Volunteer Experience

Surin, Thailand (June-Jul 2004)

Singapore International Foundation

Participated in a Learning and Cultural Exchange Program in Surin, Thailand. The main purpose was to raise funds and assist in the building a school library to be shared by the children of 4 villages. Fund raising started in Singapore via a pre-own item donation drive after which the proceeds from the sale of these items were used to buy the building materials. In Thailand itself we were physically involved in putting together the library from ground up. Spare time was used on sharing of our experience and run a "Learn to Speak English" camp for university students from Cambodia and Thailand.
