In 1990, Srinakharinwirot University, Southern Campus, the former name of present Thaksin University, offered a bachelor degree program in Economics (B.Ec.), the first economic program ever offered in higher an educational institution in Southern Thailand. Later on November 1, 1996, Southern University was upgraded and renamed as Thaksin University. With the change of the university’s status, former Department of Business Adm inistration and Department of Economics have been merged to become a single entitle called the Department of Economics and Business Administration under the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences. Full approval of the establishment of the department was endorsed by the University Council Meeting on September 20, 2003 making the Department as a unit within the Thaksin University. At present the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration offers four undergraduate programs: Bachelor of Economics (B.Ec.), Bachelor of Business Administration (B.B.A.) in Accountancy, Marketing, Entrepreneurship and Management, and Retail Management. In addition, the faculty offers a graduate program in Master of Business Administration in Business Management. Currently, the Faculty of Economics and Business Administration employs a total 41 personnel, i.e. 31 lecturers and 10 support staff. In general, most Thai students cannot speak English even though they are a university student. It is the big chance to communicate with the foreigner.

You may find it completely different than in your country. There are basic toilets and showers and a kitchen where volunteers will cook by themselves. They can take turn in daily tasks. The ingredients can be purchased at local grocery stores. It may be helpful if you bring some instant ingredients from home, so that you can share some of your traditional food with other volunteers. (No oven, only a gas and woks or pans). As mentioned that it’s a Muslim village, so there will be no pork used in cooking.

Location and leisure

Sukorn Island (KohSukorn) is a small island situated in Palian district, Trang province. The island covers an area of 14 sq km. Like every year, we will be conducting activities with communities of Baan Laem and Baan Toong. In these 2 villages, there is population of 1,200 or 337 families, of which 95% are Muslims. The common occupations of the villagers are fishing, rubber tapping, as well as agriculture; growing paddy, watermelons, traditional way of growing vegetables, and keeping livestock. In general the villagers are very generous and still remain the culture of supporting and sharing with each other. Furthermore, they also believe that paddy and agriculture is the main food stability of the village. Already some years, a group of local researchers had been working with the 2 communities mentioned above. In one community, the village members are still remaining their traditional way of living, while in another, people started to drop their old values and turning to development from the cities. Less and less people are working on paddy fields, or growing their own food supply as it is easier to buy. Therefore, these researchers aim to bring awareness to the locals to keep their old lifestyle and revive the tradition of growing paddy, other traditional agriculture, as well as developing local rice species and doing farmer’s co-operative. However, it is sad that in recent years, the researcher group has not been much active in the effort they created in the early stage. Though we lose their part, we anyhow have successfully continued activities (mainly agriculture and activities with kids) with villagers and develop good relationships through short term work camps and middle term volunteers. DaLaa has been involved with the villagers of these two communities since the first work camp took place in December 2013. For more information, Koh Sukorn is also one of our long-term project sites that it has offered an opportunity to long-staying international volunteers to live with a local host family through their service.
