Bright Home Hostel

The Bright Home Hostel aims to help children devastated by their difficult environments. Many children have divorced or deceased parents and have nowhere to stay. At the hostel, children are developed physically and spiritually. The staff help the children with their homework, teach moral and biblical truths, and provide counsel to them. The hostel also partners with local churches to use their larger facilities for Bible teaching, activities and meals.

Thailand is a predominantly Buddhist country, and many people also believe in the spiritual realm. Children from poor families go to state-run schools where teaching is sub-standard. Their parents normally have little education and cannot be relied upon to help them.  School children seldom reach the ninth grade and most end up working in family farms. Since the people have very low or no education, they lack basic knowledge of life skills like personal hygiene, household management, family planning and balancing budgets.
