Thailand: Northern Thailand is home to a number of ethnic minority groups known broadly as “the hill tribes,” each of which maintains its own culture, language and dress. Political oppression and centuries-old cycles of poverty have left thousands of hill tribe children without parents, without education and without hope. Asia’s Hope operates 10 children’s homes serving more than 225 hill tribe children in Northern Thailand. Seven of our homes are in Doi Saket, about 30 minutes north of Chiang Mai. One is in Hot Springs, about 45 minutes north of Doi Saket. The newest home is in Wiang Pa Pow, about an hour and a half north of Doi Saket, and sits on a piece of land that is suitable for another three or four homes, and will likely serve as Asia’s Hope base of future expansion in Thailand. This land also houses a ministry run by hill tribe widows, a series of agricultural, handicraft and micro-enterprise initiatives designed to provide the children with educational and economic opportunities. For 15 years, Asia’s Hope has been guiding God’s people into courageous leadership on behalf of the world’s most vulnerable children.
