Project / She Has A Name – Thailand

About This Project

The She Has A Name project was inspired by the Canadian Tour of Andrew Kooman’s play of the same name and will assist the Home of New Beginnings in Bangkok, Thailand.

Established in February 2006, Beginnings is a holistic relational outreach that seeks to address the spiritual, emotional, physical and educational needs of women and children who desire to leave the sex trade or have been trafficked. Its focus is creating family and education. Beginnings creates a healing environment through counsel, education, life skills, parenting skills, and spiritual well-being so that those leaving Beginnings can become contributing, healthy, financially sustainable members of society.

Beginnings Quick Facts:

  • 12 residents
  • Age range 15 – 24
  • 3 Residents in University and 6 in High school
    • 8 Residents have graduated from University
    • 6 Residents are in High School
    • The other residents are in a vocational program or have just completed their University credits and are looking for work.
  • Home of New Beginnings is hiring two former residents – one in textile design who will manage their vocational room and one in human resources who will work part-time with them doing outreach back in the bars while also working in an office in the human resources department.

Project Two – Supply food for a year. It costs the home about $1,200 – $1,500 per month to feed their house of 12 residents and three staff members. Raising a minimum of $15,000 would help assure adequate funding for the year.

Project Three – Provide tutoring. Most of the University and High School girls are on scholarships. However, those scholarships do not include tutoring. The girls are in need of tutoring because they have attended rural schools with inadequate instruction and materials.  When they arrive at Home of New Beginnings they are behind in their studies.

Project Four – Staff salaries. Funding is also needed for the salaries of three staff members which would be about $1,500 a month. Starting salary, at the Home, is about $450 a month.
