Webster Works Worldwide 2017Webster Works Worldwide 2017Webster Works Worldwide 2017Webster Works Worldwide 2017Webster Works WorldwideIn October each year, Webster students from all corners of the globe participate in a community service event ‘Webster Works Worldwide’ (WWW). Joined by staff and students alike, the day provides a wonderful opportunity for the Webster community, both past and current, to volunteer with a variety of not-for-profit organizations and to assist with their projects. In addition, the day also acts as a unique occasion for the broader Webster community to socialize and get know to know each other away from campus and to connect with local communities.

Webster Thailand students in Bangkok and Hua Hin/Cha Am observed Webster Works Worldwide 2017 on Saturday 28 October. As one of the most anticipated events of the year, 2017 marked the 23rd consecutive year that WWW has been held worldwide. In fact, since it commenced in the mid-1990s, Webster Works Worldwide has seen more than 30,000 students and staff undertake hundreds of thousands of hours of community service across the globe. As well as providing an opportunity for personal development and growth, such dedication has also seen an amazing positive contribution to the communities where Webster University operates.

In Bangkok, the Student Government Association in collaboration with the Student Affairs Department jointly organized a visit to the Baan Tan Tawan Foundation. Well-known for their tireless work supporting underprivileged and orphaned children, the Ban Tan Tawan Foundation is always in in need of additional assistance. To support the foundation’s wonderful work, 39 students, faculty members and staff from Webster’s Bangkok campus dedicated their morning by singing, telling stories and painting with the children.

In Hua Hin/Cha-Am, the Rotaract Club in conjunction with the Student Affairs Department organized a full day visit to the Brain & Mind Disabilities Center in Ratchaburi province. With a total of 37 students and staff in attendance, the team of volunteers spent their day cleaning the center and playing games with the children. Volunteers also took the time to distribute food and toiletries, gathered as a result of fundraising efforts prior to WWW 2017.
