The Exchange

Program Details

We welcome people from all backgrounds who would like to contribute to our community.
1. We work with local people that have very limited access to English education. Our main goal is to make sure they are able to communicate with foreigners and make our community famous in the world. You expected to help with English classes, but teaching experience is not required.
2. Right now, our primary objective is developing programs to attract more customers to the business of our crafts village. If you have a background in social media, web development, social innovation and entrepreneurship and other business know-how, content marketing, etc., this would be helpful supplementary work.

Activities & Shift

3.We have daily activities that include short general cleaning: cleaning the restroom, tidying up the area and the garden. We also take short trips to local schools or temples to hand out flyers describing our programs.
Most of all, we need people who are responsible and fun! We often help out at local schools/temples and charities, so it'll be great if you've had experience or love to interact with locals and kids.


* Prepare for the English classes: if you have no experience with teaching English, please google or youtube some games to play with children or teach them grammar, vocabulary, etc.
* If there are public holidays at schools, our volunteers are required to help with cleaning the area, homestay rooms, garden. If you are fond of gardening, you are welcome to tell us and we will take care together of new plants and gardening.
* Be creative and open-mided for some new recreactional activities!

It's a part of your adventure!
