  1. Weekly Hair & Nails Outreach ~ ($500/mth) Providing a safe environment for exploited women to connect with women believers. They receive some simple pampering from people who expect nothing in return except to begin building trusting relationships.
    1. June Update ~ We continue this weekly outreach and are happy to report that we now have repeat ladies that come to chat, have their hair done and beginning to share their stories with our team.
  2. Child Advocacy Center Phuket ~ K. Ning ($2500/mth includes rent, programming costs and 1 staff role): This is a new partnership with the Royal Thai Police. We will providing community development programming and training for children and families in the northern part of Phuket.
    1. July Update ~ Grand opening a great success! Was truly an incredible day. We have also gone had applications and interviews for our next Thai staff hire for the position of children’s programming at  eCAC. We hope to have her start August 1.
  3. Baking Project Coordinator – Viyada ($1000/mth):  Viyada and her husband have been volunteers with us right from the beginning. They have an incredible story of restoration. They actually met here in the party district decades ago and God has brought this beautiful restoration to their story. Viyada will be serving as our baking project director and also in an overall role overseeing the vocational training center.
  4. Children’s Programming Coordinator – K. Pla (800/mth):  With the launch of the Child Advocacy Center, in addition to supporting investigations of child exploitation cases, we will also be looking to launch community education and awareness programs. This role will look to partner with local schools and provide programming support to children.
    1. July Update ~ We have hired (August 15th start date) a Christian lady who is the children’s coordinator at a local church.
  5. *NEW* Social Worker (1500-2000/mth): Thai law requires that a licensed, Thai, social worker must interview all child exploitation cases.  We have begun praying and looking for the Lords to lead us to a Christian social worker.
    1. July Update ~ After researching the capacity of social workers in Phuket and speaking with the prosecutors office, there is a great shortage of SW in Phuket and because of this, are not able to support all cases adequately or if they do support are not able to provide defensible statements to prosecute if a statement is given to someone other than a social worker.
  6. Future Ministry Center: (Approx $150,000)  This will be the ministry and programming hub for our initial activities including the vocational training center, ESL, family and finance education, additional  ministry programs in the Red light districts of Phuket.
    1. July Update ~ Asia Center Foundation (Safe House Partner) has agreed to allow us to build, rent free, on their land and build our Ministry Center there instead of renting space and renovating. Additionally, we have been connected with an international bank that may approve a matching donation campaign. Finally, an award winning architect has also approached us to donate her time to design the future center.  Please be praying for God to lead through all of this.  More updates coming soon.
  7. Phuket Safe Home ($130,000): Fully Funded! We are excited to announce that we have partnered with Asia Center Foundation to build a brand new safe home for at risk children in Phuket. We are raising $130,000 with hopes to begin building sometime in 2017
    1. July Update ~ Land clearing has begun and construction beginning.
  8. Thai Foundation ($20,000): The  application requires 500,000 Thai baht (approx $20,000 CAN) to be held in the bank account of the foundation. This is not a fee, but simply startup capital that is required by the Thai government. It must remain in a term deposit with the foundation.
    1. June Update ~ APPROVED! For Freedom International is now an official Thai foundation! Praise God!

2017 Outfit Fund – $6000/yr : 

  • Phuket is a beautiful tourist location. Because of this, the cost of living is higher than some other locations. While we receive a living allowance through the Global Advance Fund (GAF) we are given permission to raise an additional $6000/yr to help with living costs. This is not salary. This fund will help with clothing, children’s schooling c0sts, supplies, unexpected costs, etc.
    1. June Update ~ $5000 raised for 2017. Thank you!
