LifeLine Family Care and Mentorship Centre
We operate a family-style care home in Chiang Rai City, housing hill tribe girls who are at extreme risk of falling through the cracks back into a life of extreme poverty or being exposed to sexual exploitation. Providing a family for these vulnerable girls is the passion of our hearts and the dedication of our lives. The girls who join our family may have suffered varying degrees of emotional or physical abuse and have either been orphaned, abandoned, or are from an extremely remote village with no access to resources or opportunities for higher education. We have worked with several teenage girls since the inception of our family care home, and currently six at-risk girls ages 12 to 20 years old are in our care. We believe that family-style care provides a better opportunity for mentoring these girls into adulthood. A positive trend is developing in this direction based on research done by children’s rights organizations.
WHAT YOU PROVIDE: a safe, positive and loving family environment, full personal care and ongoing educational opportunities for these beautiful young girls, who because of your donation are able to see their dreams and visions become a reality.
