In Thailand, poor with local income cannot pay for often-expensive childcare services. Local government and Buddhist temples have established childcare centers to support children between the ages of 2-6; especially those from poor families. Volunteers/travelers can benefit by supplying these orphans with much-needed love and companionship as well as a solid foundation to meet their needs and nurture their interests, goals and ultimately make their dreams for a brighter future come to fruition.
As a volunteer in Thailand helping disadvantaged children, volunteers will teach children to speak and write, walk and run, sing songs, play sports and fun games, shape clays, dance, etc. Volunteers can create their own lesson plans to conduct within class which best suits the needs and interests of the young children. Volunteers working with young children will be provided teaching and playing materials for use in the centers. The working hours are between 8:00am-12:00pm. Volunteers will also work in nearby primary schools during the day, teaching English for 3-4 hours a day.
Program Fee Does Not Cover
