Our Dean expressed, "In Thailand, still, manufacturing social welfare upon elderly and social works are not well conducted to the society and we are aggressive to learn from Japan. Such this exchange leads our future and more improvements needs to be done." This exchange began in 2007, and 40 students had participated in the program. This year, May 5th to 28th, 5 students from Thammasat University began their training at child and elderly welfare facilities.
