Hello everyone! I am wanting to go to Thailand in May, 2014. The trip goes from May 2-26. I am going to be going with other students from Westminster College. This is a service learning project that is offered to students who are getting their Bachelor's Degree in Public Health, and since that is what I am doing I feel that this will be a great last hoo-ray and experience for me to have before I graduate in June. :)
The focus of going to Thailand will be to explore concepts in global citizenship and responsibility in the 21st century by understanding the educational, health and developmental needs of rural Thai citizens as well as indigenous populations through cultural immersion and active participation in service projects designed to provide benefits to the local peoples.
I will participate in service projects in two distinct rural Thai villages, one near the Burmese border in Mae Sot, and one in the rural Northeast near Khon Kaen, that will help alleviate some of the health, educational and developmental issues present, while staying with local families within the villages. Some other activities I will do include tours of historically significant sites in Thailand, sightseeing in Bangkok as well as spending a day with Burmese refugee children at a refugee school and visiting an HIV/AIDS hospice.
I am so excited to get to do this and thank you in advance to all of you that are able to donate, every little bit will help and you all are awesome :) Also, if you would like me to bring you something back please let me know.
