Many people have asked me “After these Hmong people go back, what do you plan to do ?”
Honestly, I don’t know. I don’t have a 5 year plan, I don’t have even a 2 year plan. *grinz*
I’m a business graduate and its almost challenging not to be able to have an answer for these questions. It just goes against the grain of everything I’ve studied.
But this is a list of things I want to do this year… But of course its not possible without funding and support ! 🙂
1 ) Project Shophouse! – Teaching people to fish
This is a low risk business, where I plan to employ 2 village womenfolk from destitute backgrounds to work in a shophouse in the village. This firstly serves as a launch pad for our current refugee effort and secondly, this project aims to house these womenfolk and equip them with life skills.
2 ) Project SeekOut! – Fact Finding/ Help Feasibility Mission
We are also planning to visit internally displaced people groups along the Thai-Myanmar border. We understand that some of these people groups have dire needs for medical, clean water and food. Our fact finding mission will go into these areas in Feb/Mar to determine what can RADION do there.
3 ) Project Y-Gen! – Helping children out of child prostitution
We are planning to work with another Canadian family to go into the Myanmar/Thai border to help these children who have been coerced into child prostitution. We are also looking at ways which we can house them and give them a new lease of life.
Yes. We do have a extended plan but after seeing God speed up our efforts in the refugee camp, we gave up planning timelines- They are just too slow.
Now this is challenging 🙂
