I have been accepted into International Student Volunteers!
The specific volunteering I am hoping to do is the Children's Program:
"Some children in Thailand face very difficult futures, at risk from human trafficking, child labor, poverty, lack of education, malnutrition, drug addiction and more. Orphaned, disadvantaged, and abandoned children need protection, education, healthy nutrition and of course, love and nurturing."
or the Community Development Program:
"People from hill tribe and refugee communities, often do not have the same rights as Thai people; many are marginalized and disadvantaged, with limited access to medical care, education and other government social services. Additionally, many Thai people still survive on subsistence agriculture and fishing in the most remote parts of the country. The wealth and development of Thailand’s cities and tourist areas often hides these realities. Rural and remote communities continue to lack basic infrastructure, and ISV is motivated in our work to partner with local organizations that are giving a voice to these communities and helping build their communities sustainably."
Of course these programs are wildly expensive, but the total I have listed is including airfare and the program's cost.
It would mean a lot to me for any amount of money! Even a dollar or ten or twenty would help me get there!
(also there are elephants there, so yeah)
