Founder.

Justin is very passionate about helping the most vulnerable people. He started in Thailand in 1995 and his faith and vision continue to drive the vision of One Thousand Villages.

Originally from Tweed Heads on the Gold Coast, Justin studied Theology and Psychology and worked in full-time ministry for many years before he felt called to serve in Southeast Asia. Justin built One Thousand Villages from scratch and he has created countless projects and community-based programs across Thailand, Myanmar and the lower Mekong.

Justin supports many organisations and networks across Southeast Asia, helping them to build networks and opportunities to achieve the best results. Justin is a very effective communicator and speaks across the region on a range of issues.

There is nothing Justin loves more than his family. Justin and his wife Rattana have three daughters. Justin and Rattana bring very deep personal commitment to their work.
