In this issue: Facebook | Twitter | YouTube | Community Editor’s greetings Season’s Greetings, Happy New Year 2010 was a year of turbulence in many places around the world, not least Thailand, our home country. Let’s hope 2011 will be a good year, for all, especially the less privileged. As for Openminded volunteers, they now have more opportunities. They can volunteer in Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, and Nepal in education, child/health care projects as well as eco projects. As a volunteer you can select to stay at volunteer houses in Nongkhai (at our training center) or Krabi, Thailand, or with a host family, in a national park or live independently in a town or village. Next year we plan to offer several options on how to volunteer, which we will come back to in the New Year! OMP started with putting computers in two orphan homes and a small village at a home where children could come to play and learn. This year Mae Sot and the Burmese migrant/refugee children are in our focus.
