Sapana V2T Heroes Teaching Skills Handbook for Volunteers released!!
- Created on .
Volunt2Thai and Mark Kantorovich offers the young students of Stamford International University in Hua Hin to join a "practice lab" where they can use their newly acquired marketing skills. Especially in the social media and online environment!
We do good and also tell about it. V2T creates wonderful projects and a promising future for the children, this should and must be communicated and transported through the media. Whether social enterprise or profit-oriented company. Without marketing, a company is like someone who sits in a dark room and expects people to find him without light.
Marketing is what creates customers and generates revenue, determines the future course of a company and defines whether it will be a success or a failure. Marketing is indispensable. Marketing is an activity that requires a lot of professional experience. Therefore we are happy that we can offer the students of Stamfort International University with Volunt2Thai the opportunity to apply marketing in a real environment.
The students can gain very important experiences and do good at the same time!
Marketing is the most important part of every business activity. V2T should develop over the next years as a Social Business. Volunt2Thai, like most small charities, has many pictures and stories to share but no marketing budget. But V2T can offer the students an important test field. The promotion of an NGO is a challenge. Such an environment offers prospective marketing students the necessary practice and applied research.
These very valuable experiences can later be directly applied in the professional life. A win-win situation for the students, for V2T and for the children supported by Volunt2Thai.
We'd like to thank Mr. Frank Paesler (Germany) from Astronomie für Alle (Astronomy for everyone).
"no light pollution on campus"
Astronomy are very closely related to physics and mathematics, opening up new insights. Astronomy is part of the natural sciences and concerns us all. The realization that the universe is our home and our planet Earth on which we live is our little island of life, which existed even before we as individual persons were born, is an important part of our mind development even if we need a lifetime to recognize these facts and to count them together.
It is an important part of our personality development to better understand who we are and where we come from. Astronomy teaches us the meaning of time (our lifetime a window of generations) and space (our habitat) but also the understanding of big and small. That is why it teaches us also what is important and unimportant.
The children and people of our region have never seen an astronomical telescope before, so we are very happy about the donation from Mr. Paesler.
Years ago I had been active in astronomy myself and now I would like to take some time to refresh this knowledge and share it with the children. Astronomy is a complex subject it will take me some time to reorient myself. I will also have to learn to use this "new" astronomy instrument. Because there are different ways of telescope design. In the past I learned with a schmidt cassegrain telescope. However, this telescope is a Newton telescope, also called a Newton reflector. It is a kind of reflecting telescope invented by the English scientist Sir Isaac Newton (1642-1727). So I think it will take a few more weeks until we can use the telescope for the first time with the kids. But if there are any hobby astronomers in our area who know how to handle this instrument well, I invite everyone to join and organize stargazing evenings with the children in advance (this also applies to future volunteers)
Best regards to Germany, thank you Mr. Frank Paesler for this wonderful present which is priceless to us.

- Dr. Weerasak Tanong (Director of the Ban Nong Kung School) and
- Dr. Panayuth Choeybal (Dr.Panayuth Choeybal Assistant Professor Udonthani Rajabhat University)
invited the professors and students of Rajabhat University Nakhon Pathom to come and visit our project. The Ban Nong Kung School Model was presented, a project in cooperation with Volunt2Thai Austria.
After a cultural presentation at the Ban Nong Kung School the V2T Campus was visited. The volunteers practised with the children during the last weeks in the frame of the V2T summer camp and gave a wonderful performance.
The audience was visibly impressed and very happy. There were presents for the children and also a special support from Rajabhat University Nakhon Pathom for the children. The children have been encouraged to continue on the path of learning and knowledge. At the finale there was a luncheon for everyone.
Finally everyone said goodbye with positive feelings. Thank you very much for the guests presents, we feel very honored! A great day for the village, the community, the school and the project!
Thanks to all who have helped, together we create a future for the children, for the next generation.
V2T belohnt deine Freiwilligenarbeit als Deutsch & Englisch "Lehrer" mit einem "Free stay in Hanoi".
Bleibe einen Monat bei Volunt2Thai und bekomme als Dankeschön, einen Monat extra - kostenlosen Aufenthalt bei unserem Partnerprojekt in Hanoi / Vietnam,....
Freiwilligendienst ist eine gute Tat, und gute Taten sollten belohnt werden. Aber auch der Freiwilligendienst und der Rundum-Service sind mit hohen Kosten verbunden. Volunt2Thai muss leider ohne staatliche Mittel auskommen und die Freiwilligen müssen ihre Lebenshaltungskosten selbst tragen (auch wenn diese bei bester Pflege so niedrig wie möglich gehalten werden).
Es uns nicht möglich, diese Kosten weiter zu senken, aber mit Hilfe unserer Partnerorganisation in Vietnam können wir dir als besondere Belohnung einen Monat lang einen kostenlosen Monat als Volontär in Hanoi anbieten. Alles, was du tun musst, ist, die Kinder unserer Gegend länger als einen Monat zu unterstützen, (Deutsch oder Englisch) dann können wir dir im Gegenzug einen kostenlosen Aufenthalt als Freiwilliger für einen weiteren Monat in Vietnam anbieten!
