Chanchai is a precious boy who comes from a large family in Thailand. He grew up in a Christian family living in the Chaingmai province where there are many pine trees. Chanchai’s parents work together in the fields in order to provide for their family but it is difficult to pay for the school fees of all their children. With the help of your sponsorship, Chanchai will have the opportunity to grow up in a safe environment receiving nutritious meals, medical attention, clothing, and a good education. Most imprtantly, he will hear of Christ’s love for him. Thank you for blessing Chanchai and his family through sponsorship!

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.
