Getting ready for new women moving in

Hello! Greetings from Thailand. We are getting ready to slow down a bit after a long week of celebrations. In Thailand we just finished the Songkran holiday (the Thai New Year), which is like Easter, Christmas and all other western holidays combined. It was a lot of fun and you can describe it as well as the biggest water fight in the world. Part of the ceremony is that everybody is playing with water - it was fun!

In the last weeks we had three new women moving into our houses, one woman came only today and we are gearing up for our next three-month long Tamar Vocational Training - it will be our 20th - which will start on the 18th of May. We are hoping for 12 women to take part in this training and so far, we have five women. 

We have started to do a lot of bar outreach in order to reach the women and you can see some pictures from a small party that we held just before Songkran in this email. In the coming weeks we have another three parties planned with the biggest one with 100 women on the 9th of May. 

In Thailand, Songkran also marks the end of the tourism high season, now it becomes very hot in Thailand and so less Tourists arrive which makes it easier for the women to leave the sex industry as the income will be a lot smaller. That is the reason why we have put our outreaches mostly after Songkran and we trust that we can find 12 women that want to leave the bars behind.

In the last months one of our houses got a complete makeover. The owner agreed to pay for it - which is very nice and we even did not have to pay rent for the months that the renovation took. Now the house is ready, we moved all the furniture back in and the new women will be happy to move in there. We are also expecting a team from the Netherlands to come and to paint some of the rooms of the women in the other houses. We will see how creative the team can be.

Good, thank you again for all your support. We are thankful for being able to offer accommodation thanks to your help.

With gratitude!
