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 1

It is very important to initiate reading readiness at an early stage. Carol has been training 30 high school students to read (in Thai, and later in English) to pre-school students (dek deks). The program was enthusiastically received by the pre-school teachers who have very few supplies. Through a grant, Carol purchased a box full of books for the students. The high school students are also teaching ABC's to the students. Several other pre-schools learned about the project and want it initiated in their schools. Carol has declined only because of limited accessibility (and time) ---- however, the wheels are turning!
