“Klong Toey is currently the largest and oldest areas of informal dwellings in Bangkok. More than 140.000 people is estimated to live here, and most are living in sub-standard houses with few or no tenure rights or support from the government. The area has great social challenges mostly due to the lack of public services like healthcare, affordable education, sanitation and electricity. In addition to the main function as a football court and a public playground the project will work as a tool for the community to tackle some of the social issues in the area.”
