Vocational Training Center

The Vocational Training Center

Located in Patong

Many poor girls and women have never had the chance to have a proper education. They have been forced into trades that they might never have chosen themselves, especially in Patong.

There are over 500 Thai women and men enrolled at the Center.

Overall Objective:

Provide an opportunity for proper Vocational Training for women who have been forced into trades that they might never had chosen themselves through Massage, Hairdressing, Computer Skills and English education so they can receive certification to change their career and earn a decent living.
