Our Sweet Swedes
Making a difference now in Thailand are four Swedish students from the Mid-Sweden University in Ostersund. Last month, Hanna, Mari, Ida and Ellinor started their three-month social work internship with CTM at the Emergency Home. They had a variety of experiences there ranging from teaching kids and older children swimming, helping at the children’s centre with the care of the little ones, teaching English for kids as well as the older residents of the home, teaching guitar to the teens and having fun dancing routines with the HIV ladies. If that wasn’t all, the girls also had their ‘training’ in caring for babies in the nursery and talking with professional social workers there. After three weeks at this protective shelter for abused women and children, the girls move on to Chiang Mai for a couple of weeks where they will work with the Foundation for Developing and Supporting Children, in orphanages and rural schools before another fortnight stint in Mae Sot with internally displaced people. We’ll catch up with them on this page, when they share their experiences from the north of Thailand! Keep checking in with this FB page for more news of the Swedish service sojourn in Thailand!
