Tamar Center Provides Recovery for Prostitutes in Thailand

The Tamar Center in Pattaya Thailand, a ministry birthed out of Youth With a Mission (YWAM), is providing women caught up in the Thailand Prostitution a way out.

Many women in Thailand enter into prostitution not by choice, but by being sold into it, forced into it or because they can’t see another way to survive. The Tamara Center provides these women with another way to survive through a three-month program that focuses on:

  • Christian Teachings
  • Learning English
  • Learning new skills (baking, hairdressing, etc)

About 80% of the women who go through the program offered by the centre manage to avoid returning to prostitution.
