Summary

Our mission is to give hope and support to vulnerable pregnant women, to provide foster care for children waiting to be adopted, and to protect and restore victims of sexual abuse. Our vision is to support strong and healthy families in Thai society. Mother's who can raise their own children. Foster children living in safe and loving families. Justice and a new future for sexual abuse victims. We cannot fulfill these plans on our own and place a high value on partnerships with the government.

Challenge

Thailand has one of the highest teen pregnancy rates in Asia which has lead to many broken and separated families. Infants that are abandoned or given up for adoption usually remain in institutions until they are adults without receiving the love and attachments they need. Young women who have been sexually abused are sometimes rejected by their families or sent to Bangkok to find work separate from their child where they are at risk for being trafficked.

Solution

Our prevention and awareness program partners with the Thailand Department of Social Development & Welfare, schools, and hospitals to promote healthy relationships, teen pregnancy awareness, and human trafficking prevention. By providing foster care for infants waiting to be adopted, we are reducing the number of infants going to institutions because it has motivated the government to find more domestic families to adopt children.

Long-Term Impact

Families are the fabric of society. If we can build healthier families, Thai society will be a safer and more vibrant place to raise a family. Through prevention and providing education opportunities to young mothers, we hope to reduce the number of teen pregnancies, reduce the number of children going to institutions, and prevent sexual abuse and trafficking from happening in the first place.
