Spend Your December Holidays with GSC in Thailand!
We have scheduled our December Thailand Program start dates to accommodate families, students and older adults. If you are a student, spend you winter vacation providing aid to underprivileged communities. If you have a significant other, celebrate the New Year with GSC in Thailand. If you have a family, immerse your children in Thai culture and have them join you as you share your gifts of knowledge and experience to those in need. Placements are available in all our programs. Make this holiday season a special time to remember!

Tanzania Program Development
GSC is proud to announce the hiring of Erwin Kinsey as the Director of Operations in Tanzania. Erwin is a native of Vermont and began his international career in 1977 as a dairy advisor for Heifer Project International in the Southern Highlands of Tanzania. He soon thereafter became the Heifer Tanzania Representative and then Director. He has lived in Arusha, Tanzania since 1981, raising three sons and being active in the local community. Erwin speaks fluent Kiswahili (sometimes having a hard time thinking in English!) and brings a wealth of experience to the GSC Tanzania program from his thirty years with Heifer in Tanzania. GSC-TZ is expanding our HIV/AIDS and sustainable agriculture training in the rural communities of Tanzania and other African countries. Erwin’s experience in Tanzania and throughout Africa will provide an even stronger foundation to our already experienced Tanzania staff. Erwin joins Program Director Deborah Wafer, MPH, MD, In-Country Coordinator Frida Lauwo, and Youth Program Coordinator Jenaya Rockman, MPH (?) in assisting with the expansion of the GSC program in Africa. We are delighted to have Erwin aboard!

Introducing the New Thailand International Health Program
GSC’s International Health Internship and Long-Term Volunteer Program provides a unique opportunity for pre-medical and medical students to shadow and for health professionals to assist Thai doctors and health professionals in clinic and hospital settings. In the past, volunteer participants have observed everything from live births to brain surgery! In addition to shadowing, program participants now also take part in our new HIV/AIDS Prevention Education Program. Program participants teach HIV/AIDS prevention along with conversational English instruction to secondary school students as part of the GSC public health service program. As an International Health Program participant, you will be provided with an individualized placement in a health care facility based on your background and experience.

GSC’s 2007 Summer “English for Life” HIV/AIDS Prevention Camp: A Success!
In an effort to curb the recent increase in HIV/AIDS in Thailand, GSC Thailand in collaboration with the Teenpath project of the Bangkok based Programs for Appropriate Technology in Health (PATH), recently completed an “English for Life” (EFL) camp pilot program. EFL camps were presented in six different locations throughout Thailand during this past summer of 2007. EFL is a youth education program designed to provide both HIV/AIDS prevention and English training for Thai secondary school teachers and students. GSC is now expanding this program for Thailand program participants.

HIV/AIDS Prevention and English Education in Thai Schools

Following the success of our English for Life (EFL) Summer Camp pilot project, GSC has now launched our expanded HIV/AIDS Prevention and English Education Program. This EFL Program is designed to continue working with teachers and student participants of the 2007 summer EFL camps as well as share lessons learned with new schools in the Singburi region of Thailand.
