Samen met 9 andere vrijwilligers ga je voor 13 dagen naar een taalcursus en kinderenproject.
Het project duurt van 12 t/m 25 november.
Let op: naast het inschrijfgeld betaal je ter plekke nog een lokale bijdrage van ฿ 8500. (Ca. € 225)
• Give non-formal English classes by organizing creative activities • Create teaching materials for teachers and kids • Adapt the classrooms by decorating/painting • Improve the school area (creating new gardens, for example) • Activities with villagers: clean up the island, host family, or fishing trip with fishermen
Volunteers will stay in a school classroom. You will need to bring sleeping bag, a small mattress and a mosquito net for yourself. The living condition is very simple than you would think. You may find it completely different than in your country. There are basic toilets and showers and a kitchen where volunteers will cook by themselves They can take turn in daily tasks. The ingredients can be purchased at local grocery stores (but the price is like 5 times the normal price) or from the market on land (We’d rather take this option). However, there will NOT be a variety of selection as the project site is far situated away from mainland. What the locals normally do is buy a whole lot of food supply once or twice a week from the mainland. Volunteers will need to be flexible with easy meals, having almost the same dishes and fruits for the 2 weeks. It may be helpful if you bring some instant ingredients from home, so that you can share some of your traditional food with other volunteers. (No oven, only a gas and woks or pans).
• Laundry: expect to hand-wash your clothes • Water supply and electricity: Available but limited **Solar power cells are used to generate electricity there. Volunteers are requested not to charge electrical devices during the night time. Underground water will be used as spare and in case of emergency • Internet/phone access: Yes • There is small shops in the village for necessary things but no market. • Hospital:District hospitals on land at Langu town. • Hat Yai, the main city of South Thailand (close to DaLaa office) is 2 hours by mini bus from Pakbara. • Clothes worn in the village: You will be living in an area with elderly people and children around so it is appropriate that you dress modestly, for example no short skirts or shorts too far above the knees. Also women should wear tops that cover your shoulders. You will learn more about Thai culture at the introduction day so please don’t worry too much. You will quickly learn when it best to dress more informally and when it is important to cover up.
Volunteers will organize activities with kids at the small school of KohBulon Island, in the Andaman sea, South Thailand. There will have a few activities with the fishermen local community. We keep organizing this workcamp every year since the school request in 2013 . It’s beneficial for everyone to make social volunteer work, for the local population to see foreigners in a different way than tourism, for the volunteers to understand the reality of the local life, to exchange… and work on common aims.
The volunteers should be ready to stay in a remote area, to adapt to the local conditions with only basic facilities. Not manylocal people are able to speak in English. Volunteers should be able to handle spontaneous working environment and constant changes in the plans. The mentality and way of thinking is very different from the western world.There will have activities with the children. To have responsibility for you, the kids and full involvement in community matters is a must. For the 2 weeks, you will be leaded by a DaLaa member/staff who will help to coordinate the project.
