Ark International is an integrated ministry of Youth With A Mission Perth as well as YWAM Thailand. We are an international body defending the rights of children at risk, restoring dignity as children of God while developing their unique gifts and skills. Our mission is to educate, train and facilitate ministry in South East Asia region focusing on the specific need for children at risk. This is done in the following ways:

1. Children at Risk

 Currently we visit several slum communities in surrounding areas, Bangkok,  during the week. Visits are time well spent as relationships are built not only with the children but essential family support is developed.

  •  Simple health care training programs teach children and youth healthy living, nutrition, hygiene and life development.
  •  English programs teach the English language and Western culture to enable them to emerge into higher education programs and travelling opportunities.
  •  We run a rugby camp in association with X-treme Sports every weekend called Nak Suu Rugby Academy. The goal of Nak Suu Rugby Academy is to have a lasting impact in the lives of young people through rugby training and life skill development; building trust, hope, self-esteem and courage to help them create a better future.
  • Vehicles are hired to pick up under-priviledged children in neighboring slum communities to participate in the Rugby Academy activities. Activities include rugby drills, training and practice games which are lead and instructed by rugby coaches, English programs, healthcare and simple bible teachings. Nak Suu as a program nurtures and develops the wholistic child; mentally, spiritually, physically and emotionally.


2. Training and Networking

Our focus in training will be to equip and train workers, develop structures and programs and run training seminars in specialized areas. We target Non-government Organizations (NGO’s), Foundations, Government Structures, Churches & family units to address their specific need. Currently Ark International is a member of the San Jai Coalition Network in Thailand , working together with other agencies to utilize and share resources, knowledge and skills.

3. Counselling and Education

We educate staff workers to equip them with effective counseling tools for children at risk. Our desire is to train workers to counsel children at risk and ultimately see children’s lives transformed and succeed despite their disadvantages. January 2011, we are excited to host a Children At Risk Discipleship Training School. Topics include: Evangelism, Missions, The Character and Nature of God, Relationships, and God’s Father Hea
