About This Project

For Freedom International exists to break chains of oppression so that people have an opportunity to encounter Christ, live in freedom, and change the world.

For Freedom International works to change conditions that allow exploitation to exist. We believe in a holistic approach to giving people the opportunity to be free from oppression through prevention, intervention, and restoration programs.

How do we fulfill our Vision and Mission?
  • Education – hold educational trainings in local elementary and junior high schools where students can learn the dangers of internet-based exploitation, personal rights against inappropriate touch and abuse, and how to protect themselves and their friends.

  • Child Advocacy Center – is privileged to run the Child Advocacy Centre Phuket, which is an inter-organizational entity that fights for the rights of children at risk of abuse or exploitation and provides case support through victim-focused forensic interviews.

  • Outreach – Building trust is a long process in Thai culture, and it is especially difficult among those who have significant trauma in their lives, like many if not most of the people who work in the bars here. We want to remove as many barriers in the way of trust as possible, so FFI values conducting relational outreach initiatives

  • International Repatriation – We provide care and emotional support during the process of international repatriation of international exploitation cases.

  • Vocational Training Programs – The FFI Vocational Training Program provides a thorough and intensive ten-month education in the hair styling and baking industries. The students also come together for classes in discipleship, English, and life skills. We desire our students to be as prepared as possible to thrive in a dignified career and to take good care of themselves and their families.

  • Safe House & Foster Care – We provide safe living arrangements for our students and support the Thai government in developing a foster care program in South Thailand.
