ABOUT US

SHero Thailand works to eliminate gender-based violence and de-normalize violent culture in Thailand. Since our founding in 2016, we have provided legal and emotional support to survivors of violence, led workshops on gender-based violence protection, and advocated for better access to justice for violence survivors. In addition, we target young generations and empower them to participate in our mission while combating violent culture within their community to achieve our goal. We believe that anyone can be a hero, or 'shero', who create better changes for the community, the country and the world.

Our primary strategies include:

  • Creating a safe space for the young generation to discuss solutions for violent culture within their community

  • Providing pro bono legal aid for survivors of violence

  • Documenting cases for policy advocacy to reduce the struggles of survivors to access justice 

  • Ensuring the access to justice as well as the safety and well-being of vulnerable groups

  • Empowering survivors to liberate from all forms of violence, abuse, and exploitation

What have we achieved?

From August 2016 – December 2021, SHero has worked to:

  • Providing legal, emotional, and emergency support to 349 cases of GBV

  • Assisting over 20 community-based organizations

  • Conducting workshops and training for 3,077 youth, survivors and multidisciplinary actors

  • Engaging 145 young leaders through SHero Youth Forums

  • Involving 17 youth volunteers for policy advocacy

How does SHero support the communities during the COVID-19 pandemic?

During March-July 2020, we actively called for donations to support migrant communities along the Thai-Myanmar border. With support from all directions, mostly from Twitter users, we managed to:

  • Distribute dry goods to 50 households of migrant teachers most of whom have lost their jobs -among these families, 13 have special needs children

  • Distribute face masks to 1,000 children in migrant communities

  • Raise over 17,000 THB for Shade Tree foundation and Freedom Restoration Project’s Selah Center which supports Burmese women and children who affected by DV

  • Distribute dry food and hygiene products to migrant families who were affected by DV during the pandemic
