In Thailand Mother day is on the 12th of August - the birthday of the Queen Mother. We want to go out on this day and distribute 300 gift bags to the mothers that are working the sex industry in Pattaya. They are far away from their children, often they only see them once a year. We plan to bless them with a mothers giftpack including cookies, beauty products, vouchers for our Hair Salon and much more. Each pack will also include an invite to the Tamar Vocational Training and free English Class.
We want to encourage the mothers that are alone working in the bars during Mother day. We want to show them that there are ways to be with their children and make a good income.
The bags will bring them some joy, will connect them to the free English classes and vocational training that we offer and will give them a Voucher for a beauty treatment. But most importantly it will show them that they are valued and not forgotten on a day where the whole country spends time with their children.
Our goal for the women is to leave Pattaya, maybe return to their families and to have a normal life outside of the sex industry. We will train the women job skills and help them to find employment or help them to start their own small business so that they can provide for themselves and their children. Also, when they return to their families, they will help to prevent other young girls and boys to start a work in the sex industry.
