There's an unfortunate cycle keeping families in the grips of poverty. Jobs are hard to find in the villages scattered throughout rural provinces like Si Saket. One of the first things parents are inclined to do is have their children leave school to help earn money for the family. Leaving school like this is almost always a sure bet for more trouble in the future.
Young women and single mothers often resort to the option of prostitution to support themselves and their families, while young men often turn to substances and prostitutes for immediate pleasure in the midst of their continuous struggles. What can be done? What change can happen to help lift families and whole villages out of this cycle of poverty?
We Love Isaan (YWAM Si Saket) started in March 2008 with the vision to see hearts filled with the love of Christ, lives transformed out of physical and spiritual poverty, and the Isaan people beginning to live out the dreams God has for them.
