This is my second time volunteering at Maam Aung, where we worked together with a group of girl scouts from Belgium.
his is agri natural camp, where we grow our own vegetables, build our own little clay houses and make tools that we use in daily life. All of this is based on living a sufficient and humble life, following the original model of the Rama nine. In the camp we have living areas, a temple, and a school. We helped them build cray houses, which is where the Belgium girls really enjoyed working because a monk who is in charge of this field would turn on music for us to make it more enjoyable to work there. We also built bricks from clay to make clay houses and form the walls with these bricks for the clay houses. Another job we did was farming. We took grass out from a bean plot and cut rice trees. We also taught students French and English. The Belgium girls cooked crab cakes for everyone in the camp and it was delicious. We played buddy and budder game to get to know each other more. Two days before we left this camp, we took classes about how to make soup and shampoo and even learned Thai massage there. On the last day, one of the staff members there, Phra Sangkom, took us to Pattaya beach by car. He always takes good care of us. He also cared if some of us would get confused and misunderstand cultural differences between their home culture and Thai culture. So he would try to explain everything to us in detail. I truly appreciated everything he did for us. Every staff member there is very kind and amazing. Students are also nice and respectful. I also made four new friends from Bhutan. They are really nice people as well. Lastly, this camp has taught me so much and I am so very thankful to everyone that contributed to make this camp happen. I have learned so much and gained valuable skills, lessons, friends, and memories that I will cherish forever.
