Larissa, a volunteer from Switzerland, was volunteering 6 months in the Phuket Sunshine Village.

She was the first volunteer working for the PSV. Larissa lived in the Village with the kids, sharing a room with one of our mothers and dedicating her time every day fully to the children.

Larissa was a great help for our village director Mrs. Nuttisa and a real friend and teacher for our children.

Both, the staff and Larissa, learned a lot from each other during the last 6 months, a real transcultural experience with a great benefit for our children.

Please see some pictures below from the farewell party, the pictures say it all….

Good bye Larissa, we, and in particular the children, will miss you. Thank you very much for your big effort during the last 6 months, good luck for the future and we all hope to see you soon again.

For everyone who is interested in volunteering for the PSV, please read first our information for volunteers, if you think you can meet the prerequisites, drop us a mail and we will bring you in contact with Larissa, to get firsthand information of her impressions and experiences in the village.
