Thailand with Integrated Tribal Development Program (ITDP)

Hill Tribes of Northern Thailand
5 million people in Hill Tribes
17% Evangelical (20% Christian)
Language: Karen

Integrated Tribal Development Program (ITDP), based out of Chiang Mai, is a well-established and respected organization working with hill tribe villages of northern Thailand. The team will support projects ITDP is pursuing to continue to develop relationships in the hill tribe villages, including water sanitation projects, construction, medical clinics and children’s ministries. Trips will be formed around the needs of the long-term team serving there and the skills of the short-term team going.

Winter 2015/2016 marked our ninth Exposure Trip to Thailand. The team joined ITDP staff and villagers to continue work on a dormitory building for the elementary school. In Chiang Mai, the team traveled to historical and spiritual sites to see the very real and present idol worship, considering the implications for missions and in their own lives.
