JESS initiates, supports, encourages, or collaborates with people, organizations, institutions, of all religions, in areas which contribute to the betterment of society and the quality of life. We initially started with an emphasis in the prevention of children (mostly girls) being taken to the exploitation and commercialization of the sex Industry, and continue to do so by way mostly of scholarships.We also develop good relations with other Asian peoples, like Japan, Cambodia, Myanmar, etc. Most of the projects and programs are small and medium range. JESS continue to develop contacts, keeping our eyes and hearts open, being particularly sensitive to the needs and sufferings, joys and hopes, of the poor ones.

1) Networking. JESS supports peoples or local initiatives and organizations, and other organizations also support us. We work with the ASIAN HOUSE HIMEJI of Japan and with Mahidol University, Faculty of Medicine, of Bangkok.

2) Redistribute the wealth from the rich to the poor; from the urban to the rural in a simple manner. We take computers, typewriters, cloths, books, etc from donors in Bangkok to rural villages in Thailand, to rural Cambodia.

3. Identify and translate good books for children and youth with `values' from foreign languages (mostly Spanish) to Thai language. We have very good collaboration with some professors from the Department of Western Languages of Chula and Ram, and some time with university students overseas. We print the books, distribute them to the villagers. Sometimes we propagate good books for children and teachers.

4) Produce good videos, like THE CRY OF MY APPEAL. It shows the causes and effects of the sexual exploitation of children. The videos are available in Thai, English, Spanish, and Japanese languages. Now we are making a Thai version of a cartoon movie called FLOWERS WITHOUT FRONTIERS from Spainish language. It is about 'sharing' value. We have helped a Spanish NGO to produce a video on sexual exploitation of children by Spanish tourists. 

5) Attend national and international conferences related to our social work. We are always available for consultation.

6) On very special occasions we also take volunteers, or help volunteers to find a suitable work and place for their activities. We take and provide information, etc. for the use of others.

7) Support programs and activities for the rights and quality of life of women and children in rural areas and also among the hill tribes.
