Atchariya is a precious girl. She enjoys school and her favorite subject is Math. When she grows up she wants to become a teacher. Atchariya lives with her mother and father and two brothers. They live in a mud house. Her parents are both farmers. Due to drought conditions, crops are not doing well and the family doesn’t have enough income to provide for their needs. In their community it is not considered important for girls to get an education, and if Atchariya doesn’t go to school, she will end up getting married in her early teen years. Would you consider sponsoring Atchariya today? Together, we can transform this family in Jesus’ name.
New Hope Child Development Center
The New Hope Child Development Center helps children develop in a holistic manner. Practical trainings on cooking, home gardening and animal-raising are taught to hostel students. The program also conducts seminars and conferences for parents to increase their knowledge, develop their parental skills, strengthen spouse relationships, and increase awareness of sickness and disease prevention. Most importantly, the children are taught Scripture on a weekly basis, and also learn about God through Bible camps that are conducted each year.
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.
