Summary

The Northern Thailand mountains are dotted with small hill tribe villages. The families in these communities are extremely poor and desperate. Children have no schools, and only know the language of their tribe. They have no opportunity to escape a life of poverty other than by entering the sex trade or a life of crime. Warm Heart offers an alternative, providing a safe and loving home so they can attend local schools and get an education, and break the chains of poverty.

Challenge

How do you turn your back on a child living in dire circumstances? You don't. That is why we have 45 children living with us at Warm Heart, we sponsor another 35 children at a local government boarding school, have 3 kids away at vocational-technical high schools and 10 success stories at university. Just keeping track of all of them is a full time job! Our biggest challenge is covering the expense, which at times seems like an insurmountable task.

Solution

What these kids need to change their lives is access to an education. When a child comes to live at Warm Heart they are given a safe place to live, do not have to worry about where their next meal will come from. Warm Heart provides transportation, uniforms, and school supplies so they can attend local schools. When they return from school they go directly into tutoring, helping them with mastering Thai language, learning English, help with math.

Long-Term Impact

Our kids work extremely hard. They come to us sometimes with broken spirits, most unable to speak Thai. Our 45 children living at Warm Heart are succeeding! Because they are given the opportunity they are graduating kindergarten, ninth grade, high school. All of them. And some even go on to college. With your support they are no longer looking at a bleak life of poverty, they have discovered opportunities they never even knew existed living in their isolated villages.
