Team – Home Away From Home

Ministry in Indochina

Project code: 
Project goal: 
(tax deductible)

Born from a vision many years ago, a house has been built to provide a home for disadvantaged children and youth attending school in the city.

This house is a newly built part of the local organisation that you have partnered with for many years. It needs furnishing to make it a home, and a lift to make it accessible for students with disabilities.

The vision of the founder of the local organisation, was to provide a boarding facility for children and youth whose families cannot otherwise afford education for their children in the city. Globally, education, at the most basic, means access to employment opportunities.

Employment opportunities change the course of an individual, a family and even a community for generations to come. It typically means access and hope is offered instead of cyclical poverty and enables more people to access a living wage.

The situation is no different in this context.

The house has been built but the need is the lift and furniture. This project will prepare the house to be a home away from home for 20-25 students when Marg and Ngoc return from home assignment.

Costs include:

Ceiling fans
Bedroom set ups from furniture to linen
Kitchen appliances from stove to tea towels
Dining room and living room furniture
Laundry and bathroom set ups from washing machines to towels

Through their day-to-day life, Jean-Claude and Joyce are engaging with people wholistically, responding to their spiritual and physical needs.

It is Jan and Jit’s desire to see each person develop as an individual,
learn new skills and move towards their potential for interdependent
and independent living.

Through this work they seek to partner with churches to see the
Christian community develop a sense of responsibility towards those
in need in their communities.

This project covers the costs of running disability group activities
in rural areas, the purchase of specialised equipment to improve
quality of life and provide the needs of the team travelling and
empowering people with disabilities in this Thai/Myanmar border

Partnership with this project means a home for disadvantaged youth, so they can go to school, changing the trajectory of their future and that of their families.
