Golden Triangle Region
House of Confidence - Home for child prostitutes and children in serious difficulties or danger
The Golden Triangle is a famous region which covers the countries of Thailand , Burma and Laos. Many tourists come here every year but only few observe the problems in this area. Children from hilltribes are often caught up by drug dealers or criminals from the prostitution mafia. Togehter with the managing charity Hope for Life and other charities we opened up in 2006 an emergency shelter for child prostitutes. Very fast this place was getting more busy and the girls were scared to leave this kind of teahouse again. So we let them stay there and the need for more space was growing fas. In April 2007 we finished a new two storey building with all needed facilities. Today we host about 25 girls here. Beside accomodation, food, education and medical care they need professional help from psychologists in order to face their terrible past experiences. This projects is definetely our most heart touching project and we have to communicate our activities very carefully. The girls are between 7 and 15 years old and the youngest known child prostitute was only nine years when she came here.
To keep this project running and growing we need some regular donations, for example project scholarships for one of these girls.
