Volunteer Opportunity posted by: CADIP
Posted on: August 28, 2013
The Singburi projects are part of a larger campaign and efforts to stimulate rural development with the support of International Voluntary Service. We believe that the impact of the international volunteers in rural communities is an important stimulus to open minds and reduce prejudices. We work a lot with rural areas to transmit these values to the villagers.
The main objective of the project is cultural exchange between the international volunteers and the local villagers, but the participants will also get involved in practical work in the communities, doing different kinds of support and development works, like construction or renovation of village houses or schools, etc.
The aim of this project is to not only contribute to the rural development of the village, rather, it is hoped that through this work, both the participants and the villagers come closer, have fun together, learn more about each other's cultures and set a good basis for future activities and give both the participants and the local people an opportunity to exchange their cultures.
The volunteers will learn about the culture of rural Thailand in general and the traditions and specificity of the Central region. Thai language lessons will also be given to the volunteers.
The project will be held from September 29 to October 13, 2013 and from January 26 to February 9, 2014 in the Singburi region (Central Thailand). Sing Buri is 142 km north of Bangkok on the west bank of the Chao Phraya River.
