Kirsten Jade Rescue Centre provides a developmental pathway for orphaned, abandoned, abused and destitute children. A safe, nurturing home environment has been created with house parents where children learn manners, morals, values and responsibility.
Each child has access to nourishing food, quality education and life skills. In providing this home-like atmosphere and educational opportunities through to University or TAFE level, each child has an opportunity to reach their full potential. Ultimately every child who has benefitted from their experience at Kirsten Jade Rescue Centre will have opportunity to be able to positively give back to the community.
This project also helps two children’s villages in refugee camps on the Thailand/Myanmar border. Children in both centers have tragic stories and are living in the most difficult circumstances. By providing them with a loving home environment and quality education, they may recover from their traumatic past and move forwards to engage with opportunities available to them as political and economic change takes place.
