Training Equips Thai Men as Skilled Workers

Growing Entrepreneurs International

Project Description

Most of Thailand still today is rural farm land where most families have historically been rice farmers for generations. Yet, at the same time, the urban cities and tourist areas of Thailand are rapidly changing with new educational and job opportunities. This creates a growing gap between Thai men who are uneducated and unskilled to obtain these new skilled jobs. The Foundry is bridging this gap by providing training to obtain skilled jobs that create the opportunity for these men to better provide financially for their family and provide educational opportunities for their children.

In developing and emerging countries like Thailand job skill training and placement are vital to empower the local people the ability to escape poverty, increased job opportunities, transcend new economic classes, and transform the lives of families and communities.

The Foundry is one of three projects lead by GEI, also including Unleashed Emerging World Internships and Bliss Mae Baan Network. Each of these projects is under our Thai Foundation where Thai men and women give a small donation to participate in training as well as join our professional network to connect with new and on-going job opportunities. Our Thai Foundation also receives suggested donations from local employers who place and employ our skilled laborers.

The Foundry was started specifically because of the fruitfulness of our Bliss housekeeper training for Thai women. Over the last 3 years Bliss has trained over 400 Thai and hill-tribe women, and these women have continued to ask for additional skill training for men.

In developing and emerging countries like Thailand job skill training and placement are vital to empower the local people the ability to escape poverty, increased job opportunities, transcend new economic classes, and transform the lives of families and communities.

Chicken Farm Brings Sustainable Resources To Impoverished Villages in Pakistan

The main goal of the project is to alleviate poverty & disciple Christian farmers in their faith. The chicken farm we have built is a self-sustaining business for the family who manages it, but it also provides funding for our missionaries who have very limited funding from within Pakistan due to the extreme oppression of Christians there. The Project also impacts the lives of other villagers by providing a point of ready access to the purchase of poultry products.

Rickshaws Provide Sustainable Livelihood to Families in Pakistan

Rickshaws Provide Sustainable Livelihood to Families in Pakistan

Servant Project for Asia team members have distributed rickshaws to provide a sustainable means of livelihood generation for struggling families in poor communities of Pakistan. Many rickshaw drivers are finding it difficult to come out of the cycle of poverty as they are not able to take their full earnings home because they don’t own their Rickshaw and have to pay high rent for it. Our Rickshaw project has been set up to help Christian Rickshaw drivers to earn a daily income. As they drive passengers they can share the good news of Jesus. Plus, the money saved by them can now be spent to provide food and education to help sustain their family.
