It's easy, brochures, pre-printed shoeboxes, carry bags and some school supplies will be available each Sunday at very low cost to help you start packing your shoebox. Skipping ropes made in the vocational training program at the Agape Orphanage in Thailand have also been purchased and will be available for sale. The older children at the orphanage make these products as part of their vocational training course, where they learn skills such as sewing, and rope tying that will help them gain employment after they leave the orphanage.
