Follow along the journey as 10 Shook associates travel to GROW (Grace Refuge Outreach Worldwide)’s campus in Wiang Pa Pao, Thailand! Founded in Wooster, Ohio, GROW owns and operates a mission located in northern Thailand to rescue at-risk children, restore their broken lives, and equip them to impact their families and communities. Though GROW recently expanded, they are again at capacity and are in need of an additional girls’ home to be able to take in more children. In February 2024, Shook will send 10 employees to work alongside the organization's local contractor to help construct the new home, which will house 12 children who have been rescued from trafficking.
