Founder.

Justin is very passionate about helping disadvantaged people. 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 is very committed to serving those around him, and his wife, Rattana, plays a big role in this. Justin and Rattana have three daughters.

Justin’s work on sexual violence, trafficking and sexualisation of girls in Thailand began in 1996. He has cultivated countless relationships and alliances across the region with many local and international groups and developed strategic projects, community networks and philanthropic partnerships in support of projects that reduce poverty and achieve sustainable development.

On a larger scale, Justin spends countless hours examining the complexities and challenges facing nonprofits and groups countering structural and systematic causes of poverty. Justin supports many organisations and networks, helping them to build networks and linkages to achieve the best results.

Justin is a very effective communicator and speaks across the region on a range of issues. Connect with Justin on Facebook or Twitter.
