Afect provides free education to vulnerable hill tribe children, community support, vocational training and sports and arts.We assist the young and vulnerable and their families to break out of the trap of poverty through education, health care, nutrition and income generation and we have put thousands of children through primary education.The children are very enthusiastic about learning and very much appreciate hearing good English being taught and spoken by the volunteers. You don't have to be a teacher to volunteer on our English Teaching projects. Often you will find that all you have is a blackboard and a piece of chalk in the classroom. Fortunately the main resource you have is yourself. The students will want to find out about you. They will want to know why you have chosen to come and teach in a school in Thailand. Lots of the lessons will give you the opportunity to explain about where you live or your interests and hobbies at home.
AFECT solely exists to help those in need. As a registered charity, we are legally bound that 100% of all monies received are used to promote our charitable objectives. We keep our administration costs to a minimum and provide full in country support for your stay.We feel volunteering fulfills a need and helping those who are enslaved by unjust poverty can counter balance our privileged lives in the west, but here at AFECT your visit can reach deeper than that – ultimately your trip is a return to nature (the tribe is very close to the biodiversity of the rain forests) and nature in all its forms reconnects us back to our inner being. Your time at AFECT will be colorful, cultural and a very rewarding one.
