This Photography was taken in Lawa Village, in Northern Thailand, during an English Camp organised by ATMA SEVA organisation run by David Poppe, 21-21 December 2012. That was a great experience to join those fantastic Volunteers and have opportunity to document activities provided by them. Kids of the village were very shy and modest, but at the same time very involved in camp activities of learning basics of English … And it is very visible on this picture of the girl hiding behind her notebook.
