5 week Thailand Community Volunteering Project - improving English, music, drama, sports & more

Pays d’action: Thaïlande, Asie
Type d’activité: Missions humanitaires, en faveur d‘enfants et de jeunes, en faveur de femmes, Enseignement
Travel and volunteer as part of a small group of 17 to 25 year olds, in the Thaton region of rural Northern Thailand. It is a wonderful opportunity to experience rural Thai life and ideal for those ready for a challenge and short on time. There is a chance for cultural exchange whilst helping to improve English in a local school, and living amongst the Thai people.

Description du projet et du rôle des volontaires

Flying into Chiang Rai, you will then travel for a couple of hours to the Maekok River Village Resort in Tha Ton, for a short introduction to Thailand, its culture, history and language as well as covering your role whilst on project.

After your briefing you will travel to your new home; a rural school not far from Tha Ton – your base for the next five weeks. This time will be spent living and working in the local community, helping to improve English at the nearby school and getting involved with other activities in the community.

The Thai schools’ English syllabus is entirely an exercise in writing, so neither teachers nor children get a chance to speak it. That’s where you come in! You can take classes or small groups in your school to help the Thai English teacher with pronunciation and give the children a massive boost in confidence. You may be asked by teachers and villagers to run separate classes for them. You can also play sports with the children (each school has a pitch at its centre) or perhaps paint some educational murals, with your pupils, to brighten up school buildings. Why not run some after-school clubs for music, art or drama!

Each day you can spend time socialising with the villagers; teachers will explain the Thai way of life and traditions and, perhaps, teach you some Thai dancing or Takraw (a sort of cross between volleyball and football). This is a great chance to make new friends - they will be keen to talk about where you are from, your family and life at home, whilst you can practice your Thai!

In your free time you can do as you wish and explore the area. Our representative will arrange for you to enjoy some weekend activities like trekking in Fang National Park, cycling, archery, rock climbing, Chiang Mai, kayaking on the Maekok River and an elephant ride!

After your final night in Chiang Rai we will take you to the airport in time to catch your flight home.
