The children of TRee of Life Orphanage Buriram Thailand


Roger Walker founded Tree of Life Christian Children's Center and Orphanage in early 1998 and currently serve as Resident Director and Center Manager of the facility.

“The dream of the orphanage began in July 1989. While standing on a small rice field , I saw a vision of a building with lots of children running in and out. I was so overcome with feelings of warmth and love, unlike anything I had ever experienced before. I envisioned a home for our family and orphaned children in Buriram, Thailand. In August 1990, the beginning of the construction of a new home. Over the next seven years, while living in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain, UAE, we continued construction as funds became available. On January 1, 1998, we arrived at last in Thailand and took up residence in our home. Less than one year later, on November 22, 1998, our home officially became a haven for orphans, abandoned and indigent children from throughout Thailand. Tree of Life Christian Children's Center and Orphanage (TOLO) had begun.”

Tree of Life endeavors to provide a loving home, spiritual encouragement, as well as education opportunities for all the children in residence. All residents have living relatives that are either unwilling or unable to provide care for them, which prevents them from being legally adopted. Therefore, most children who come to Tree of Life, regardless of age, will most likely continue in residence  until they complete their University degrees. The orphanage thus becomes a permaent home for its residents.

TOLO Buriram relies completely on the freewill offerings and generosity of donors from around the world. Please consider becoming one of our regular prayer intercessory and financial partners in this endeavor.  Full, half or partial sponsorship of the children is needed.
