Our Story Begins in Thailand

With a family who had very little, but a powerful story to share
In 2011, Stephanie David was led up a dirt path to discover a family that devoted their lives to reviving the elephant population in Thailand. Rescuing elephants from harsh labor and captivity, the family had the difficult task of raising and breeding elephants on their humble farm. On the day she visited their farm, Stephanie witnessed the birth of a baby elephant – a rare occurrence. In the morning, the baby barely knew how to stand; by the afternoon, it was making laps around its mother. That day made an impact on Stephanie, and she found herself sharing their story with her friends and family to this day.
