Volunteer in Thailand

Volunteering in Thailand 

Volunteer in Thailand with a charity, NGO. Volunteer with OpenmindProjects!

With a focus on education we started many years ago in Thailand to help underprivileged village children and teenagers. Being a charity, we understood their problems.  And wanted them to learn to use IT and Internet to learn and to learn English.

Volunteer in Northeast Thailand, Isaan, on the Lao border.

Northeast Thailand is one third of Thailand and the people speak Isaan, Lao. This is a poor region where  young villagers leave for jobs in the South or abroad. 

This is where OpenmindProjects started some 20 years ago to help village children to use computers and to learn English. We called it “IT in Isaan”.

Volunteer in Western Thailand in the mountains on the Burma border

The mountains on the border are home to many ethnic groups and refugees. Poverty is very high. Refugees and stateless people have limited access to education. Our volunteers teach Karen, Burmese and Thai children.
