Thank you Volunteers for Engaging, Integrating and Giving Back

Over the last month we have had 8 volunteers at four of our volunteer projects. The volunteers showed a willingness to adapt to the projects’ needs and integrated into the schools and the local Kuraburi community. English can be difficult subject for Thai students to tackle, often times leaving them extremely shy and scared to try and speak. Volunteers quickly break down these barriers by doing interactive and activity based English lessons.  Why is this important? Students are tested on […]

Creative Volunteering

Students playing games at the beach with volunteers

Over this last season Andaman Discoveries has had amazing volunteers! There were a total of 57 volunteers throughout the six volunteer programs that we support. The majority of the volunteer projects focus on teaching English in a fun and interactive way. There is a direct need for volunteers at local schools and learning centers because the schools do not have a budget to hire a Western English teacher to build the capacity of the students and also Thai English teacher. Thai students […]

Thank you to the Schmidtke family!

A big THANK YOU to the Schmidtke family, who both volunteered and experienced one of our home stay programs.  They volunteered for the Burmese Learning Center and made a fundraising campaign to help its existence, which raised 11,000 Baht. We loved our time with this positive, heartwarming family. Here are some of the things they said about both programs: “This is a wonderful program that allows you to have a meaningful interaction with Thai/Burmese children/teachers.” “I love small villages and our […]

Volunteers Experience!

We would never have guessed that we could get so much appreciation and learn so much in only 5 weeks! We were privilaged to volunteer at the Bankura School in Kuraburi, where we taught English to the children. We noticed that the lessons are given by a government issued live broadcast instead of a teacher who explains everything. On one side that is good, because the children can always follow class (sometimes the teachers are gone). On the other side […]
