Help to create a future for the children
Volunt2Thai is a village development project with a focus on children. Because in Thailand, especially in North East Thailand people are very poor. Individual, family members are often forced to leave their children and elderly for longer periods of time, in order to travel to urban centers or abroad to work. The situation is very bad for the development of the children who are left behind without their parents. The children have to take care of their siblings and of the old people as well. The school system is barely developed, the Schools are in need of material and teachers. Therefore Volunt2Thai's most important task is to provide those underprivileged children a chance for education. We do this via volunteers, which we send to the schools we work with.
At V2T Campus & Cultural Centre we welcome people from all walks of life whatever your age or experience. As a volunteer you will live independently in a commune surrounded by Thai villages we work with and take responsibility for your own day to day life within the campus. Your primary task as a V2T volunteer will be to interact with the locals and provide support at the schools teaching basic English language skills through games and classroom work.
We provide bicycles and three wheeled 'taxis' (tuk tuks) which you will drive by yourself and use to reach our various projects, including the 6 schools within our current area of responsibility (an area of approximately 10 square kilometres)

V2T Campus consists of a number of bungalows, a modern Communal Kitchen, a Language Cafe, an elevated Natural Life Resort building, a Seminar Corner and a Library. The complex is integrated within a traditional farm at the edge of a rice field and surrounded by similar farms and small villages.

In return for what must be an unparalleled volunteering experience in Thailand, you will have the chance to give something meaningful back to the community through your work teaching the children and adults English.
