Gordonstoun International Service Projects

The Sinai project


Thailand Water Project

The Thailand Water Project takes place in late June in Northern Thailand in the Inthanon mountains. The aim of the project is to provide clean running water to the Karen villagers. The students will be required to find a clean water source high in the hills and then make a dam and dig and lay pipes down to the village. Then they will construct two large water tanks in the village to hold the water.  If they have time they will also lay pipes from the tanks to each hut.

The students live with the villagers in their wooden huts and spend any spare time playing with the children and also teaching them English and games in the local school. The project lasts approximately three weeks and the aim is to leave the village with healthy clean water so that the village can prosper in the future.

Sinai Irrigation and Conservation Project

The Sinai Project takes place usually at Easter in the Eastern Sandstone Desert of  the Sinai Peninsular.  The aim of the project is to help create small scale projects to assist the Musseina Bedu in sustaining a lifestyle that has unchanged for centuries.  These can range from small scale surface water schemes and dams in narrow canyons to creating shelters in wadis where there is little shade for travellers to re-instating wells.  There is usually an opportunity for the students to attend a local school, climb Mt Sinai, visit St Catherine’s Monastery  as well as interact with the Bedu who are gentle  people keen to share their understanding and knowledge of this fascinating environment.
