The Gaisce Society in LYIT are preparing for their 5th returning trip to ‘The Garden of Eden’ rehabilitation centre in Thailand for people suffering from HIV and AIDs. The students work alongside the residents at all stages of the projects to ensure their sustainability. Previous projects undertaken by the students include the building of a frog and fish farm which enable the residents to become self-sufficient. All money raised is taken directly to the centre and is used for the benefit of the residents.
