Description

VSA1911 Education for Countryside Children is created at Kong Khaek School where it is the school for the countryside children in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Ban Kong Khaek School has been opened for teaching that starts from the kindergarten to junior high student level, located in northern Thailand. There are 238 students including the hill tribe children. The volunteer can share and learn culture, language, and knowledge with the local community and children in school. Everyone can study about each country, nationality, culture, etc. in the real situation. The volunteer can see how the difference between people even they live in the same city. Moreover, the volunteer will know more about Thailand during working in the local community. The great volunteers came to give the opportunity for children and the local people in the community. Many local people can improve their English skills through a group by a group of volunteer, or at least they try to speak the English language more. They dare to face and work with the foreigner even though they cannot speak English. Moreover, the volunteers have changed the local community. They used to stay lively and trustily with the foreigner. Local people have a chance to learn, accept, and adopt the ways of life with the new cultures from the volunteers who are like an intercultural ambassador. We need volunteer to give more opportunity for the children and people in the countryside to link between global and local, improve the local and global situation of natural environment, culture, poverty, and human rights, support local NGOs, and self-sufficiency and human development of the local community, promote friendship, understanding, and solidarity among world youth and local people.

Travail

The volunteer is expected to work as English teachers in the primary school. They can prepare their lesson by themselves, but the teacher at the school can give the advice (do not expect this point too much even the teachers are also shy to speak out).

Logement & Nourriture

The volunteer will stay in the alternative school learning center.  Nature environment, basic and simple.  Mattress, pillow, and fan are provided.  Thai toilet and bath.  Washing clothes by hand.  No food and drinks except drinking water in the sleeping area for your care because some animals such as the mouses, ants, will come to share your food.  Please keep clean and tidy. The volunteer expects to eat Thai food and take turn cooking with a local volunteer.
