Project Review

T2T is able to offer our volunteers the opportunity to practice meditation living and teaching in a Thai Buddhist Temple. Volunteers can stay in one of our four temples just outside of Nongkhai, receiving lessons in meditation and Buddhism and/or teaching English at the temple or at a nearby school. The Wats are of rather different character so to place you in the right Wat we need to know what your interests are. The Wat is a forest temple, meaning it has no immediate congregation and is set up to be peaceful and tranquil. Staying here you can teach in a temple school in the morning and meditate etc during the rest of the day.

Major Responsibilities

Volunteers can stay in one of our four temples just outside of Nongkhai,teaching English at the temple or at a nearby school. It is very ambitious when the school is concerned and many of teaching monks speak very good English. In this Wat you can also teach while staying in our volunteer houses. In this Wat you can also learn about meditation because they have some monks that speak very good English.

Arrangements for Room/Food

Volunteers live in small houses in the temple grounds. The houses have a main room with a bed and fridge and a seperate bathroom and shower. Conditions are the same as those for the monks though and so very basic. While in the Wat volunteers share food with the monks and nuns and can join the monks collecting alms in the morning.

Any Missing Important Information

Vaccinations: You should tell your doctor that you are likely to go on a jungle trip in Northeastern Thailand and that you will live in villages in Isan. Keep in mind, Nongkhai is considered to be an urban area and one need not worry about malaria pills for staying exclusively in Nongkhai. Also visit the WHO's (World Health Organisation) Travelers health information.

Insurance: One of the conditions of entry onto our programs is that volunteers have travel insurance. Most importantly the insurance needs to include medical treatment and repatriation in case of unforeseen accidents or illnesses. Volunteers should purchase insurance independently and bring a copy of their insurance certificate with them for their local co-ordinator to check before starting their program. Read our terms and conditions.
