What did I do while I was there???? Before I forget most of it, I will tell you.
Firstly I worked with four USA volunteers that come from North Carolina. They were with us for a couple of weeks teaching to a school about an hour from Chiang Rai town. So I looked after them and went to school with them each day and helped them out. In the middle weekend, we did a trip to Baan Yafu also with the first of the Oxford group, which gave me a chance to chat to them.
After the USA guys left, I had a meeting with the 1st Oxford group to see how things were going
Then I stayed in Mirror Foundation and worked on the computer - meeting with a Dutch company called Kommando, writing up a proposal for a competition to get funding, talking to Jazz for Peace - who said they'd do a concert or two in benefit of us, but have since been very quiet, helping Thellie organise and write a newsletter for Mirror Foundation, and other stuff.
Oh, Ken, a volunteer from Antipodeans came and I looked after him, although mainly the Thai staff took him to school each day. Lindsey from England came and I asked her to produce a guide to teaching for volunteers - she did an excellent job and did some other stuff also. Simon and Annette - a couple from Australia came and I got them producing some promotional/explanation videos for us.
I have probably forgot some stuff, but that is the sort of things I have been involved with in the 45 days. Feels good that we have got a lot achieved in that time and a number of other things are coming along. So a good but tiring time.
Thanks for all the help of the great group of volunteers.
