BECOMING A STRATEGIC PARTNER WITH OTS

In the last 20 years, OTS has been blessed with many donors and sponsors from the Hmong Christian community around the word, primarily the first Hmong generation from Laos who have contributed enormously to support OTS vision and mission.  Through many prayers and financial contributions, OTS has been able to provide education, health, emergency relief and economic development projects to help families in poverty in Asia.  We have laid the foundation and build trusts with the people in the fields.  At our 20th Year Celebration, we are calling the young people, professionals, business owners, philanthropists, teachers, doctors, Lawyers, Christian Workers, men and women from all walk of life to help us build an infrastructure for OTS to impact the lives of those we touch in Asia by becoming a strategic partner with our organization. Our goal is to raise $225,000 to support the “Priority Projects” as determined by the Board of Directors of OTS.  The fund will enable these projects to achieve sustainability and transform a generation of people.      

Through your partnership, we are confident that can accomplish the followings:

  • Create a generation of educated Hmong Christian workers and leaders in Asia
  • Empower men and women through family and economic development programs, through a Christ-Centered approach
  • Create opportunities for volunteers to engage, contribute, and provide resources to support the projects
  • Gain both spiritual and personal life changing experiences for the volunteers.

Please make your contributions today!
