Description

This program is set up with Thailand's leading volunteer organization. Over the years, it has successfully placed volunteers from around the world with primary and secondary schools in the Singburi region that are also open for impoverished families. Besides teaching English on a non-formal basis, the volunteers are able to work with children in their vegetable garden (for their own consumption) as well as create activities for the students or arrange workshops on a range of important issues, such as cultural exchange and environment. Renovation and construction tasks are also carried out to improve living conditions. In cooperation with our full-time coordinator, a unique work program is created each month for everyone involved in this initiative.

Eligibility for this program includes:
- Minimum age of 18 (it is possible to arrange a family package)
- Good level of English
- Motivation to work with children and meet new cultures
- Able to work in hot and humid climate
- Full travel and medical insurance
- Immunizations (please consult your doctor)

Highlights

Volunteers will be assigned various tasks and responsibilities at a local orphanages:

Informal teaching and assisting with school work

The coordinator oversees the logistics and daily activities. Every day volunteers usually leave the center after breakfast around 9:00 in the morning for the orphanage and leave late midday back to our base camp again. The orphanages are located 40km from the volunteer campus and local transportation is provided. The local teachers are typically Thai and there is one teacher who's English is fairly well. Weekends are usually off for traveling or just relaxing at the campus.
