THE STORY:

CHILDRENS ORGANIZATION SOUTHEAST ASIA INC wrote -

THESE GIRLS MATTER! Which girls? The 26 - soon to be 31 - at risk and trafficked girls that live with us at our Baan Yuu Suk shelter.

WHAT'S THE BAAN YUU SUK SHELTER? It's a family made up of amazing girls ages 7 to 17 who were caught in the cycle of child trafficking and exploitation that exists in northern Thailand. Over the past five years, we have wittnessed girls become confident young women and empowered leaders within our community. 

THE PROBLEM? Due to debilitating financial challenges, our family is at risk of breaking up. If the shelter shuts down, many girls will not return to school while others have no home to return to. Right now, we need your help to keep our doors open while pursuing funding opportunities.

THE SOLUTION? If each of you give what you can to let these 31 girls know you care about their futures, we can continue to ensure a brighter future for each and every girl. If every one of our supporters donates at least $20, we can keep our promise to provide these girls with brighter livelihoods.

 

But wait, there's more!

We're not just about the family within the space of Baan Yuu Suk - we're about our extended family all over the world as well. Whether you are a girl's sponsor, former volunteer, partner, have visited our shelter, heard one of our trafficking talks, or think to yourself "COSA? Isn't that something they do in Italy?" - we couldn't have made it this far without you, and we definitely won't make it to our fundraising goal without your continued support.

For all of you who donate to keep this shelter open, we've put our heads together to come up with some wonderful and unique ways of saying the words that matter most: Thank You!
