Bangkok is a vibrant and bustling city.

However, street crime is a growing problem, with gang crime, petty theft and drug abuse all on the rise.

Jenjira and other Young Leaders in Bangkok will tackle this by rehabilitating play spaces where young people at risk will use soccer to learn important life skills that will help them to stay away from gangs and crime.

“Football in an important tool to help the kids to focus on something positive. It will build them up for the future,” said Jenjira, 19

"I want to get kids in the community to play sports to help prevent them getting involved in crime and drugs."

Worrarit, community leader in Bangkok, said: "Football is vital because it attracts young kids who live in marginalized areas.

"They will play football rather than spending time in appropriate ways.

This project is delivered in partnership with Right To Play.
