Go ED Mekong

 

The highlands of northern Thailand is home to GoED Mekong, an intensive immersion program that allows students to explore “the root causes of exclusion and exploitation of marginalized people groups . . ” and to gain an “understanding of the relationship between exploitation and its root causes: poverty, discrimination, exclusion and violence.” The program fosters spiritual formation alongside academic courses.  In additional to classroom instruction, students participate in service projects with local NGOs.
