New child moved in and training is almost finished
The street where we have 9 houses rented
Thank you very much for your continued support of the Tamar housing project. In the last three months we had no new women joining but we got some new children joining their moms in our housing.
For one of our women who comes from a small island her son had to be enrolled in school. From the island that was not possible or would involve a lot of travel time each day and would not be possible during rainy season at all and so she decided to bring him to Pattaya after the break at Songkran in April. He is now with her in our houses and is adjusting well to being in the big City. Not easy when you come from a very rural place and suddenly you move to the city, you are used to being looked after by your grandma and suddenly your Mum is back and takes care of you and you start school as well with many new children around you. But we are still very happy that he moved to Pattaya and now has time to bond with his mother, it will be good for his development, and we are very happy that we are able to offer good accommodation for him through your sponsorship.
July is the last month of this year’s five-month long Tamar Vocational and Life Training and we are very busy with this. The women taking part in this Training have learned soo much and have progressed well. For our Staff it was a huge challenge, first doing a training after Covid again and then doing a much longer training than our normal three-month long one. It has been worth it but because of it we have done some fewer outreaches than normal and therefore did not take in any new women. Once the training is finished at the end of July, we will talk with the women graduating about their next steps and will do some big outreaches to bring in more women. We are planning a big Outreach for the 12th of August, Mother’s Day – Queens Birthday, and hope to connect with many new women there to fill up our Center again.
Thank you for your help and support. Our women are very grateful for the good accommodation that they have and enjoy the quiet, restful space.
