Tuu preparing the rooms for the new women joining
It is time for another update from us at Tamar Center. Thank you for supporting the housing project for our women. Now, that the Covid pandemic is mostly behind us, we did some deep cleaning in all of our houses and made them ready to receive new women. We started the 23rd Tamar Vocational and Life Training on the 26th of February. This training will run for five months until the end of July.
For this training, seven women left the bars in Pattaya behind to start a new life and all seven of them moved into the housing, that you help to provide for the women. In the week before the Training started, we got four new women that moved in and it got very busy. We are very thankful that we have these houses where the women have a safe place to stay and from where they can start to rebuilt their lives.
Most of the women that joined for this year’s training program came alone but some of them are planning to bring their children with them, after the Songkran holiday that will happen in the middle of April this year. One of the women, has two small children that her mother is looking after right now, but the they stay in a very remote area of Thailand without good access to schools and so the Mother decided to enroll her 5 year old son in a school in Pattaya and she will bring him and her other, 1 year old son with her after the break. We have already talked to the school and they are reserving a place for him, as applications have to be made in person and our nursery will look after her other child when it comes.
As you can see, there is always a coming and going and our rooms are getting used a bit. We also had a couple of women that came in the last months but also left again. Some where not ready to leave the bars behind, some had drug problems, and some got a lot of pressure from their families to continue in the bars and to sent big amounts of money home. We try to give each women a nice home, away from home and are grateful to have now seven new women staying with us for the training.
Thank you for making these homes possible. Through your help we always have rooms available so that women can move in within the hour of them contacting us. Thank you for your continued generosity!
