BENEFITING: Servantworks Inc

Bryan Sherwood

THE STORY:

I wanted to try and do some good this Lent by raising some money for a cause I care about.  Servantworks is doing a great work in Thailand by helping young women not only leave the sex trade but helping these same women become agents of change in their own communities.  You can read all about their work at servantworks.org.

Currently, Servantworks is in need of 50 chairs.  

The Need

Servantworks' training center in Bangkok, called The Well, provides opportunity for women who are either in the sex industry or at risk. Most are mothers that we help to parent their own children while learning job skills.  Because most have low education, the process of moving them towards self support, especially those who are single moms, is very lengthy and costly.  3/4 of  the budget in fact goes toward direct financial support for women and children--so much in fact that they run pretty "lean and mean", including limited space. For daily classes the students all sit on the floor--something they are used to at home, but chairs are needed to help set the tone of structure and learning. 

So, I'm hoping you'll help me help them by making a donation this Lent. 

What $30 Does

Would you consider making a donation now?  A good chair cost about $30.  Could you donate enough to cover 1 chair?  5 chairs?  It's super easy.

And while you're at it, say a prayer for Servantworks and all the girls they minister to.
