How has Peace Corps helped build connections between Americans and the people of Thailand ?

The services of peace Corps in Thailand has covered various fields of work over the years. Most of Thai engage in rural areas and Peace Corps volunteers has played their roles actively in the activities of health, education, environment, agriculture as well as promoting community participation. Therefore, there can be no doubt that through such activities and friendships would build good connections between Americans and the people of Thailand. Those volunteers has demonstrated capacities to mobilize the talents and energies of the Thais in pursuing the common good. Peace Corps' dedication to improve the quality of life of the Thai people are profoundly appreciated in the hearts and minds of them.

What has been the impact of Peace Corps on your life?

At present, I am serving the Department of Agricultural Extension as the Deputy Director-General responsible for extension and training. I had worked alongside Peace Corps volunteers on agriculture and rural development aiming to the solution of poverty alleviation for years. Experiences gaining from such collaborations are beneficial and valuable for my career as well as for the relationship between the two countries.

The impact of Peace Corps on my life is not only fruitful experiences for my career but also for the benefits of technology and development in the pursuit of prosperity for the Thai people.
