Shan dorm girls
In: Thailand
ID: 22053

Nearly twenty adolescent girls in a Shan village have embraced Jesus as their Lord, and are growing in their passion to know and worship Him! But they face a tragic future.

With hardly an exception, all these girls are destined to become prostitutes in the big cities to the south about the time they enter high school. Their families consider prostitution one of the primary paths leading them out of poverty, and are resigned to give up their daughters for the hope of a better life.

For the past two years we have been successfully working to prevent this tragedy by providing housing and funds for schooling for five girls (out of 17 needing academic sponsors) whose guardians or extended families have told them they can no longer care for them. These are young, dedicated followers of Jesus who are a core part of our ongoing church plant. Providing a dorm not only saves them from being forced into sexual slavery, but also gives our team a chance to build into their lives 24/7. All of the girls essential needs are provided in the dorm, and a Thai dorm “mother” cares for them and disciples them as followers of Jesus Christ.

The continuation of this project will cover all project expenses for the coming two school years (2018-2019 and 2019-2020).

Cost: $37,000

Deadline: December 2019
