Offering hope, healing, and a new life to the bar girls in Pattaya, Thailand
Tamar Center was founded in 1999 and seeks to provide hope in a city full of red-light districts. To provide healing through love, counseling based on biblical principles and to provide education through vocational training as well as job opportunities for girls leaving the bars.
Tamar Center operates two centers in Pattaya. In Soi 6 we have our Outreach Center which includes a Hair Salon, the House of Peace – a place for women working in the bars to come and rest, we offer free English Classes and have a House of Prayer on the top floor. On 3rd Road in Pattaya, we have our Main Office which includes our Restaurant and Bakery, Card and Handicraft Room, Counseling Center and Offices. In addition to these Centers we have rented ten houses in a small and quiet street where we have a nursery for the children of the women and accommodation for all the women in our programs. Tamar team members also do regular outreaches to Issan (the north east region of Thailand), the region where most of our women come from.
