The objectives of this research were to study the learning process and knowledge management of the National Mother Village Fund Communities in Bangkok in terms of their learning potential and being a model for drug addiction prevention and resolution; and to study the guidelines for community development that have the potential to become a learning center for the National Mother Village Fund. Qualitative research was conducted in 6 community models in Bangkok from June to October 2018. 215 informants who are the committee members, people in communities, and network partners were participated through depth interviews and focus groups. The results were found that the learning process and knowledge management of the communities are created through: 1. Integrated (body of) knowledge on drug addiction prevention and resolution together with other (bodies of) knowledge for the life development and well-being of people in the communities; 2. Community leaders and committee members had knowledge acquisition, knowledge sharing, and self-development; 3. Observational learning and self-defensive processes for drug addicts were used for youth in the communities; 4. Supportive social networks were established to support the communities; and 5. Social capital and identity of the communities were applied to the learning process and knowledge management of the communities. Research results on the development approach to become a learning center were; being a learning center that can demonstrate real working conditions in the community; and being a learning center that provides a variety of knowledge based on the identity of each learning center.
