Men live as families, communities, societies, and countries with diversity of ethnicity, habitat, religion, tradition and culture, resulting in difference in society, economy, education, religion, concept, value and development. This is because of no chance, lack of education and thorough development. So, there is social disparity and difference. This, accompanying with lack of religious moral and ethics to anchor the mind, carelessness and change of cultures, good traditions, thought and wrong values, causes several social problems, such as drug problem, human trafficking, labor migration, piracy, orphans, etc. The marginal people who is outreach in society are often affected by the said problems and lack of self-protection. Although the government and various sectors have protected and remedied all the time, but it is not thorough and adequate for the needs of those experiencing such social problems. If there is no proper and effective help, they will be more affected by the problems. Especially disadvantaged children and youths, they are the vulnerable group to be affected by the problems more than other groups.
With awareness of such problems and effects, the Daughters of Ruth Foundation was founded in 30 October 2007 as part of the society to cooperate with the relevant sectors to work for social welfare and development of children and youths who suffer from being orphans, parents in jail or prison, and children who are at risk of being trafficked, and so on. This is what their family cannot help.
1. Assisting where possible with care and support for young women who are risky to become victims of trafficking and social, economic and sexual exploitation.
2. Establishing an emergency child home.
3. Instilling core moral values and equipping young women with the necessary skills and knowledge for the world of work and family life.
4. Working with other NGO’s doing similar work to achieve a better outcome in helping young women who are risky to become victims of trafficking and social, economic and sexual exploitation.
5. Not being involved with political parties, their organizations or agents.
1. Helping girls who are suffering from family problems, having no parents and being risky to become victims of trafficking and social, economic and sexual exploitation. Providing the girls opportunities to have accomodations, safety, proper education, good health both physical and spiritual, and become a decent, educated and secure person eventually.
2. Establishing Daughters of Ruth Home as a center of protecting and educating these girls.
3. Instilling core moral values (loyalty, compassion, empathy, respect both for self and others, steadfastness, discipline, community mindedness, fairness, adaptability and resilience) and equipping young women with the necessary skills and knowledge for the world of work and family life.
4. Building networks/linkages among Daughters of Ruth Home and other NGO’s doing similar work.
