Purpose/Mission: Asian Children’s Mission promotes justice and Jesus for the women and children of Southeast Asia. Primarily working in Burma, Asian Children’s Mission operates primary and middle schools in villages that would otherwise have no schools, provides training for Sunday school leaders, operates two children’s homes and is involved in a wide variety of community development activities ranging from safe water projects to the installation of rice mills.
The care, protection and education of vulnerable children in Myanmar (Burma) is the primary mission of Asian Children’s Mission. They practice holistic Christian ministry where they do not make a false distinction between the spiritual and physical needs of children. The work with children is specifically expressed in educational initiatives, orphan care and community development. Joana Jones is the director of ACM.
