Project: Promote Peaceful and Inclusive Societies for Sustainable Development Providing Access to Justice for All and Building Effective, Accountable and Inclusive Institutions at All Levels #Thailand

Promote Peaceful and Inclusive Societies for Sustainable Development Providing Access to Justice for All and Building Effective, Accountable and Inclusive Institutions at All Levels by Parin Charoenchanaporn. Facing the problem of the huge differences between cities and rural areas, she wants to improve the life standards in the rural areas, using local and international volunteers, who are going to live with local families and exchange their knowledge, culture and language. The aim is the community development using sustainable ways. This is what she did so far and what the ones involved think about it:

“During two weeks, I did many activities such as planted the rice, did handcrafting like sewing pillows and key chains, learnt Thai cooking and trekked through the woods. More importantly, I got a chance to be an English teacher.” – Thanyatorn Maneejak

“Children are kind and naive, their world is so simple. Maybe we are giving some knowledge to students, but 
actually we will realize that we learn from them how to improve ourselves. For 2 weeks, I have understood that it wasn’t a teacher/students relationship that I was building, I was trying to break the wall and build bridges, to be as close as possible from them. We were working together in English. They have taught me how to enjoy little things in life, and  I’m proud that I was a part of their growth.” – Stephane Chen

“I had learned northern culture and I was so impressive with its simplicity here. Another was precious friendship I had never thought that I will receive from this camp. Real families occurred in the camp because we had spent long time together in the early morning until the night. Importantly, I was really glad to give opportunity to local children since I am from the capital city of Thailand and I usually felt I get better things more than them. The last thing, I felt more eager and useful because I used my potential through activities from the camp I had never been in school before. I will never forget the great experience in my life and keep on doing things that are beneficial to people who need it. «Never get tired of doing little things for others sometimes those occupy the biggest part of their hearts.»”

“I have spent two incredible weeks in Thailand. I fell in love with this place, I love the food and people here. They are very nice, kind and polite. In the part of volunteering it was very a international group and I loved it. I would like to say thank you to all of them that they made my work camp unforgettable. Now I am very happy because I had the possibility to know a lot of important things about Thai culture . I really like the way that Thai people interact with foreigners. They show me how they are respect to foreigner and I loved teaching Thai children, they are very cute and excited because they want to learn something different from their culture. in the end , I can say that I will remember this experience for the rest of my life. Thanks Parin, R, my mother and father for their patience and kindness and also thanks to the rest of volunteers. I love them all.” – Matia Fassi
