Ubon Ratchatani is one of the biggest provinces of the North East region of Thailand. The North East is known between Thais as Isan. The region faces major environmental, economic and social problems, which cause massive emigration of young adults toward Bangkok and other big cities. Often the young adults leaving for big cities leave their children with the grand parents, and while the grand parents take care of the animals and the fields, the children hang around in the villages and try to have fun. Not always the local institutions have a strategy to involve children in outdoor or leisure activities. The Khueang Nai District administration wants to dynamize the Deng Mor rural area and stimulate English learning with the help of the international volunteers.
In this project, volunteers will take part in some manual work for the local community and will teach English to children at primary or secondary schools. This work will bring both the participants and the villagers closer and will provide opportunities for cultural exchange.
The volunteers will discover the typical Isan culture and traditions, visiting villagers, farmers and local artisans, and helping them in their daily tasks. The volunteers will also hold English language classes and workshops for the children of the local primary and secondary school. Thai language lessons will be given to the volunteers.
