Two in Thailand

After raising three children and watching them graduate from college, Bob and Carol decided to leave the educational field and pursue a dream that had been put on hold for 35 years (since graduationg from the University of Northern Iowa). "Two in Thailand" is the journal dedicated to that dream - to serve in the Peace Corps. This is a personal blog. The opinions expressed within do not necessarily represent the views of the Peace Corps or the United States Government.

Pii Sawn Nong Project

There is a pre-school near one of Carol's high schools that serves about 30 "dek-deks". The pre-school has a very limited budget and no books to promote reading-readiness. Carol wrote a grant to get books and supplies. She then enlisted 20 high school students to enroll in a class she created with the help of her c0-teacher, Mah, to serve the pre-schoolers. (Another service project!) The high school students meet on Tuesdays and prepare materials. Their first project is to create an ABC coloring book. On Thursdays, the high school students travel in a song-taao to read books in Thai and to teach the ABC's. In the second picture the high school students are introducing themselves to the pre-schoolers (dek-deks)
