2007 Ban Pha Mon community library project, Thailand Victoria Junior College

    40 students and 4 teachers from Victoria Junior College spent 9 exciting days providing service learning to a Blue Hmong hill tribe village in Northern Thailand.

    The main project was to provide build a community cum library building for the 51 households of 280 Blue Hmong population in Ban Pha Mon. A linear settlement of 41 thatched and zinc roofed wooden houses, the villagers' main income is from subsistence farming, rearing domestic livestock and working at the Royal Thai Project. They do not have a communal area where they could get together to discuss on important village issues. The community cum library building provides a place for them to read up on the latest development on agriculture and for discussions.

    Construction work starts on the second day and was completed even though there was heavy rain for 2 days. On the last night in the village, there was performances from both the participants and the villagers. They also light up air lanterns to celebrate. After the participants descend from the mountain village, they went to visit the elephant camp, sat on elephant and ride on the bamboo raft. On the last night, they also hosted a dinner for an orphanage and share many happy sessions with them.
