Joy Foundation Mission

​​Poverty alleviation and sustainable agriculture can be partners in development and provide strategies for clean water and healthy food to people regardless of race and religion.  

​​The Christian Foundation reaches out to poor communities in Thailand, S.E. Asia and around the world to increase the quality of life and restore good and healthy living. The key lies in sustainable agriculture and social and community development.
