Meet Kim Ai.

  • Wants to support herself and complete her studies.

Kim Ai is a lovely, energetic and hard working 18-years old girl. She loves to sing and study the word of God. When she was two years old, her mother died. Her father could not take care of her so she stayed with her relatives. From a young age, she had to do chores all day. She was at risk of being sent to a brothel. Five years ago, she was taken to a shelter, however she was not trained for a living. So a few years later, to provide for herself, she started working in karaoke bars to drink beer with clients. She ate only one meal a day and consumed a lot of alcohol. A month ago, a missionary found her and took her in. She changed so much when God’s words touched her heart. She would like to study to become a teacher or a pastor helping the poor and bringing people to Jesus Christ.

  • How she got started in this livelihood project:

A missionary who served the Vietnamese in Cambodia saw the poverty and destitution of Vietnamese people and brought her awareness of the need of education and training skills for children, youth and adults. She connected with Work of Your Hand for the greeting card project. Kim Ai is one of the youth involved in this project. This greeting card project will help her receive a fair wage, support herself for basic needs and allow her to continue her studies.

  • May 2013 Update:

Unfortunately, due to personal circumstances, Kim Ai is no longer making cards for WYH and has moved back to Phnom Penh. Please pray for Kim Ai, and that she would continue to seek Christ.
