Sitikorn is a happy little boy in Thailand. He lives in a Buddhist home with his parents and sister. His father cuts grass for a living, while his mother sells different little things. They work hard, but their income is not enough to cover all of the family’s expenses, including Sitikorn’s schooling. While Sitikorn is still young his parents want him to receive a good education and care. At the childcare center, Sitikorn will receive nutritious food, clothing, an education, and medical care. In addition, he will experience the love of Jesus and receive teaching from the Word of God. Thank you for investing in Sitikorn’s future!
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.
