GSC Expansion and Other News
New Office in Tanzina New Offices In Tanzania
Please help us in welcoming our Tanzania team into their new offices in Arusha! After a frenzy of last minute packing they settled down into their new buildings in late April. The new offices are located on two fertile green acres and bordered by the Themi River and an old growth eucalyptus forest to the east. The offices have an incredible view to the west of Mt. Meru (especially wonderful at night as the sun sets over its majestic peak). The complex is safeguarded by two night guards and contains the administration offices, program coordinator and director’s offices, reception room, a kitchen, and trainers’ offices.

Wat where our volunteers stay Thailand Buddhist Immersion Program
With GSC you can choose to volunteer with our Buddhist Immersion Teaching English Program in Rajburi Province, Thailand. The program takes place within a beautifully landscaped 33-acre park-like wat complex. The various marble walkways, bridges and temples are speckled by the brilliant orange-red robes of monks going about their daily routines. Each morning you will begin your day amid the blissful silence of the wat as you prepare to teach English to novice and senior monks as well as local community members. In between your teaching activities you will have the opportunity to meditate and reflect by the cool still waters of the meandering lakes and streams that frame the vivid white marble temples on the complex grounds.

Orphans in Cambodia Our NEW HIV/AIDS and Drug Prevention Education and Other Cambodia Programs
We are very excited about the June launch of our Cambodian HIV/AIDS and Drug Abuse Prevention Education Program. Our program will be working with secondary schools and local NGOs in and around the beautiful and historic capitol city of Phnom Penh. The program will build on the best practices of our 15 years of HIV/AIDS prevention education work in E. Africa and our recent work in Thailand. While Cambodia has reduced the incidence of HIV/AIDS in the adult population, there is very little prevention education being provided to youths. Local schools and NGOs have asked us to add the drug abuse prevention component to our work. We already have several well qualified volunteers registered for the program launching in June including a registered nurse and an alumni of our Tanzania program.
