Thai Volunteer Service (TVS) began in 1980
We used a small classroom of Social Research Institute in Chulalongkorn University as our office for the Thai Volunteer Service Project. The place gradually became too small to accommodate young leaders from various universities throughout Thailand. As during 1980s, it was the changing period not only for Thailand, but also for also different countries around the globe. University students were eager to come and participate in discussion about democracy and social change.
Thai Volunteer Service (TVS) has been recruiting human right volunteers
who graduated from law and other social sciences since last eight years. The volunteers are placed in NGO’s to gain experience in human right field and issues for one year.
Human Right Volunteer program
Thai Volunteer Service (TVS) has been recruiting human right volunteers who graduated from law and other social sciences since last eight years. The volunteers are placed in NGO’s to gain experience in human right field and issues for one year. TVS aims to produce young human right volunteers and human right lawyers, motivated to be a change agent in the society with this volunteerism program.
We present some of the experiences shared by the young human right volunteers who are of batch 9 and are placed in the respective NGO’s.
We see ourselves as a rainbow bridging young people in the cities and rural areas, so that they can share with, learn from and respect each other and be able to link themselves more closely with their own communities and the global world.
