Yao Assistant Director and Bethel Housemother
Yao was born into a poor Buddhist and animist family, deeply in debt. When she graduated primary school, her parents could not afford to send Yao to secondary school; besides, as a girl she was considered not important enough to invest in her further education. Providentially, Yao was the only girl in her primary school who received a scholarship from the work that would become GMFT.
After secondary school Yao attended Bible College to gain a Biblical understanding of how to help the poor and underprivileged. She is passionate about protecting children from exploitation and has worked at GMFT for more than nine years.
Yao serves as Assistant Director of GMFT and housemother of Bethel House. She will complete her Open University degree in English in 2014.
