IT and Online Learning in Thailand and Laos
Bridging Gaps, reduce poverty as our IT volunteer
Poor village children go to poor village schools. IT helps make up for poor schools and our volunteer teachers make a difference! They help girls and boys to use computers and internet our 'Learning by Doing Way'.
When a trainee arrives at our center, a camper to a camp, they never learned to search for information online, to search in English and use the computer to show what they learned in an English PowerPoint presentation. Much less make a video and publish it online. Openmind Projects pioneered IT learning in the early 2000s.
IT savvy volunteers can teach and also help us with websites, social media, databases, videos and more.

Jai, Openmind Projects Trainee from Nalong Village in Laos
'I had never met a foreigner before I came to Openmind Projects. I could not speak any English. I had never seen a computer. Today I can use Word, PowerPoint, make presentations and videos. And I help new trainees and train campers and help new volunteers.'
Teach IT and Online Learning with Openmind Projects in Asia
Inspire and help girls and boys to use smartphones as learning tools. Today even poor kids have cheap smartphones.
Online searching and learning is a great, maybe the only, way to learn for isolated kids. Encourage them to use their phones to learn, not only chat! Give them interesting topics to learn about, to share and discuss.
IT volunteers also teach basic IT skills to new beginners, children at schools and our Training Center in Thailand. And kids use the Internet a lot at our camps!
