We have launched a new Thai National Foundation

Over the past 4 years, our projects and team has grown from 4 people to a team of 33 people from three different countries, speaking 12 different languages with 8 different projects directly engaging and helping over 150 families per month and ready to reach more. We had become too big to be a subsidiary of another foundation any longer.

How Family is the School of Justice.

When men, women, and children live in families, they are experiencing justice and providing justice to others. This justice spreads, because as they gather in a community and the communities form the state, everyone has a stake in doing what is best for the least powerful among them and giving everyone his due, which is justice.

Bringing Hope

This process of supporting families is messy, and hard. Not all stories end well. Often we meet someone in need too late. We can’t undo the damage done to a baby by malnutrition or violence. But we walk with the parents through their current reality and provide support for the present situation. And we keep looking to identify those most at risk, to find them soon enough, to prevent what can so easily be prevented.

Why We Are Focusing on Family Support

We have learned a lot since our days of just supporting an orphanage. Now we know that the best way to protect children is to help their birth families to be strong and safe wherever possible.
