What began in 2008 as a rescue mission on the Thailand-Myanmar border, taking trafficked, abused, and abandoned children into shelters, has matured greatly over the last decade.
We now know that the best way to protect victims long-term and help them truly heal, is to give them a strong family.
Over the last decade, our work with victims of trauma has taught us that family is the best approach to child protection, which meant making a change for the children in our 3 long-term homes. Once we learned how we could legally recruit permanent foster families through the local church, it sparked a vision in us to make this possible for more orphaned children and we became global child advocates.
Our vision is to see every child protected within the love of a family.
In Thailand, we work alongside government agencies, child welfare departments, and local partners. We work to prevent family separation and to protect victims of abuse, trafficking, and orphanhood through short-term emergency care and longterm family-based care.
Globally, children need a voice more than ever. With the rise of internet exploitation, family separation, and orphanage trafficking, we are training and equipping child advocates so children don’t have to suffer in silence. We’re on a mission to equip and empower families, caregivers, churches, and communities as advocates to protect children and to find every orphaned child a safe family.
This is not about us.
This is about a God who loves every man, woman, and child who asks all of us to seek justice, defend the oppressed, and take up the cause of the fatherless. (Isaiah 1:17)
We look beyond brands, funding and ideology to ensure children are safe from harm. Our partners range from government officials to child welfare, to local organizations and churches.
We are Jesus followers and seek to reflect His character and love in all that we do, without agenda. We are grateful to work in extremely diverse contexts with people of all faiths and backgrounds.
Since good intentions can lead to a myriad of risks for children, we use evidence-based best practice in our approach to child protection. We are committed to the best interest of every child.
We believe that God designed families to be the best protection for children and their best advocates. We strengthen their resilience and give them the tools needed to keep their children safe.
We strengthen the existing support systems around children rather than focusing on the child in isolation. We respond to crisis but we also focus on preventing childhood trauma before it happens.
We listen to our national leaders and champion their vision for their own people. We recognize that their understanding of culture is essential to effectively engage injustice.
