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!
In the Restoration Centre, we work with men and ladies who have chosen to leave the trades of the Red Light District (i.e. prostitution, pimping, sex trade etc.) to pursue a new lifestyle. We aim to rebuild, restore and renew their lives through a holistic approach that will empower and integrate them to a place of stability. We need volunteers in the following areas.
Anchor Volunteer/ Encourager / Buddy
Life Skills Coach
(Eg. Physical & Mental Health, Socio-Emotional skills, self-leadership)
Work Skill Programme
(Eg. Barista, sewing, woodwork, leather, retail, design, business)
Healing / Therapy
(Eg. Medical, housing, legal, providing milk and diapers, social services)
Empowerment / Transition
(Eg. Skill Courses, part-time jobs, empowering businesses)
Tamar Village conducts regular outreach walks to reach those still engaged in or at risk of working in the Red Light District trades. For this, we need volunteers in the following areas.
