Our Learning Centre on Koh Payam is a family run eco-friendly Home School. Located at Heaven Beach, Buffalo Bay, we offer a unique opportunity for volunteers to support young learners aged 4 to 7 years to grow and develop in a more natural way. Built solely of materials sourced on the property, our Mud Brick School Buildings and Volunteer Accommodation is located only 50 metres from a pristine beach safe for swimming all year round.
Travellers will become part of a special community that encourages everyone to support the growth & development of our young learners. There will also be opportunities to interact with the Local Moken Sea Gypsy Community here during their stay. We work closely together to bridge the gap between the cultures of the island. Our students are from Thailand, Myanmar & also from the Moken Sea Gypsy Community.
