Our Foundation aims at helping rural children receive a qualitative outstanding education. We have a volunteer teaching program to assist rural teachers and children get exposure to foreign languages and cultures. Because English is the second language in Thai schools, we will concentrate on improving the English language skills of both rural teachers and children. At present, we aim to help six public elementary schools (grades 1 - 6) close to Chiang Mai.

The first semester starts in mid-May until the end of September.

The second semester starts at around the 1st of November and lasts until the end of February.

We are currently taking applications for volunteers who would available to start in mid-May 2019. We are looking for volunteers to teach English only and are available to stay at least eight weeks. We would love to have candidates who will stay for a whole semester or even a year, if possible. Couples are welcome as well.

NOTE: We do not charge volunteers any fees for staying with us. The generous gift of your time and dedication is all the donation we will ask of you.

We provide the volunteers lodging and meals in return for their generous services. Please note that housing is on campus, smoking, and consumption of alcoholic will not be allowed.

The volunteer teachers will teach the children English conversation and vocabulary in addition to their regular required English lessons.

Teaching experience is not required. However, we expect candidates will have the ability to acclimate themselves to the local customs and mentality. e.g. dress conservatively, avoid public displays of affection etc.

The photos below show one of the schools we are helping and also some photos of the rooms where our volunteer teachers will stay at.

We are dedicated not only to help the children but also to make the working and living conditions of our volunteer teachers really pleasant.
