School is back in session and our Goodwill Ubon office has been busy at work conducting workshops at various village schools. Since our last update in June we have already conducted over 30 workshops reaching out to over 2,500 girls on how to safely migrate from rural to urban areas, one of our most popular workshops in the Ubon province. This workshop provides information on how to find a good and safe job, advice on how to deal with potential hazards of living and working in Bangkok, and contact information for government ministries, public services and NGOs that they can reach out to for assistance in Bangkok. Also, the workshop provides information on how to attend an open university, which allows students to study and work at the same time.
In other amazing news, Goodwill Ubon just celebrated our two year anniversary at the end of August. Since our inception in August 2011, we conducted more than 100 workshops and trained almost 6,000 girls in village schools. We have also found that out of the girls who participated in the workshop who failed the pre-test questionnaire, more than 90% passed the post-test questionnaire after completing the workshop. This is amazing impact we are proud of, and we are certain that we have much more to look forward to in this upcoming 3rd year. Furthermore, the demand for our services continues to grow and we are always in need of your support!
We would like to thank YOU and all our supporters for your generous contributions and for walking alongside us for the last 2 years. We look forward to conducting more activities and achieving even more success, and that success is not possible without your help!
From all of us at Goodwill, Thank You!
