Thailand has a culture that is quite simply put intoxicating, however, also one that has been heavily impacted by a large influx of tourism. On this program escape the well traveled islands and experience a way of life more indicative of typical Thai culture.

I worked with GVI as a volunteer every summer from 2006 to 2012 and had the opportunity to take part in most inspiring projects where GVI is promoting community development and sustainable livelihoods. Although GVI has been involved in different projects in different continents, all of them were designed to be holistic and focus on people’s needs and resources. This integrated conception of development caught my attention from the beginning, and has taught me that education sits at the center of all efforts to enhance the resilience of fragile communities all over the world.
