Voluntary or Paid work?

Posted by johub on 29/5/2009 at 18:30

Just wondered if anyone can give me some advice on undertaking some voluntary/paid work.
I am hoping to get to Asia (prob) Thailand in August and maybe go home in March but I am very flexible!
My Friend taught English to monks in Cambodia. Anyone heard of this?

I've also heard of people teaching English to Monks. I assume the Monks were ready and willing to be taught.

On another 'front', check out:

In that vein, many rural groups (esp. hilltribes) get little education and would appreciate voluntary offers. But, it would have to be reasonably well planed and structured. Those working with refugees (eg. at Mae Sot) could also help you.

You won't have too much trouble finding volunteer work -- be it teaching to monks, helping out in orphanages etc. For paid work, teaching english is the most common legal option.
