Waraporn is a sweet little girl from a poor Buddhist family. She is the youngest of two sisters, but her older sister passed away a few years ago. Waraporn is described by others as a very patient and active young lady, who is very joyful and obedient. She and her parents live in a small house built of wood and concrete and capped with a zinc roof. Her parents make money by farming on government owned land as they cannot afford to purchase their own property. Your sponsorship of Waraporn would allow her to receive food and educational help at AMG’s child and youth development center. More importantly, she would receive Bible teaching and training that would help her as she grows into adulthood. By sponsoring Waraporn, you could help her and her family come to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ. Thank you for your thoughtful consideration.
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.
