Part of TBB’s curriculum is to have students present a culminating project about a topic researched over the span of Thailand, Cambodia, and India. My friend Eva and I decided to focus on Sexuality, Relationships, and HIV/AIDs. It has been interesting to interview villagers in Don Jiang, Thailand about their exposure to sex ed in school and their openness to homosexuality. In Cambodia, we learned that Buddhists believe that homosexuality comes from too much greed. Interesting….
In India we have focused on gender-based violence as well as arranged marriage issues.
