Impact of Family Camps

Family Camp
Family Camp

Dear Friends,

Thanks to your support, we ran a family camp for 7 families in December and had many moms parenting alone in attendance. For one of the women, Meeyu,* an Akha (hilltribe) minority, it was an entirely new opportunity. Meeyu bears the heavy responsibility of caring for 8 family members in her house. Lacking education herself, she doesn’t ask her children to help around the house because she wants them to prioritize studying. But between working and taking care of 8 people, she feels tired, stressed and this causes frayed relationships in the home. 

After the camp, she expressed appreciation for  the new ways she learned to communicate her feelings and needs, and will start doing this more often. Meeyu recognizes now how caring for her own needs is important for the whole family, and how asking the children to help with chores equips them with essential life skills.

Strong and healthy family relationships set students up to succeed and decreases the risk of trafficking.

Because of your support we are able to help more families like Meeyu. Thank you!

With hope and gratitude,

The Freedom Story Team
