Underpinning our vision and mission are core Christian beliefs and principles which significantly shape who we are and how we operate.

We live and work with poor people – many have little or no hope for the future. Despite the many challenges, we believe God has called us to improve the conditions of life for people who have been suffering. Done well, our work changes lives and alleviates suffering. Everything we do starts with prayer.

One Thousand Villages was founded by Justin Whitecross. Justin was inspired to serve the most vulnerable people in Thailand and across the Mekong countries, and it remains our mission and our focus today.

We would love to hear from you. Feel free to contact us.
