The challenge: To create a safe place where prosperity is possible.
Especially women and girls from poorer families, who have no chance of education, are often victims of human trafficking, prostitution and violence in Thailand.
Protection in a nunnery
Women and girls find this protection in Rayong in Thailand, not far from Pattaya, led by the Buddhist nuns (Bhikkhunis) Dr. Lee and Rattanavali.
