They have survived and thrived despite real disadvantage.
At Second Chance Bangkok they collect pre loved clothing and creatively reuse the fabrics to create fun and useful products such as the Ice Cream Key Ring. The employment created gives sustainable employment and independence for the women who work there.

Poo ( Meaning 'Turtle' in Thai ) was born and has lived all her life in Klong Toey and with some help from a Sister Organisation to SCB started a cooking school and wrote her cook book aptly named " Cooking with Pooh" What an amazing lady! Giving Poo just a little help to set up her business has made such a difference to her life and her children's future.
