This morning, say goodbye to your homestay hosts and head back to Luang Prabang. Learn about public health in Laos at the Friends Without a Border Hospital Visitor’s Center. Then, relax with a traditional Lao massage. Enjoy a final celebratory meal tonight at the Base, complete with traditional Laotian dancing and music.
At the end of each program, students reflect on their experiences and the issues they engaged with, and talk about how to apply this new understanding to their own worlds. During or after their closing discussion, groups participate in Rustic Ties, a unique and powerful activity that allows students to capture the memories and learning moments of their program to process and share with their communities back home.
