yes.gif I work for a charity called Generation Journey,(w)ww.generation-journey.org The thailand part of the website is still under new re-development but in summary, we are forming a community on the Burmese border for those displaced and disadvantaged in the town of Sangkhlaburi.

We have been developing this project for 2 years and have had to overcome many obstacles, but the rains are finishing and the first residents will be able to move to the village this year.

Our aim is to make this a self-sustaining community, that works to integrate the young and old, sharing youth and wisdom in harmony.

Why do I tell you this??

I depart for Sangkhlaburi for a year on 26th October. I desperately need to link with willing workers in order for the community to develop further.

We have a 12 month building programme, farming, Solar power energy installations, community care to include caring for elderly, teaching english to children and monthly projects for the youth and elderly to engage.

Are you able to assist or point me in the direction of an organisation or individual that would suit Generation Journeys objectives. We have previously had volunteers working in the village though this has very much been ad-hoc as they have found us. We would really hope to this year, actively recruit workers to what promises to be a challenging but fulfilling envirnoment.

Best Regards

Tom Brady
