Introduction

Camillian Hospital is located in Bangkok, the capital of Thailand that ranks the second city in South East Asia with high cost of living (source: The Economist Intelligence Unit’s), and it is more expensive when the locations are considered as business areas. There are many factors that affect the low-income staff; who are paid of 6.75EUR per day, live in the hospital area, and have children of 7-18 years old, so the hospital has to do something.

Problems

  • According to the national labor regulations in 2012, the fixed lowest minimum wage of salary per day changed from 3.37EUR to 6.75EUR. It has made the Camillian Hospital to cut “over time” in order to control the expenses.
  • The majority of low-income staffs are single parents and from the provinces. They have to rent rooms for their children to live with in Bangkok or leave the children with grandparents in countryside
  • According to the recruitment laws of Thailand, children under 15 years old are not allowed to do part-time jobs, which means only the parents can take care all the expenses.
  • Some of them have to leave or skip going to school because they do not have enough money for transportations, or afford some items and stationaries for studying.
  • According to the parents’ background, the children may have less inspirations to study and become careless to their future.

Objectives

  • To support the staffs’ children who maintain good behaviors and good results from the exams to have a chance to study more.
