Goodwill Group Foundation

The mission of Goodwill Group is to improve the quality of life of young Thai women via skills training and career services. The underlying philosophy of our organization is best found in the words of Ruby Manikan, "If you educate a man you educate a person, but if you educate a woman you educate a family."

Back to school
Back to school

After a long summer break, we were eager to resume our training workshops in the local schools.  In June we conducted our "Preparing for Success" and "Prevention of Danger" workshops for a new batch of students and trained 130 young girls.  We also conducted the "Preparing for Success" workshop with great success to 83 young women from the Women and Youth Leadership Community group.  We look forward to conducting more of our workshops with this community group!

Our staff members also spent some time networking at an event co-sponsored by the Alliance Anti Traffic Organization (AAT) and the Ministry of Social Development and Human Security.  It is our goal to build future partnerships with these organizations in order to expand our services in the Ubon province.  Networking and building partnerships are an important step to growing and strengthening our presence in Ubon.

As always, we are so grateful for your continued support and we look forward to updating you more in our next Project Report!

From all of us at Goodwill, Thank You!

Schools in Thailand celebrate their summer break during the months of March and April, and as a result, our office took the last couple of months to focus on networking and building relationships within the community.  With the type of outreach work Goodwill does in the Ubon Ratchathani province, it is essential that we regularly meet with schools, local leaders, and community members.  Meeting with the community always encourages us to continue doing what we do, but also inspires us to look forward as we expand our programs and help bring more sustainable impact to the women in Ubon.

In hopes of strengthening our relationship with the local government we also met with local leaders to demonstrate the type of workshops we do for women in their community.  This opportunity allowed us to gauge interest in our trainings, but also helped to build up their trust in us as an organization.

School is back in session so we look forward to sharing more with you in our next Project Report.  As always, we are so grateful for your continued support!

March 2014 Report

Technical College Open House
Technical College Open House

It's hard to believe that we are already in our 3rd month of the new year!  Since our last report we have continued our ongoing "Preparing for Success" workshop, started a new training workshop, and attended various community events.

In the last 3 months we conducted 6 "Preparing for Success" workshops and trained approximately 260 young girls.  Our newest workshop trains young girls on the potential safety risks that surround them on a daily basis and how they can avoid finding themselves in dangerous situations.  So far, we conducted 7 of these workshops and trained over 600 girls.

In January we celebrated Thailand's national "Children's Day" with the Ubon Ratchathani municipality.  At this event we set up an information booth where the children played games and the women had a chance to learn more about who we are and what we do.  It was a tremendous success!  In February, we participated in the Open House event at one of the local technical colleges.  During this event we were able to meet many young women who we hope to further train in Ubon to find safe and stable jobs in their future.

As always, we are so grateful for your continued support, and we look forward to sharing more with you in our next Project Report.

From all of us at Goodwill,

Thank You!
