Our new Teen Center is shovel ready!
The Breakthrough Thailand team is preparing the ground to build a teen living and learning center in a rural village of Thailand’s Khon Kaen province. The center will facilitate additional programming in prevention of sexual exploitation in one of Thailand’s most vulnerable regions, including residential teen discipleship, alternative education and skills training.
Proposed Start Date: July 2014
Total Construction Budget: US$145,000
Estimated Completion Date: February 2015
We need your help!
Achieving our goal of the February 2015 move-in date is dependent on the financial gifts of people like YOU! Interested in helping the center become a reality?

Need & Use of Space
The Breakthrough family has quickly outgrown its makeshift quarters in a single-bedroom home of one of the founding staff. Recognizing opportunities to increase the quality of education and programming offered both to the residential teens as well as other at-risk teens in the village and surrounding areas, the Breakthrough team is seeking to expand facilities in the local village through the construction of a Breakthrough Teen Center.
The Teen Center will facilitate the following forward-looking goals:
1) Provide a safe, healthy and modest living and learning environment for residential teens
Living quarters – including sleeping, cooking, eating, washing and studying – for up to 15 residential teens, house parents and staff/volunteers
2) Provide a positive “living room” environment for residential and village youth
Community center including library, computer/study room, music room, game area, coffee shop/marketplace, sport court and gardens
3) Increase quantity and quality of educational services and skills training provided
Convertible classroom and work space, library and hands-on skills training through agriculture, gardening, metal-working or other enterprises
