Project Review

For many centuries, wats or Buddhist temples have served as educational institutions for young citizens of Thailand. Though the influence of the western educational system has led to many changes, wat schools still function within the social context of the temples. Wats or temples are the public gathering places where religious and social activities take place. There are about 30,000 temples in Thailand where monks live and do religious study. All the temples receive donation which is used for the maintenance of temples and its surroundings. In addition to this, some temples support social welfare activities for the benefit of the local communities. One of these includes running a school within the temple complex.

Major Responsibilities

The volunteers working in temple schools get an opportunity to gain the experience in teaching and also understand Thai culture/Buddhist religion deeply rooted in Thai society. The volunteers in this project will teach English to primary and lower secondary school students from Mondays to Fridays.
