Sitthichai is a young boy in Thailand who wants to become a solider when he grows up. His favorite subject is physical education and he loves to play football. His parents never received a formal education and are illiterate, but they work hard are farmers trying to provide for their son. The community where they live is dangerous and has a lot of drug activity, so Sitthichai’s parents are very thankful for AMG’s sponsorship program that allows Sitthichai to live and study at Living Stream. There he also receives nutritious food, basic healthcare, and teaching from the Bible.

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.
