Thailand – Lahu Project
In 2011, ICCM built and opened a hostel for children of the Lahu tribe in Thailand who are at high risk for trafficking. For Lahu tribal children in Thailand, an education is all that stands between them and a life of slavery.
Thailand is known for its robust sex tourism. Behind that sinister industry is the scourge of poverty that keeps people desperate for survival and easy to exploit. That’s why International Child Care Ministries was asked by local faith leaders to build a hostel and provide education, food, clothing and hope for tribal children. Our hostel provides 20 children with access to primary and secondary education and Christian care.
