Outreaches, Outing and much more

Hello everyone!

We, from Tamar Center, would like to say a big thank you to you for your support for our work over the last months and years! We are extremely grateful for your support and help and would not have been able to do our work without you!

We started the year with a day of reflection with our whole team and some goal setting for the year and then we got into two very busy months. In January and February, we had different teams visiting us, had many extra outreaches and activities for the women still working in the bars, we had a big party in a local Hotel for the women and our biggest Valentine’s Day Outreach yet. It was a very busy but also good time. The many visitors stayed in our Guesthouse, enjoyed the Tamar Restaurant and Bakery, and took many of the products that the women made home with them. In that way, everyone in Tamar was kept busy and able to practice their learned skills!

It was nice during the Valentine’s Day outreach to reach out to women in areas of Pattaya that we normally do not visit. We concentrated on some of the smaller side streets and discovered many new bars that had opened. Many of the women had only been a short time in Pattaya and many were not happy with their situation. We were able to encourage them with our gift bags and invited them to our free English Classes. A number of women came after the outreach and are now attending the classes which is very nice.

We also had one of our former women return to Tamar Center. She had been working in Bangkok for the last months and the job there did not pay her enough and so she asked if she could return. She is now working again in our Hair Salon and the Hair Salon has seen many new customers due to her skills and she fits well back into the team!

We also just had a great outing with everyone at Tamar. Here in Thailand the man school holidays started in the middle of March and will go on until the middle of May. For this reason, we took all the children and everyone else at Tamar to a Fun Park in Bangkok for the day. We had received very discounted tickets including a lunch buffet and so were able to afford this special treat for everyone. There was much excitement and some of the women were more excited than the kids – but we all had a great day of fun!

In March also two new women joined Tamar and moved in with us, we now already have six women staying with us that will join the next three-month long Tamar vocational and life training that will start on the 3rd of May, and we are hoping for a couple more till then.

Thank you again for your help and support – it has been helpful in keeping us going and enabled us to offer a new life to the bargirls of Pattaya!

Thank you!

For the Tamar Family
