digiServe’s passion is to see local Thai organizations improve their effectiveness and efficiency by leveraging IT to increase their capacity to accomplish their mission. They provide basic IT training, training on Google Apps, consulting on network infrastructure, process management training, and custom software development. By providing software and digital services to social agencies, they will help build capacity to provide a higher quality of care. Their desire is to focus on orphanages and children at risk, developing and then deploying the Child At Risk System for FCF and several other groups in Chiang Mai. Additionally, they will work closely with other types of Foundations in order to provide custom software and IT services that will best benefit them.

The HUG Project Thailand exists to prevent, protect, and restore child victims of sexual abuse and human trafficking. Through close cooperation with TICAC (Thailand Internet Crimes Against Children) task force and CACT (Children’s Advocacy Centers Thailand), HUG team members are working toward justice for those who harm children sexually, and healing for young survivors. 

 

Prevention activities include educating young people about Safe/Unsafe/Confusing Touch and Online Grooming. Protection efforts involve partnering with the Royal Thai Police and others to maximize the effectiveness of investigations into child sexual abuse/exploitation.  Restoration encompasses every step from rescue to recovery - connecting survivors and their families with needed resources (from medical treatment and legal assistance to counseling and job training).

 

HUG Founder and Director, Boom Mosby, has been recognized by the US State Department as a 2017 Trafficking in Persons Hero, and as a 2018 Vital Voices Global Leader in Human Rights, for her work as a child victim advocate.

At Khamsiri Community Centre our purpose is to share the love of Jesus by serving the children of the impoverished and marginalized inner city. We offer them a safe place to come, play, learn, discover, grow and be loved and accepted. We do this through various activities such as teaching life skills, cooking and baking instruction, arts and crafts and imaginative play. Additionally, we strive to demonstrate healthy personal boundaries and mentor the children in areas such as self-worth, respect, and critical thinking. Proficient English skills are vital for the children as they grow older and consider opportunities for their future, so we teach basic conversational English. A quality education is highly valued and crucial for future success, so we invest in the children’s education through the “Education Matters” program. This program currently sponsors many of the children in the community to obtain a quality primary and secondary education. Our goal is to love the community well, improve future opportunities for these children and their families and create a safe and supportive environment for growth.

The Lahu Living Word ministry focuses on the Lahu speaking people of Thailand, Myanmar, China and, prayerfully, Laos.  These ministries are built around the Lahu Christian Correspondence Course (LCCC), a written course of ten  lessons that are right now delivered to over 1700 active students.  Follow-up on the LCCC is done through two ministries. First, the Mobile Training Program is designed for those enrolled in the correspondence course for deeper study, to answer specific questions, and to learn the basics of the Christian faith. Second, the Biblical Leadership Training is designed for the development of future leaders of the Lahu Church. These programs  were developed with partnership in mind. Every year teaching trainers, linguists, and funding partners are needed to make this project a success.

Neighborhub is a community center located in urban Chiang Mai among the majority Thai Buddhist people. We are focusing on families, youth, and children in the surrounding community as well as the music and art community at large in Chiang Mai. We are strategically open with our faith in Christ, being light and salt to these people, and fostering communication about God and Jesus. We are facilitating communities of Christ followers among these unreached Thai nationals … those passionate about their faith and who will be leaders in their communities and beyond.

 

Building a bridge into the lives of Buddhist people … The use of art, music, baking, English, and children ministries gives us the tools to connect in a natural unintimidating way. Art classes are designed to have the Creator God in view. Music, baking, and English are used to build relationships and also provide life training. Through these real relationships we are seeing lives begin to change and Thai people coming to faith in Jesus Christ. Our hope is to see small groups of Christ followers started and ultimately reaching throughout Thailand.

“You shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free.” These words of the Lord Jesus Christ are as true today as the day He spoke them. Our goal is to be faithful ambassadors of the one true God and to bring the Gospel to a perishing people. The Gospel is the only message that can save men's souls and transform their lives. We aim to preach the Gospel in demonstration of the Spirit and power. We believe that the Gospel is a message that we proclaim with words. We aim to live faithful lives that adorn the true doctrine of the Gospel, and we desire to love our neighbor as ourselves.


The specific outworking of this will be that we are adopting the formal FCF objectives regarding the family, and that we are seeking to pour our lives into people. We will do this in a variety of different ways. Ultimately, it is the people more than the structures we create that really matter. We aim to spend time sharing the love of Jesus with people one on one, through teaching in churches, through kids clubs, through prison ministry, through English teaching, through after school tutoring, through writing, translating, and distributing Christ-centered literature, and any other means that we find.

TawSaeng, gives at-risk abused and vulnerable children knowledge, love, education, and social development to improve their quality of life and better understand their self-worth, including protection of child-rights based on Christian principles and beliefs.

 

During the weekday afternoons and evenings, dedicated national staff and international volunteers serve approximately 30 children in a key red-light district who are at risk of many dangers, including sexual exploitation, child labor, poverty, and discrimination. Most of these children need help to stay in school and to succeed in life. These children, and many more, need help in gaining citizenship in the very country they were born in. Without such help, exploitation and discrimination remain constant threats.

 

TawSaeng provides for a broad spectrum of holistic needs of the children - physical, emotional, spiritual, educational, and relational - through a variety of activities. The children are fed healthy meals, receive quality learning opportunities (including learning English), learn social survival skills, and are given an opportunity to play in a safe environment. TawSaeng serves these children in their life situations, along with their families, who almost all live in slums nearby. This gives us even a greater opportunity to help transform entire communities for God’s glory.

Together We Serve’s heart is is shine the light of Christ through their good deeds so that others may know him. In all they do, they seek to love God and serve others and instill this mindset in everyone with whom they serve. They want to see at risk people from rural communities given the chance to have basic needs met. They do this by providing free dental care, haircutting, and taking professional portraits to help people see their own value. 

 

They train and disciple young people like high school students, college students and professionals from many careers to develop their heart to help serve the Lord and society.  They believe that the youth will be effective leaders in the future if they are empowered today and given a good moral foundation and opportunities to serve.
