Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2002
This description of Rakawin Leechanavanichpan's work was prepared when Rakawin Leechanavanichpan was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2002.
Recognizing that the needs of informal laborers–including home-based subcontract laborers and Thailand's self-employed–were not being met by labor unions, current labor law, or civil society groups, Rakawin Leechanavanichpan launched HomeNet Thailand, an effort that combines the advocacy of trade unions with the capacity building of direct service organizations to create a voice for Thailand's homeworkers.
