Tamar Center|Thailand
Tamar Center is located in Pattaya, Thailand and was started in 1999 by Nella Davidse. The Tamar Center functions as an independent project under the covering of Project LIFE, in conjunction with Youth With a Mission, Thailand.
The goal of the Tamar Center is to offer an alternative to women who work in prostitution and to reach them with the Gospel. The number of women who find employment in prostitution in Pattaya is estimated to be between 20,000 and 30,000.
The Tamar staff has an outreach to the bars three days a week and invites the women to the center and offers them the following programs:
  • English Language classes three days a week
  • Counseling for emotional/inner healing and Bible training
  • Pregnancy counseling beginning in late 2010
  • Vocational training in Card making, Hairdressing, Bakery, Coffee Shop/Restaurant and small business skills
Through training they are learning a trade that will allow them to be self-supporting and return to society with dignity and value as a person.
