I love nighttime strolls in Bangkok – alone in the city, empty streets, and the noise of traffic fading into the distance.

It is a chance to clear my head, breathe calmly, and let my worries slip away. “Oh, but I should mention – I am a man and not of the fairer sex.” For roughly half of the 12 million people living in the Thai capital, those dark streets are an utterly different place. The threats of physical and sexual violence are constant and brutal. This is especially true for the newly arrived rural nursing students I teach at Wat Arun Community Centre in Bangkok. Through our conversations, I slowly discovered they lacked the security I took for granted. Even worse, for most of my two years there, I had no idea it existed. It is the definition of privilege.

Why “Assimilation Package”

After hearing a few whispered stories, I knew the only way to discover the problem’s full extent would be an anonymous survey. I also knew, based on Thai culture, that a traditional questionnaire would never generate genuine insights. Therefore, I created a survey containing mostly “rank by most to least” and “what would you do in this situation” multiple-choice questions. I tried to map out the specific situations that generated the most negative interactions. I even compared this to open-ended questions via A/B testing, proving the structured survey delivered the most insights. With this information, I could finally complement my English and technology classes with something to make the city significantly safer for these young women: Assimilation Packages.
