An empowerment ministry in Thailand for underprivileged children and young people from Burma. They are given a place to live in a family community, sent to a local migrant school, discipled in their faith and taught age appropriate leadership and small business skills. The goal is to help them be ready to return to Burma to provide leadership and train others in their communities.
IDP stands for Internally Displaced Peoples. IDP camps in Burma exist where people have been driven from their original communities and are living on the run. Camps of families set up in the woods and jungles trying to live a normal life as they hide from military/government forces. They are in continual fear of discovery and losing their lives and families. IDP camps do not have outside support from humanitarian aid organizations. They do not have formal schools and have little way to produce food and supplies. SGM provides humanitarian aid when a new camp forms, to help them get started. SGM also provides supplies to help start a school and a church.
