Microloan Sales For Christmas!


This is the number of young adults caught in the sex industry in Pattaya, Thailand.


This is the amount of U.S. dollars needed to provide a young woman or man, formerly enslaved in prostitution with education, job skills training and a microloan to start a new job or business.

We need your help!

Help us RENEW a life this Christmas by selling $25 microloan gift cards to friends & family.

EWOP volunteers will be stationed in the mallway near the Information Desk this Sunday, Nov. 16th through the Sunday before Christmas to pass out microloan cards and/or collect any money raised.

Our goal is to sell 200 cards!!
That's $5000 or 50 young women & men to go through the microloan program.

For more information about the Microloan Program in Pattaya, go to

For questions about selling the microloan cards, e-mail Amy Wasson at
