Baan Unrak: House of Happiness - A Christmas to Remember

Date: Sunday, February 17th, 2002 Time: 2:00 PM - 5:00 PM

Speaker: Anne Cain, Chino High School

Anne Cain is an AET on the JET Program and has been teaching at Chino High School for the past six months. She is from the United States. Instead of going home for Christmas last year, she decided to do something different. She joined an international volunteer organization called GO M.A.D. (Make a Defference). Go M.A.D. is a web-based organization which seeks to aid small service projects around the world. This year GO M.A.D. organized a trip to an orphanage in Sangklaburi, Thailand. The orphanage is called Baan Unrak, meaning House of Happiness. It is run by two yogic nuns and is home to fifty children. GO M.A.D. spent one week at Baan Unrak and helped the children celebrate their first Christmas! Volunteering at Baan Unrak was one of the most amazing experiences she has ever had in her life. It's a story worth listening to.
