The Zheng Zhu student center is in the border town of Tachileik, between Thailand and Myanmar. Since 2020, schools in Myanmar have been closed due to the pandemic. At the student center, the pastors and staff continue to educate the children there. Support this project with financial contributions and prayer.
Student centers are an important ministry in the Golden Triangle region. Children from poor families in the mountainous regions must live in the city to go to school. These children receive the opportunity for better education, health care, and social interaction through this project. They also gradually learn essential life skills through their interactions with other children and adults. Students are shown the love of God through the care and teaching of full-time staff and volunteers. Pandemic school closures spurred the need to adapt.
With growing unrest in Myanmar and the pressures of the pandemic, safety and limited resources were of concern. The team learned to grow vegetables to reduce costs and travel to reduce the cost of living. Students could also learn new skills while growing fresh and organic vegetables to aid in nutrition for their growth.
