Volunteers Discover Unseen Laos
Volunteer and Teach in Laos
Lao, a country once ravaged by war - people still lose their lives due to unexploded bombs – is opening up!
Tourism and natural resources are today major sources of income to Laos as a country. Tourism is booming in country of stunning beauty and fascination cultural diversity! As a volunteer you get a chance to visit famous Luang Prabang, the old capital, a world culture heritage, and travel up the incredibly beautiful valleys, and also a chance to discover the unseen Laos with Openmind Projects.
But not all benefit. Many villagers are being displaced to allow for dam constructions, the ongoing exploitation of nature threatens wildlife and human trafficking is common.
The lack of good education for the rural population prevents poor farmers of various ethnic groups from moving out of poverty.
Volunteering in Laos

Laos communities welcome volunteers to teach English to both children and rice farmers who earn an extra income as guides to eco tourists.
Have a direct impact on these remote communities, help them develop community based eco-tourism.

Volunteer teaching with Openmind Projects
It’s an amazing chance for the curious volunteer to discover Laos culture and nature, while lending a helping hand and teaching eager students, children and adults.
Many young people from these villages in Laos have come to stay for free at our Training Center in Thailand as trainees to improve their English and working skills for a better job or further studies so that they can return to their villages to help their community.
Meet some of them at our Volunteer Training in Thailand!
