RYS-Thailand builds an Orphanage and Day Care

Participants: 40 Nations Represented: 4

Southern Thailand—Based on the success of the first Thailand RYS project a second project, was designed and implemented from April 1st to the 13th. Whereas the first project was in the North, the second was carried out in the South and brought participants from all regions of the nation.

Work: Participants helped in the building of an orphanage and day care center at the monastery of Abbot, Phra Buddhadasa.

Summary: This was the second national project and served to demonstrate how the RYS can play a role in providing a model of religious cooperation in a nation where service programs are frequent. This project brought the RYS to a famous monastery and involved participants from nearby Malaysia. At the Suanmokpalaram Temple the Ven. Buddhads's birthday celebration brought over 100 monks. The vice-governor presided over the dedication ceremony.
