Greetings from Pattaya!
Today I am very happy to report some good news to you. We have just started the 21st Tamar Vocational and Life Training. Seven women have left the bars and the work in the sex industry of Pattaya and decided to come and join our three-month long Training.
On the 14th of May we had the first ever Tamar Open Day where we invited the women to come and have a look at Tamar Center and what we offer. 23 women came for the whole day. We had games for them, good food, an introduction to the Tamar Training and they also got the opportunity to have try out the four different jobs (Hairdresser, Baking, Sewing, Cooking) that we offer in the training for 30 minutes each. It was a great day and through that Open Day three women joined us directly.
The women also took the opportunity to have a look at the accommodations that we offer them, and they really checked us out. It was nice to see that they did and that they liked what we offered them. We are very grateful to your support for making it possible that we can have accommodations ready for the women to move into directly. In the weeks before the Training started, we also did some improvements to our houses, some painting, purchased new fans and other small things to make it as welcoming as possible!
We were really happy with the result and on Friday we than had the Opening Ceremony for the Tamar Training program. It was another evening of fun, games from the students from last year, food and fun and now the women are already deep in the Training. They finished the first week and you can see the pictures attached they have a good time.
