Dear Supporters,

Sawadee ka!

Hope you all have been well. With the progressive lifting of Covid-19 restrictions in Thailand, we are pretty hopeful that we can run our project in northeast Thailand in the coming months. It will be an exciting summer again. Just a quick recap, we will be conducting our ‘Claim Your Rights’ workshop for underprivileged high school girls in Ubon Ratchathani province. The training will equip them with the life-saving skills they need to protect themselves from sexual harassment and violence. It covers the following:

  • Awareness of and Prevention of Danger: Raise awareness of a range of risks (including relationships, harassment, financial dependency, pregnancy and online grooming), tactics for avoiding the dangers and ways to deal with any incidents.
  • Basic Self-Defense: Training in basic moves, such as wrist grabs, lapel grabs, and protection on the ground.
  • Women’s Law and Rights: Raise awareness of the laws relevant to women, such as reporting domestic violence or assault to the police, and provide resources they need if they are unsure.

Our training is designed to be engaging with lots of games, multimedia resources and role playing. Not surprising, we received overwhelmingly positive feedback in past workshops. Most of our trainees found the sessions to be highly practical and interesting.

If you like to support our project, please consider gifting to our cause.

Thank you!

Dear supporters,

Happy New Year! We hope 2022 will be better for all of you.

We were, and still are, affected by the Covid pandemic which disrupted our training for at-risk high school girls in northeast Thailand. We remain hopeful that we can return to that part of the kingdom this year as the need is pressing. Violence against women and girls remains a significant problem in Thailand. According to the Office of Health Promotion Foundation (ThaiHealth), there has been a marked increase in domestic violence. According to a survey conducted in 40 districts in nine provinces, 34.6% of all households reported family violence cases in 2017. This increased to 42.2% in 2020. One of the survey findings also found that domestic violence victims often did not know where to get help. Our training on physical and mental self-defence is meant to address this need.

We’re are over $23,000 away from our target funding for this project to train 5,000 underprivileged girls. If you share our aspiration to protect at-risk high school girls in Thailand, do consider gifting to our cause. Once again, thank you and stay safe!

Best regards,

Pratthanadee Team

Dear supporters,

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!

Best regards,

Pratthanadee Team

Dear supporters,

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!

Best regards,

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.

Thank you!
