Volunteer to Thailand, Volunt2Thai
- Udon Thani
Volunt2Thai Community and Social Development Project
started in 2014 in the northeastern region of Thailand (Isan) with the aims of helping farmers and their families and to encourage the development of the region with particular emphasis on guiding the children of the villages to a better future. V2T has since grown and with the constant expansion of its network, it has become a Campus & Cultural Center and platform for all kinds of projects.
One cannot not communicate
Every behavior is a form of communication. Because behavior does not have a counterpart (there is no anti-behavior), it is impossible not to communicate (Paul Watzlawick). The purpose of your stay is to influence the reality of the children with the influence of your presence in such a way that when they grown up will be able to act in a wide intercultural dimension with world understanding and determine their destiny. In simplest terms "you are supposed to give them knowledge and good memories".
Beeing Ambassadors to develop Yunus Social Business Centres (YSBC) globally
V2T has taken the responsibility to implement Dr Yunus 3 Zeros i.e. zero unemployment, zero net carbon, zero poverty in schools according to school curriculum priorities and United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) through a process of STEMSEL Invention for Social Good. This all is done with support from Dr Yunus Community Ambassadors (DYCA)
Collaborative partnerships with NGO’s and educational institutions
Volunt2Thai works with a wide range of partners in all of its fields of competence for the development of different projects taking place at our project sites. In contrast to the project Volunt2Thai which concentrates its efforts on the development of the comm unity with particular focus on the children, the association's aim is to promote and support the volunteer engagement of youths and adults and in so doing, contribute to the development of international cooperation and understanding.
V2T, Volunt2Thai - Volunteer to Thailand is an Austrian association
and has its headquarters in Vienna (Volunt2Thai Austria – Association for the promotion of volunteer work). Among our partners is the state aided organization "Weltwegweiser" (“Jugend eine Welt"), supported by the Austrian Development Agency (Agentur der Österreichischen Entwicklungszusammenarbeit). Through our cooperation with "Worldwide Volunteers”, German volunteers can receive sponsorship from the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), allowing them to work with us for a so called "social year" (Entwicklungspolitischer Freiwilligendienst weltwärts). Additionally students can apply for a scholarship in combination with internship at Volunt2Thai.
