This blog is brought to you by Jack Simpson, a “farang” volunteer at Opportunity Foundation in Thailand. I am not always in country, but whether I am or not I will try to keep you up to date on what is happening at our new foundation and in Nang Rong city. I also hope to have our foundation staff as well as other board members contribute as they are able.
Already contributing is Walai Jantawiboon, head of social work for Opportunity Foundation. Previous to getting her masters in social work from Baylor University in Texas, Walai worked more than fifteen years with various NGO’s and relief organizations in Thailand.
I’ll be talking about trips we take in Thailand, whether to Bangkok or a beach resort. When I go anywhere else in Southeast Asia, I’ll tell you about that also. Myanmar is one common destination, related to my work in the Nargis Library Recovery project. I’ll also talk about travel in Cambodia. I hope to get to Laos soon, when I do I’ll let you know.
Links in the text can take you interesting places. In the Myanmar posts several text links take you to YouTube videos showing interesting things we have seen.
