In the early days of Asian Children’s Mission, Joana was frequently asked to help found or fund more orphanages. This was not a sustainable strategy for a small non-profit, so Joana began to research alternatives. She soon realized that healthy families who live in thriving communities can feed, protect and educate their own children, so a move towards Community Development began.
