Fatima Center Bangkok
The slums of Ding Deng are crowded with families trying to make a living working long hours with little resources. In an rapidly expanding metropolis, these people live on the fringes of the new city, in unsafe conditions along the canals and waterways. The Good Shepherd Sisters have been active in this area for 20 years, finding ways to empower the women, take care of the children, and protect the young. The Self-Help center is a vocational training school where women learn the techniques to cut, assemble and finish our beautiful toys and clothes. Every piece has been handmade and carefully crafted.
