I’m on the beautiful, sprawling campus at Andrews University in Berrien Springs, Michigan today to speak in the Thursday Live Series. I’m grateful for the opportunity to share about our project with A Better World Canada to support the work of the Home of New Beginnings in Bangkok.
The partnership with A Better World to support the Home came to be because of interest and response to my play She Has A Name which explores the reality of a young girl forced to work in the sex trade in Bangkok.
After two successful phases of the project, we will now focus on supporting needs at the Bangkok headquarters of the Home, which remains underfunded.
The third phase of the project we are looking to fund is supplying the Home’s food budget for a year which is approximately $15,000. It costs them about $1,200 per month to feed their house of 14 residents and two staff.
If you would like (or know someone who would like) to help support young women who have left the sex trade to find healing and their lives true purpose, you can help in this very practical way by donating to the project. You can donate online through A Better World here.
Info about the Home from their new website:
When a young woman decides to leave the sex trade and move to our residence, she joins our family. Only one of two residences in the region that operate in a family-atmosphere, Beginnings helps residents heal and process past trauma and emotions through counseling and therapy, learning of God’s great love for them and His plan for a future outside of the darkness of the red-light districts.
