It is our aim to assist women and their children who are lacking any social, financial, or emotional support. We will work with them to help them gain the independence needed to be able to care for themselves and their child by teaching them new job skills, financial management, parenting skills, and general life skills. For those already on the path to independent living there is a great need for safe, healthy, and affordable care for their children while they are at work. Two main needs have been identified in this area. The first is a residential program for women and their children that want to learn to live in community, parenting, financial management, job skills training, and a degree of re-parenting of the women themselves. The second need is care for the children of those who are already employed. Many daycare centers exist to cater to the middle to upper class of Thai society. The more affordable daycare centers are more often than not overcrowded with a low caregiver to child ratio.
