Volunteer in Myanmar (Burma) with Openmind Projects
Volunteer in Myanmar and add meaning to your trip!
Young people and migrants from Myanmar are still lacking in quality education and there are thousands of refugees, migrants and displaced people who live along the border between Myanmar (Burma) and Thailand. They face a bleak future without a proper education, as the country has one of the highest poverty rate in Asia. It is estimated that 60% of the population live below poverty line.
A lot of the population near the Thai/Burma border are stateless and without ID papers, so many are not allowed to travel to the Openmind Projects Center in Thailand to attend our Learning Camps. In November 2016, we pioneered mobile Learning Camps at schools in the mountains along the border.
Join our team and volunteer with Openmind Projects to help reach out to the poorest regions - spreading education, motivation and inspiration!
Nature and scenery is stunning with the largest protected forest in South East Asia, with amazing, but unfortunately threatened, wildlife, such as tigers, Asian bisons and elephants. Volunteers also have a unique chance to visit South East Asia’s largest waterfall, deep in the jungle.
These projects suit volunteers up for a challenge! Those who are willing to rough it in a developing country, go off-the-beaten tourist track and go the extra length to help those in need. If you like your own space and more comfort, we can help you find a guesthouse if you are volunteering in town!
Volunteer Myanmar (Burma) Programs
Our volunteer programs in Myanmar will see you teaching in a school along the Thai/Burma border to teach basic English, focusing on easy English words in conversation and also IT training by searching online and using translating tools.
Teach English to eager students, practice simple conversation using role plays and encourage them through fun games. You will also be able to socialize with your students outside of the classroom!
Share your computer and internet skills to help the students to learn more about the world by searching online. Create world and environment awareness by asking students to search, share, discuss with you and each other.
Take part in daily life in Myanmar in this unique experience, it’s a great way to practice English and learn about local life, conditions and challenges that the community faces.
Openmind Projects works directly with schools and communities in the area and unlike bigger international volunteer agencies, our fees are reasonable and low cost, making this an affordable addition to your trip to South East Asia.
