A main mission of the club has been to offer courses for women to earn extra money in their free time or solve unemployment problems. This year’s curriculum covered traditional Thai dance, making baskets from plastic ropes, painting artificial jars and decoupage.
Next year’s programs will be finalized in September.
Besides occupational training, the Pattaya Women’s Development Group will hold English lessons to prepare its members’ coming ASEAN Economic Community. At present, the group has 430 members and the number is increasing continuously.
