  • Description

    Description

    Our foundation was established in March 2012 and throughout the years we have progressed from supporting a few children shelters in the North of Thailand to running our own education program at a local school in the village of Huaimasang and also our education center, Baandin. We provide English classes and various kinds of activities to the children in the area, such as: sustainable agriculture, drawing, cooking, sports and music.

    Close by there is a small mountain village school which provides education to about 280 children. Education in this school used to be very poor and after school career the students are not qualified to continue their studies in other areas of the country. We are introducing Montessori education in Kindergarten and English classes to all school levels. This helps children will get a higher qualification and a better chance to continue their studies elsewhere.

    Problems such as family issues, not owning land, drug and alcohol addiction, low or irregular income are very common in the area and many children of these families are at-risk for human trafficking because of a lack of love and a lack of a warm environment.

    Your part as a volunteer is to teach English, play games and bring a bit of light and love in this area with your personality and skills. You will be teaching at school Monday-Friday and we encourage you to help by teaching the staffs and planning additional activities in the afternoon.

    You will get accommodation and food provided, have a true and authentic experience of the Thai culture and make a difference in the children's lives.

    As we are all volunteers who run and fund the project you will have to cover cost aside from accommodation and food but we are happy to support you with information, advice and a little training when you arrive.

    Please send us a message with a short introduction of yourself and how long you can volunteer (requirement is at least 4 weeks) plus your e-mail address so we can send you the application form.

    Thank you for making a difference in these children lives with a bit of your time and enthusiasm.
