Global PACT Thailand May 22 to June 18, 2010
If you are not afraid of rolling up your sleeves and getting your hands dirty, eating food you can’t pronounce and waking up to night sounds you can’t identify, Global PACT Thailand is for you. This Training program is not for the faint of heart or the "for-credit" tourist. There will be no clubs and no dancing till dawn. You will not spend your down time baking on the beach or shopping for silks and cheap electronics. Global PACT Thailand is a “full-contact” cross-cultural program in development. Accommodations are provided at a resort dedicated to stopping the AIDS epidemic in Thailand. Participants walk through rice paddies to interview farmers about their needs, listen to mothers talk about their dreams for their children's futures, dress and behave in keeping with local customs.
Global PACT South Africa CANCELED
DUE TO SCHEDULING CONFLICTS WITH THE WORLD CUP OF FOOTBALL, WE HAVE BEEN FORCED TO CANCEL GPACT-SOUTH AFRICA 2010. WE APOLOGIZE TO ALL THE DISAPPOINTED PARTICIPANTS. PLEASE CONSIDER ANOTHER GPACT PROGRAM OR INTERNSHIP. WHY NOT THAILAND?
What does it take to forge social change in South Africa? How do you confront issues as overwhelming as apartheid and its aftermath, poverty, crime, unemployment, clean water, racism, environmental degradation and AIDS, to name just a few? Which tough choices do you make when investing for the future?
Global business people, diplomats, aid officials, and employees of international organizations deal with these issues on a daily basis. But where will you get the knowledge, skills and attitudes to take on these issues? By joining Global PACT, you'll discover the fundamentals of social-change start-up and management by beginning a new project in South Africa through a unique partnership with Global PACT and Rhodes University.
