“Welfare and Accessibility” lecture @ International College, Faculty of Social Administration, Tham-ma-sat University, Tha-pra-chan Campus.

We were invited to educate the students about welfare and accessibility. Before this lecture, I have not had much information about the welfare system.

It’s such a wonderful day and great to get to know new fabulous people. Hopefully my provision of resources could be applied further. Thanks to Thun and her lovely father, Korea …

Yesterday, we had a chance to show those international reporters both the MRT and BTS stations. I started our conversations with “I am concerned about Thailand’s big picture” and gave a scenario “Mr. Sam who is in a wheelchair and came to Thailand and faced several inconveniences due to the lack of facilities for disabled people. What impressions would he convey back home, about Thailand?” We started our journey from Su-wan-na-phum Thailand International Airport by taking the ARL, then the MRT and finished the journey at A-sok Train Station which is in Bangkok’s Central Business District.
