from the poor family, and the children from the very remote area.
There are about 700 students that they can come and stay at the
school from the primary (7 years old) to high school (18 years old).
English as the global language and intercultural learning are
important for local Thai people to understand and being for global
citizens. English is also the gateway to open mind and knowledge.
After the project was created by VSA Thailand and has been
successful for eight years. Former volunteers came to give the
opportunity for children in schools and local community. Many local
people improved their English skills through exchanging with international volunteers, or at least they try to speak the English
language more and dare to face and work with the foreigner even though they cannot speak English. Moreover, volunteers’
activities impacted local community. They used to stay lively and trustily with the foreigner. Local people have a chance to
learn, accept, and adopt the ways of life with the different cultures
