A Second Chance in Bangkok's Slums
In the shadow of Thailand's rapid economic growth is the district of Klong Toey, one of nearly 2,000 slums in Bangkok. Klong Toey is home to more than 80,000 residents, whose average income is half that of the typical Bangkok household. Some make their living as resellers, supporting their families by purchasing from local shops and selling elsewhere. While they manage to make ends meet, improving their lives enough to transcend this daily cycle is a daunting task.
