Spread JOY Campaign
For 20 years, Joy to the World Foundation (JTTWF) Thailand has been working to provide care, programs, housing, and resources for marginalized people groups in Northern Thailand. The primary purpose at JTTWF Thailand is to love like Jesus, restore life, give education, and create opportunities for vulnerable youth. Through our programs, we hope to see young people rise up to be providers and influencers in their communities and transform the culture of human trafficking from the inside out. In the last 20 years, 80% of the girls in our program that have graduated high school have gone on to college or Bible school and 90% of the D1 Leadership Academy (D1LA) students have graduated college or Bible school with a degree. Some are among the first in their village to graduate high school and/or college.
Joy to the World Foundation Thailand is one of few organizations in northern Thailand that offers educational and emotional support up through the college years. With your help, we can transform a generation that will create a stable, lasting impact.
In order to see our vision for the next 3 years come to life, we are praying for people to consider making a special gift for the 20th year celebration. We appreciate your continued support and look forward to seeing what God has in store for the next 3 years!
