    Description

    My English Class was established in 2016 in Lakxao, Bolikhamxay Province Lao PDR which is near by the Vietnamese border. The reason why I am here is to find a volunteer who is interested in English teaching for the local students in Lakxao, As I mentioned Lakxao is one of rural area in Laos, but many travellers like making a roop travellings. Due to the language barrier, it's hard for them to talk with the local people and find the location to eat and stay. To help them and improve our local area, English teaching by the foreigners for the local people is very important. Therefore we really need as many foreign volunteers as possible to help us.

    We need kind and warm foreigners who can talk with kids student which their age about 10 years up to 18 years old. What you can help us is just practice English with them, prepare your mini lecture or tell them about your experience and talk with them as much as you can. Moreover, You can guide them making class activities like drawing pictures or painting.
    If you guys have some knowledge or interest about social media, documents edition, marketing or promoting my class online, you're more than welcome to apply. For example, you can help me put it in google maps or Maps.
    I'd also like you to help continuing the fundraising work from previous volunteers. Things like gofund.me, contacting international NGOs or foreign governments to apply for education grants etc..
    Furthermore, we still need some help ( mini task) in school construction for kids, you are required to give hands in carry blocks or cement and wash the constructive tools.
    Additionally, Web designer is still needed, because the class teaching and learning materials can be organized and provided for students on internet.
    => Working duration: 1 week or more depends on volunteer's time and our hosting time ( both can negotiate). The reason we host in short time, is due to the local authorities regulations since they do not allow the foreigners staying in household more than a week but this depends on some occasions like some important days in Laos
    => Work time: Monday to Friday 16:00- 20:00
    => Day time: free or travelling around the city or give us a hand in school construction
