceptable for who I am. They judge me with social norms, created social standards. I cannot be myself.”

“We want a safe society where we won’t be discriminated, filled with humanity and equality.”

“Stop bullying others by claiming rights to expression.”

Equality – Will human rights take place?


Bullying is the use of power to intimidate or abuse others while the bully is not responsible for the action. Nowadays in Thailand, bullying is not an illegal act, and there are no penalties. Many adults typically tease children about their differences. Adults have become role models in unaccepting children's differences. Many children have the perception that such behavior is "acceptable" or "desirable", which is very dangerous. Adults’ actions shape children’s behavior in abusing power without taking responsibility for it, leading children to believe that society does not value differences. Resulting in imitating power abuse creating a “cycle” of bullying in society.

I have been ECPAT's Youth leader for almost 6 years. They've trained me with a lot of important skills. That made me change my attitude, positive thinking, cognitive development, and good leadership.
I decided to participate in this project as a young leader, because it is a channel of communication to share knowledge with others, exchange experiences, and also build beneficial things together to prevent sexual exploitation of children. I believe the voice of youths can be changed.
