Join us for a cultural Immersion to one of our partner program locations in Chang Rai, Thailand. We will join the girls currently training at our Bloom facility and share in a jewelry training session with the artisans on site.

The trip will include eight nights of five star accommodations with breakfast and dinner, air & ground transportation within the country, a visit to the elephant sanctuary, temple tours, sight seeing, cooking class, jewelry making lesson, and more. 

Cost of the trip will be $5,500 ($2,000 of which is a tax deductible donation). All airfare to and from Thailand is not included.  Each attendee is responsible for their own airfare.  A non-refundable deposit of $750 is required to hold a spot.  We will be bringing a maximum of seven attendees. Payment plans can be arranged upon request. Last but not least, we will share flight information to allow attendees to plan to travel together.

      Spring 2019

Our annual immersion trips are planned to give volunteers a first hand experience with survivors of trafficking, working directly at shelters populated by rescued girls. This year’s group will be helping to strengthen the work being done by the Latin American branch of our Bloom ProgramTM, an initiative to educate and empower these young women and turn them from survivors to THRIVERS. Fundraising done by the attendees will be used to supplement and sustain the program.

Attendees will use their time in the area to complete much-needed service projects around the facility, so they can truly be “Love in Action”. They will also get to interact with the survivors and their families, and talk with the staff that deals with the day to day challenges.
