Ncwsa logo copy During our early years in Mae Sai, God clearly impressed upon us that we will be working with children and women. So it is only logical that we are now working together with NCWSS. We are hoping to do more projects through NCWSS. Below is the document describing the organization's activities and projects. NCWSS is an orgnization who woks to help the child and women in the provinces of Northern Thailand like Mae Sai, Mae Fa Luang, Chiang Kong, Chiang Saen, Mong, Lampang and other places. Many children and women became victims of abuse, exploitation and human trafficking. These problems are real but the community seems oblivious to the increasing realities of these evil deeds being committed against children and women. Therefore, different organisations and individuals who are genuinely concern to fight against these problems work together to protect the right and welfare of women and children.

  1. To provide accommodation and education for the homeless children.
  2. To assist in the care of the orphans.
  3. To help the children who are the victims of sexual abuse.
  4. To assist in protecting the children from human trafficking.
  5. To help women from abusive husbands.
  6. To assist women and children from labor and sex trafficking.
  7. To help women workers from exploitative employers.
  8. To increase knowledge of the communities to enable them to have a greater concern for being part of the solving problems.
When there are several groups and organisations which have the same mission and vision, they can work together to achieve their goals. NCWSS has been established for the purpose of:
  1. Unite together to help and protect children and women’s right.
  2. Share information, problems and experiences for better solve the problems.
  3. Coordinate with the government, community organisations and individuals to achieve the goals.

In a couple of years I'll be moving to Thailand for 2 years as an English teacher with the hope of becoming a long-term missionary there. I am currently in my last year, finishing my BA Theology Degree, then I will get my Post Graduate Certificate in Education. Not sure which province, city or school I will be assigned to, but I would love to connect with you and this organization when I get to Thailand! My email address is paulsen.nic23@gmail.com. Please contact me so that I can have some sort of contact with you if I need any information. Thanks!
