We have been unable to conduct workshops in UbonRatchathani because of the ongoing Covid-19 crisis. We had planned to train high school girls in protecting themselves against sexual abuse and harassment some months ago. But with the closure of schools for safety reasons, it has been impossible to do so. The authorities have indicated that a November reopening of schools is on the cards, provided at least 85 percent of students and teachers are vaccinated. We are therefore keeping our fingers crossed that we can return to the northeastern province soon.
To date, we have received $2,287 to run the training in Ubon; we thank you for the support. Hopefully we can attract more to support our cause of helping at-risk high school girls. We will keep you updated when we are able to conduct the training again. Once again, thank you and stay safe!

We had initially planned to run workshops in early June in UbonRatchathani to train high school girls in protecting themselves against sexual abuse and harassment. But we have to put that on hold for a bit as the Thai Ministry of Education has delayed the start of the new academic year to 14 June from 1 June. The move was precipitated by the coronavirus outbreak. The delay will also give the government time to vaccinate teachers before the term begins. Going by the current state of things, it looks like we are likely to kick off our training in mid-July instead.
To date, we have received $2,287 to run the training in the northeastern province, far from our goal of $26,000 for the year. We will have a greater impact on at-risk high school girls if you can help us reach this target amount by encouraging like-minded individuals such as yourselves to support our cause. Once again, thank you and stay safe!

Back In Ubon In June, Hopefully!

Sawadee pee mai or Happy New Year!
Just when we thought we were almost out of the woods on the pandemic, a second wave of Covid-19 infections surfaced in the kingdom. Our work was upended last year and continues to be for safety reasons. Hopefully, we will be able to run our project In June to arm at-risk high school girls with skills to protect themselves against sexual abuse and harassment.
So far, we have only received about $170, which is not enough to run our ‘Better Me’ project targeted at training 5,000 underprivileged girls in Ubon Ratchathani. We still have a long way to go to be able to fund the training for this number of girls. We have about four to five months to make this happen, but only if you help us. Our role has become even more critical at this juncture as many lives have been decimated by the impact of the coronavirus pandemic. You can help us maintain a lifeline to these girls by including us in your gifting in 2021, or forwarding this appeal to your network of friends.
