Caritas Thailand or Episcopal Social Commission (ESC) is the coordinating organization on social work of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of Thailand. The National Catholic Commission on Migration (NCCM) is one of the many desks of the Catholic Commission for Social-Pastoral Ministries. NCCM has several projects, one of which is the training and job placement centre for migrants from Myanmar in the greater Bangkok area. The centre provides 2 services:

•    Migrants from Myanmar are given access to suitable training, increasing their market value
•    Migrants from Myanmar are linked with suitable employers, increasing their safety and income.

The training and job placement center consists of 2 components: the teaching component (learning centers and vocational training center) and the job placement component. The learning centers have been supported since December, 1996 while the vocational training center and job placements have been supported since 2009.
