Thus, the idea to start a social enterprise that provided small, home-based stitching jobs to needy girls and single mothers who are unemployed or unable to work outside the home. 
In 2009, a dedicated work space was created for the women within the Living Waters Home. Thus, NAAM was able to help more women and create a wider range of products.

Their Stories

At the age of 13, D was brought in illegally as a child labor from a neighboring country. Moving from job to job, her last work was at a pub/restaurant. It was there that she was being taken advantage of & sexually abused by men. Until one day, she came to Living Waters Home to learn English. 

“Livingwaters shared the truth about life and saved me from falling into deeper pit. Now, I can read English and am producing key chain holders to earn a decent living” (Year 2010) Today, D continues her studies while helping out at Living Waters. 

M was not raised well and was spoiled as a child. At age 15, she had a relationship with a powerful man. When the man left, she was devastated and tried, unsuccessfully, to take her own life. Having lost everything and no one to turn to, she turned to Su for help. 

Today, M serves at Living Waters and writes her own worship songs. She shares God stories and encourage the many guests at Living Waters, many of whom comes from distant villages seeking treatment in Chiangmai General Hospital.

After joining Living Waters, D shared her experiences & challenged N, her auntie. N comes from a neighbouring country. She was forced into marriage by her distant relative at a young age. After giving birth to her son, she was not allowed to leave their rented room nor given any money. From a chubby girl, today, she weighs just 36kg. After much persuasion from D, N decided to seek a job at Living Waters. We took her in as a maid and gave her sewing skills & a job with NAAM. It was a long journey before she came to follow Christ.
Even as her husband continues to persecute her, N has stood her ground and today, she is able to send her son to school without the support of her husband.
