Let us tell you.

About Openminds. Newstart after the COVID

We like so many others had to put our activities on hold, awaiting the Covid effects and still waiting. We do not know when our trainees can return from their villages, or when we can start to arrange our successful autumn/fall Learning Camps for village and migrant children. We will however help the Thai Non-formal Education with some short camps this July.  We do not think it will be possible for many, if any, overseas volunteers to travel to Southeast Asia this year. We will however initiate online learning and volunteering soonest, hopefully with the help of a major IT company this autumn!

  • With the funds raised, we now prepare for a restart after Covid! We will work on a lean budget and must rely on future fundraising and local support since it will be difficult and expensive for volunteers to travel for a long while we believe.
  • We will partner with a local school, relocate our Training Center there, That will be a win, win! More space for training, a special Virtual Training Room, an English Library, organic gardening and sports and dorms. Our trainees and future volunteers will be able to teach and socialize with the schoolchildren during and after school. Openmind Projects presence will help the school to continue get government support and allow them to receive orphan and migrant schoolchildren from Laos, Cambodia and Myanmar. 
  • We are looking for support from overseas Ed and Tech companies, from local education institutions. We will invite virtual volunteers to help trainees, campers and local students. We will train our trainees to teach English and IT to local students, to become camp leaders, teacher assistants and to act as digital ambassadors to local small business, street vendors and villagers. 
  • We will be seeking partners overseas, to share and scale up our learning and camp concepts and offer to train other NGOs, schools, teachers.
  • To sustain and scale up our work long term we will look for volunteer fundraisers and for support from IT, EdTech and corporations, educational and other institutions.

Welcome to join us!
