At The Well, we want educate and empower working-class women to parent their children well and see the cycle of broken families end.
Family-friendly employment is hard to find for those with low education. Many Thai women choose to leave their children in a rural village with relatives when they move to the city to find work.
Unfortunately, this separation produces a cycle of attachment issues and abuse. Many elderly relatives are not equipped to care for young children. Women who were abandoned by their parents are more prone to emotionally abandon their children.
Women at The Well are able to work and learn during the week. We provide other social-service benefits, including:
- Stipends to offset the cost of good, local childcare
- Parenting classes
We see children growing up much healthier, and we see families living and loving each other better. The cycle is breaking.
