Tawsaeng (Children’s) Center
TawSaeng, the children's ministry project of The Garden of Hope, 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 center provides for a broad spectrum of holistic needs of the children - physical, emotional, spiritual, educational, 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 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.
We have developed a separate, expanded website for TawSaeng that will eventually be available in both English and Thai.
