I am Caroline Jackson and have known Nicola since she was at school. My life has been spent as a teacher in mainstream but always with an interest in young people with special needs. My daughter went and spent a little time with Nic when she first volunteered in Bangkok and she and I spent 10 days in Bangkok with Nic in 2012. We were able to meet and work with the children and staff and see the facilities. I hosted two of the heads of orphanage who came over in 2011 and I am fascinated by the way the contact between 1Step2step and the Thai authorities has brought about so much change in such a short time.
