WOMEN PROTECTION AND EMPOWERMENT
The first step towards empowerment and improving the living conditions is to enhance the self-esteem and self-image making women less vulnerable. Restored confidence and pride are essentials towards sustainable livelihood and the ability to participate in social life freely, living with dignity, and recognizing the real value of life.
The atmosphere of mutual trust is a core to help women to receive our services and develop the lost ability to establish trust relationships. Through our services, we have gained the trust of the community and have been able to reach out to women to change their lives for good.
We are able to assist those seeking to improve their present life situation and reach out to the women because they trust us. Building this 'trusting relationship' is very important because many of the women have been deceived and have difficulty trusting anyone. Through our services, we have gained their trust and we have been able to reach out to them in a positive way

RAISE OF AWARENESS
Gender equality | Having no access to the knowledge of basic rights and due to the gender inequality issues, women became vulnerable to abuse at criminal and slum areas, at work, and even at home entering unhealthy relationships and being exploited. The program empowers women by teaching them gender equality right.
Trafficking | Thailand is one of the receiving and sending countries for trafficking. This is a profound human rights abuse and women are particularly vulnerable due to social and economic inequalities and lack of educational opportunities they face. We make women aware of this abuse and help those who have managed to escape from it.
