Women and girls reached each year
Increased Self Confidence
Women and girls from poor backgrounds face a difficult life in Thailand.
Outside of Bangkok, the country has areas of great poverty, with few opportunities for work outside of agriculture. Young, undereducated women become their family’s ticket to success – whether they like it or not – and face pressure to move to Bangkok and find work. Often they need to support their entire extended family on one salary.
Whether they end up in sex work, manual labor or domestic houses, their situation is the same. They hold the burden of keeping their entire family fed when they have no real skills to compete on the Bangkok job market.
We provide free life-changing training and mentoring in Bangkok and Ubon Ratchathani in the Northeast of Thailand.
Our students hope to make something of their lives – despite having previously been denied any real opportunity to do so. Some of our students work in the sex industry, and many more grapple with the decision of whether or not to do so themselves. Many of them see marriage to a foreign man as the only means of securing their future. For them it is not a matter of choice, but of survival for themselves and their families.
We provide an alternative – a place for self-assessment and learning, and the first step to a brighter future.
