What does this mean? 3 Ways This Impacts Us
1. MORE Kids
On average 60 kids are trafficked on the Thai and Burma Border each day. All of these exploited children can now be sent to Life Impact’s government-recognized transitional home. This safe house will offer them care for 3 to 12 months with the possibility of transferring them to our Life Impact Promise Land with a loving family unit.
2. MORE Opportunities
Our already rescued children will be able to get ID cards and citizenship, a privilege previously denied them. This means their futures will be brighter, as they will be able to go to college, get jobs in all levels of society, and travel freely across borders without the chance of re-exploitation. Their lives have been changed, so they can now change the world around them.
3. MORE Impact
We will be able to set up our own community task force to legally rescue children along a major highway that cuts through our Promise Land, known as the new silk road of Asia. Along this highway, children are trafficked throughout Southeast Asia, all the way up to China and all the way down to Singapore. We will now be able to intervene on their behalf.

What's next? From Thailand to Burma
This is only the beginning! The government of Thailand asked us if we could write a proposal to the government of Myanmar (Burma). The proposal will outline how we can help Burmese children the same way we are helping the Thai children on this side of our border!
