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.

Community Learning Center Update

Thanks to many people who donated to our PCPP grant on the Peace Corps website, the "CLC" is beginning to take shape. Five computers, tables, chairs, and storage cabinets have been purchased. In addition, two air-conditioning units (a rarity in rural Thailand schools) were purchased by a catholic priest who saw the center and was very impressed. English learning programs are being installed on the computers to facilitate language acquisition. Games that foster logical thinking have also been purchased. The next purchase is a set of bookshelves and display shelf that will house easy-to-read English books and pamphlets and books (in Thai) that give information about HIV/AIDS, post-secondary training options and career opportunities.
