Bangkok, Thailand


During our seven weeks of working with Thai students in Bangkok and in a village on the Cambodian border, we developed eight informational brochures and six educational videos in Thai and English. These media help our sponsor, the Office of Her Royal Highness Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn's Projects, disseminate knowledge on sustainable development to educators throughout Asia. Through this project, all seven team members were introduced to working in an international environment. We learned how to effectively communicate in a multi-cultural setting by interacting with a diverse audience. Additionally, we explored global perspectives such as self-reliance and environmental awareness from a new point of view. As a result, we gained a greater appreciation and understanding of Thai culture.
