A recent New York Times article highlights a trend that concerns us as well. We regularly meet teens and young adults who have come in from the Northeast, looking for work, but with inadequate education. They bounce around to different jobs, and of course many get involved in drugs and prostitution.
The nuts and bolts of Servantworks Narimon is a network of committed volunteers who sell products in homes, churches or at special events. You may also purchase some of our jewelry online at narimon.org. Narimon products are made by members of The Well in Bangkok.
The Well needs people with expertise in addictions, post-trauma and family counseling to spend time training staff and volunteers at The Well. Length of time is flexible–one week can be enough, although a longer period will obviously enable you to understand issues more deeply and be able to train more specifically.
Help develop an outreach and discipleship program for young Thai men with a similar purpose and vision as The Well, our women’s ministry: train leaders, reach families and change society. The men’s program would emphasize outreach to young men from poor, working-class backgrounds, particularly from northeast Thailand, and would include strong educational and job-training components. This job requires a long-term commitment.
