At Jojo's Sanctuary, our mission is to educate and empower vulnerable children, caregivers and community leaders to prevent abuse and exploitation. We do this by forming multi-disciplinary teams in Northern Thai communities which train and equip local leaders to protect the children in their communities. We implement the Building Family Dreams program which facilitates seminars related to human trafficking awareness and prevention, internet safety, financial security and preventing domestic abuse. We plan to establish a safe foster home to shelter vulnerable children for up to a year while long term solutions are being developed for them.
Many children in Northern Thailand are or may become victims of abuse or trafficking due to lack of access to education and resources. Rural communities are especially risky because they do not have ready access to many of the resources available to those who live in larger cities like Chiang Mai. By working with community leaders, partnering with local churches, and improving the Thai foster care system, we aim to reach out to families at risk and provide holistic support and training. Our aim is to develop a sustainable, effective network of community stakeholders that will value and promote the importance of protecting children and develop strategies for providing a secure, loving and nurturing environment that allows all children to thrive.
