Language and
    culture program

    The main objective of this program is to give an overview of the local culture where volunteers are going to work so that
    they will get culture-shock. At the same time, teach them the local language for basic communication.

    The itinerary given is from the field office in Thailand, which is basically same for other countries as well:
