Once again, we want to thank all of you for giving so generously to support the installation of a computer lab at The SOLD Project's Resource Center in Thailand. We also wanted to send a couple photos. : )

Thanks to your investment, dozens of students have daily access to six internet-connected computer workstations where they can research for advanced homework assignments, explore, play, create, and learn the skills they'll need to compete on university entrance exams and, later, in the workforce.

But we didn't stop there! Over the summer, we laid plans for a second classroom building at the Center and began raising funds through GlobalGiving. (Click here to read the latest update.) When complete, we'll move the computer lab into this new building to better serve the needs of our growing number of students. We're also really close to fully funding a project to replace the broken desk chairs the students currently use during class and install a water tank on the property to combat recent water shortages on site.

We're honored and encouraged by your belief and investment in SOLD's work to prevent the sexual exploitation of children. Your gifts are life-changing for these kids. "Thank you" doesn't fully convey the gratitude in our hearts, but it's all we've got. So, thank you!

With hope,

Michael Colletto
