Thank you for your continued support of the work that we are doing here in Pattaya. It is time for another update again.
Please imagine you are a young girl, have just arrived in the big city and are working in a bar where you are expected to sexually service the customers. Imagine you see a lot of foreigners coming and eyeing you the whole night, sizing you up, etc.? I guess we can all agree that that is not a good situation. But this is exactly how one of the young women that has started at Tamar has felt when she arrived in Pattaya and started working in a bar. Thankfully she did not work in the bar for a long time – she met one of our Outreach teams and decided to leave the bar and come join our vocational program. You should see her now, she is a different woman, even though she is only a few weeks with us, she is relaxed, smiles, asks questions and learns and makes plans for the rest of her life. That is the change that you are making possible through your donation.
Here are some other short updates for you:
In October we had an Inner Healing Seminar from a local Couple that has a lot of experience. They spent time with our women as a group and also individual. The Seminar helped our women to have breakthroughs and to work through some Traumas from their past
We are busy working on many orders of the products that our women are making, especially the Christmas Cards. Check them out at the link below if you are interested.
During the school holidays we took the Tamar Children and the Moms to an aquarium. It was the first time for most of them and they enjoyed their time
The Tamar free English Classes have attracted several new women that are coming regular
One of our women had the desire to go deeper with her English and we were able to pay lessons for her at a local English School. She is making good progress
So much as an update from us. Thank you for staying with us!
