WIN AN AMAZING TRIP TO THAILAND!
Each $10 Donation Will Help Us In The Fight To End Sex Trafficking In Pattaya, Thailand.
No little girl says she wants to grow up to be in the sex industry. No little girl dreams of having lifelong nightmares of rape. No little girl says that she wants these things, yet, that’s exactly what’s happening to literally hundreds of thousands of girls, boys, men and women every day worldwide.
Though sex slavery can be found in every region, one of the hardest hits areas of our world is in Southeast Asia. Year by year the problem of trafficking in this region is getting worse.
On one street in Pattaya, Thailand there are over 4,000 bodies up for sale and citywide there are an estimated 200,000 people trapped in the sex industry. Hard to imagine? It should be. This has got to stop.
Not Abandoned has been helping women exit sex trafficking in the city of Pattaya for the past 10 years through providing practical resources through the Employment Education Center. This center is currently maxed out due to the high number of women responding to programs. Because of this we are in desperate need of expansion into a larger building which will allow us to reach 3x more women with freedom. That’s an estimated annual influence of over 15,000 more lives, which includes women in trafficking and their families!
Our Goal: $150,000 US dollars
|Total cost of project||$350,000|
|Total amount raised||$200,000|
|Remaining amount needed for building purchase||$80,000|
|Amount needed for remodel and equipping||$70,000|
Cross Thailand off your bucket list with an epic experience for you and your besty! Each $10 donation gets you an entry into winning an amazing Thailand experience, valued at $5000.
Go barefoot and on walk pristine beaches on Ko Samet, Ko Taruato, Ko Lanta, Ko Chang, Ko Tao, Ko Jum, Ko Lipe, Ko Phi Phi, Phuket, the Similan Islands, and Ko Samui.
