Children at ZOE’s Home in Thailand Have Fun Making Handmade Items to Sell as Part of Their Vocational Training

May 2, 2023

Vocational training is crucial to ZOE’s holistic, survivor-centered approach to combat human trafficking. ZOE’s rescued children and at-risk youth accumulate a wide range of vocational skills and training and are taught to set realistic short and long-term goals. For youth survivors living at our ZOE Home, our goal is that they will experience total restoration and learn how to build a future where they are no longer vulnerable.

Recently, the ZOE youth put on a market at ZOE in Thailand to showcase and sell their handmade items as part of their vocational training. Members of our staff, field workers, and other youth were able to buy these handmade creations to support their work which will build confidence to support themselves in the future.

Our ZOE staff shared, “The children were thrilled and excited to have the ZOE staff, volunteers, and guests who visited ZOE support their work.” 

There were many different items for sale, including baked goods, pieces of woodworking, embroidered fabrics, handmade crafts, and more! Thank you for supporting ZOE’s critical restoration efforts in Thailand for our youth!
