I- Organization Background

Established in 2002, Baan Dek Foundation is a not-for-profit, non-governmental organization with the mission to provide access to essential education, health, and child protection services to disadvantaged children and families living in construction site camps. Through field projects and advocacy activities, BDF aims to improve access to services for the estimated 60,000 children connected to the construction sector in Thailand. 

 

As part of the systemic impact program work, BDF has launched the Building Social Impact (BSI) Initiative, a private sector engagement program to work in partnership with construction and real estate companies to improve the living conditions and access to public services for workers and children living in construction site camps across Thailand. Under this program, BDF has developed a Framework for Action, a set of 12 practical recommendations for companies to undertake in their construction site camps and a Toolkit for conducting self-assessments and developing action plans. 

 

II- Consultancy Background

The construction sector in Thailand is driven primarily by migrant labour; migrant workers arrive in Thailand often as couples or families or start families during their time in Thailand. Within the construction site camps where migrant families reside, children are particularly vulnerable. There is often a low awareness of child protection, education and health services among migrant families, or reluctance and challenges to use them due to a lack of documentation, language skills or knowledge on how to access those services. 

 

BDF, via the BSI Initiative, equips companies with tools and training to improve living conditions and essential service access for workers and their children in construction camps. To strengthen our support, BDF plans to compile a comprehensive directory of potential service providers, encompassing both private and public entities, capable of meeting the needs of construction workers and their children. This directory will be available to companies seeking to enhance their social impact by connecting with external services from CSOs or relevant public service providers for the benefit of workers and children.

 

As such, the ‘mapping of service providers’ will be offered to companies, as part of the BSI Toolkit, to support them in their implementation of the framework. Companies can use this mapping as a reference guide to identify local service providers and formalize their relationships to smoothen the processes involved in accessing services for camp residents in the aforementioned provinces..

 

III- Scope of Work

The consultant is to identify and learn more about the existing services at different levels of intervention across the health, welfare and education-related needs of migrants and children in construction camps.
