Description: Koh Yao is a Muslim island in the Andaman sea of South Thailand. Since it started to become a tourist attraction, there have been some big changes in the local communities’ lifestyle. The villagers started to move from fishing and agriculture to tourism industry-related work. People realized slowly the dangers of losing their friendly sufficient communities and environmental issues are rising quickly. During these 2 weeks, volunteers will join the network of schools to help to organize activities with kids and take part in the realities of the local population. This way we hope to get more mutual understanding between the local population and the international communities and make a small step in a better direction for all of us.
Type of Work: 1. Organizing creative English teaching activities with kids with two different schools of Koh Yao Education Development Network on Koh Yao Yai.
- Learning the village lifestyle and increasing participation of the villagers.
- Voluntary service activities with the community.
Accommodation: Volunteers will sleep in the school meeting room or at villagers’ houses (depending on the number of volunteers). You will need to bring your own sleeping bag, foldable mat, and mosquito net with you. There are basic toilets, showers, and a kitchen at the school canteen.
Requirements: - Volunteers should be ready to stay in a local area, to adapt to the local conditions with only basic facilities. Very few local people are able to speak in English.
- Volunteers should be able to be with the kids and prepare some games and materials for teaching.
Approximate Location: 15/12 Moo 2, Prunai Subdistrict, Koh Yao District, Phangnga Province, 83000, Thailand
