The People Behind
Our organization – based in Thailand
Global Experience is a non governmental organization based in Thailand. Thai-Experience.org is our website for volunteering in Thailand.
Our network is constantly growing and reaching out to the neighboring countries. We support local organizations and projects because we believe strongly that this is the best way to enable them to help themselves in the future.
Coming from different cultural backgrounds, tolerance and curiosity for different frames of reference are our strength. We are not bound by any religion, ideology or political party as this would limit our work. We work in favor of people with less opportunities, mainly poor children, disabled people and village women.
Our idea is to enable people from all over the world to get in touch with others. To meet, share experiences and help each other. By providing this basis we create a win-win situation for all parties involved.
There are many people with many talents, special knowledge and valuable experiences willing to share while others are in need of some support. We help them find each other.
The idea was born 2002 when Sabine Lindemann, a volunteer in projects in Australia, Thailand and Germany met Kanokwon Sookserm. Both were involved in volunteer activities and convinced that volunteering is a great opportunity, for volunteers in their personal development and also locals by receiving support and attention from the outside world.
After so much time, we finally decided to reach out to other countries. And we needed a new name, Thai-Experience worked fine while we were present only in one country, but with recent developments, Thai-Experience is now part of Global Experience, our newly formed association registered in Thailand to work globally.Share this: Twitter | StumbleUpon | Facebook | Delicious | digg | reddit | buzz
