Rewards of Labour

This month we had the opportunity to attend an International School fair where the people participating in our program, Empowering the Poor with Skills Training,  had the opportunity to sell some of the plants, planter pots, key chains and bakery products that they had made.

During covid we have been training many people to make pieces of furniture, wooden planter pots, masks, bead key chains, bakery and agriculture. Finding a market to sell these wares has been a struggle as most places have been shut down due to covid there have been fewer opportunities. The day at the Regent's International school Pattaya, was very successful and our participants in the program were so thankful to receive an income for their hard work. Their self-esteem and joy also increased as they so themselves as successful in a job they have been faithful to.

Mother's Day will be August 12th in Thailand and we are planning to make 400 buckets of love to give to all the mums in the slum. The buckets will contain towels, soap, shampoo, cups, cutlery and all kinds of things used around the house. The packaging is the bucket which is also useful!

We would like to add to these 'buckets of love', some bakery items, key chains and plants of edible herbs. The cost of these additional items will be 16 000 baht or $500 US for the bakery items, beaded key chains 28 000 baht or $875 US and 8 000 baht or $250 US for the plants. This would be a huge blessing to our participants of the program and bless the mums in the slums too!

The cost of the buckets and everything to go inside is 120 000 baht or $3 750 US.

Thank you for all of your continued support.
