TAMAR VILLAGE

"To bring Hope, Help and Healing to people who will rebuild, restore and renew relationships and communities."

WHO WE ARE

Tamar Village was established in 2010 with Singapore as its main base. Tamar Village has a heart for reaching out to individuals in the Red Light Districts, bringing hope, help, and healing to them. Through walking journeys of restoration with individuals and families, lives have been renewed and rebuilt. We hope to see individuals reach out to their communities, to bring positive change to the lives of others around them.

 

Tamar Village facilitates this process of change through a holistic approach centered on the Restoration Centre. As we constantly need volunteers from a broad range of backgrounds and skill-sets to continue this work, there is a space for everyone who feels called to serve!
