Teaching English and cultural exchange with rural people in Songkhla province
Songkhla       May 15 - May 27, 2017

Volunteer project: The project takes place in the rural area of Songkhla province, Southern Thailand in the small village called Ban Ton San (Ban in Thai means “village”). The main occupation of the locals is rubber plantation and most of the villagers are Buddhists. The life in the village revolves around Community Living, Learning by Doing and Cultural Diversity.

Volunteer activities:
• Creative English teaching – The aim is to give local people an opportunity to communicate in another language and get in touch with a different culture through informal English lessons.
• Construction – Volunteers are needed to help set up a new community center. We will build a kitchen, a dormitory and a meeting area for volunteers. There are villagers who will teach and help with the construction. This is a good opportunity for participants to learn the Thai way of building.
• Building relationships with the villagers – Besides the main tasks, important part of the project is the cultural exchange, learning and sharing with the local villagers. The volunteers will be visiting them to chat and do activities together. This will be an enriching experience for all.
• Organic farming – Learning how to produce our own non-chemically treated food.
