The first of its kind in the world, Discovery Street is more than just a vocational training center. Discovery Street is a place where children can dream, where hope is restored, confidence is built, and passions and purpose are realized. Children will be equipped with life skills needed for independent living so they will no longer be re-victimized.
Summer 2023 Update:
We’re moving forward with the planning and architect/land prep stages. To date, approximately $924,790 has been brought in for this $2.2 million dollar project. Thank you for your generosity and for your commitment to invest in a child’s restoration and future!
One of the buildings the ZOE Thailand team has been working on is the restaurant and coffee shop. The team has been meeting weekly to walk the property, pray, strategize, and research every detail to make the restaurant and coffee shop a top-notch vocational and training environment for the youth.
More specifically, at the restaurant, youth will learn how to serve customers, be a hostess, clean the tables, prepare the bills, and even how to become a chef! Additionally, a skilled chef will teach the youth classic cooking methods, world cuisine, food preparation, nutrition, menu planning, and more.
We are thrilled that the youth we serve will be empowered with the skills necessary to pursue a rewarding career in the culinary trade. By providing them with this opportunity, we aim to break the cycle of victimization, reduce their vulnerability, and equip them to succeed in the next chapter of their lives.
We’re still raising funds for Discovery Street. If you have already given, thank you! If you haven’t yet donated, please prayerfully consider an investment into the future of the youth we serve.
Thank you for sending hope, restoration, and a brighter future to child survivors of human trafficking. And as always, thank you again for your continued prayers!
