The SOLD Project

We believe that education is the key to preventing child exploitation. Our mission is to prevent child prostitution through culturally relevant programs for vulnerable children and to share their stories to empower creative, compassionate people to act. Beginning as a documentary, we are now a grassroots non-profit offering scholarship and resources to at-risk children in rural northern Thailand. Our work is two-fold: prevention through education in Thailand and raising global awareness.

We have walls!

Second Classroom With Walls!

Dear friends,

We made so much financial progress toward our goal at the end of 2013 and beginning of 2014! Thanks to grants from Cultural Care Au Pair, LUSH Cosmetics, and all of your individual contributions we have nearly reached our target. Not to mention that because of your support, we've been able to make some serious headway on the classroom progress. We've finished the bottom level walls and are working on the second level. Once those are complete, we'll begin to work on the roof! 

We've been saying all along how needed this second classroom is. So much so that we're already using the first level of this building! We recently hosted an art camp with 20 volunteers and 75 students in the shade of the first level of this new classroom (see photo attached). Our staff are also very excited to each have a desk (currently eight staff are sharing two desks and a couch) in their new second level office! 

Thank you so much for each contributing to this much needed classroom (and office!) and helping to make it a reality. We are very grateful!

With hope,

Rachel Goble & The SOLD Project Team

Today is Giving Tuesday!

Dear Friends,

Black Friday and Cyber Monday have a new friend: Happy Giving Tuesday! When I met with Giving Tuesday's Boaz Paldi last night he shared "I think we need a day of celebrating giving. It's a day that we can all come together and think about what we're giving, how we're doing it, and the fact that we can do it all over the world and in different ways. I think it's important to have this day: we have so many other days we celebrate, and we don't have a day of giving."


Will you join us in #GivingTuesday? The SOLD Project is so close to reaching our goal to build a second classroom at our Resource Center in Thailand. When you donate to build the classroom, 100% of the funds go directly to the building project. To make it even better, Global Giving is offering to print, download or mail a card if you choose to make the gift in someone's honor. This card, coupled with some of our new merchandise or student art makes the perfect holiday gift. 

In other news, The FREEDOM Project Prevention Programs continue to excel. We recently hosted our Family Camp where eight of our scholarship students and their families gathered together to set goals and learn about conflict resolution. It was a beautiful time of bonding and communication. It's your continued support of The FREEDOM Project that make programs like these possible, so thank you! 

With gratitude,

Rachel Goble & The SOLD Project team

Also, we have great news! Not only are we close to completing the floors for the Second Classroom but just yesterday we got word that LUSH Beauty Products is granting us $7,100 to build the walls and ceilings for both levels! To top it off, one of our donors was so excited by the LUSH grant that he gave another $5,000! This leaves us with $12,900 left to complete the classroom. We are so excited to be nearing our goal! Thank you for all of your support in making this second classroom possible.

Happy #GivingTuesday and Happy Holidays!

With gratitude,

Rachel Goble & The SOLD Project team
