Volunteer & Teach at the Beach!
Koh Samui may be a haven for international sun-worshippers with its stunning beaches, the waterfalls and the nightlife, but it too suffers from a lack of funding for basics such as education, childcare and school development. Many of the schools here have set up on land owned by temples with financial support being raised by the monks. As the monks have their own lifestyles to support, funding for the schools is often meager, if anything. That’s where you come in! Any Thai with an ability to speak even the most basic English stands a better chance of breaking free from their meager surroundings.
Working within a community school you will assist teachers with teaching basic English to 6 to 12 years olds. This will involve interaction with kids during lessons, in break lunch periods and in extracurricular activities sech as sport & football. The project looks after 3 different schools on the island, so plenty of kids to look after!
