About the workproject

We need 11 volunteers

Volunt2Thai Community and Social Development Project
V2T was started in 2014 with the aims of helping farmers and their families and to encourage the development of the region with particular emphasis on guiding the children of the villages to a better future. V2T has since grown and with the constant expansion of its network, it has become a Campus & Cultural Center and platform for all kinds of projects.

Your job at V2T is to broaden the boundaries of the children and improve their understanding of the world with your influence and presence so that when they grown up they will be able to act in a wider intercultural dimension. With a better understanding of the world they occupy, they will be better equipped to determine their own destiny. In simplest terms "all project participants will have left behind knowledge and good memories".

If you are considering bringing your talents to us as a volunteer there are a few things that you should know. V2T is an independent campus and cultural centre authorised by the government to help and support children and young people through education. It is a non profit making organisation operating without government grants so as a volunteer you will be required to fund your own stay. The current cost of volunteering is 460 Euro/month

那段难忘的经历,那些可爱的人们。 回想起在 Volunt2Thai 做志愿者的经历,

September 17, 2018

那段难忘的经历,那些可爱的人们。

回想起在 Volunt2Thai 做志愿者的经历,那已经是快是2年前的事情了,很多事情都会随着时间慢慢被遗忘,但是始终有些人或事情一直停留在那美好的瞬间,偶尔我会说起那段不一样的经历,偶尔会想念那些可爱的人。

那些人。
Raimund。时常会在Facebook看到项目更新的情况,偶尔会发信息聊聊相互的情况,一直保持者不错的关系。这2天他请我帮忙写一篇关于项目的体验感,那我就从他这个人说起吧。Raimund是项目的发起人和负责人,来自奥地利,是一个执着于公益事业的老兄弟。他时常会和志愿者去讨论项目的发展问题,了解我们对项目的建议和意见。根据我们每个人不同的特点和意愿,安排具体的工作内容。他特别健谈且充满正能量,晚上我们时常坐在篝火傍边,聊天南海北,而且总会鼓励我做不一样的尝试,支持我的坚持。

泰国大男孩。我义工那段时间他正好学校放假,时常来志愿者中心帮忙。我因为在小学里教中文,常会有沟通不顺畅,他也会帮我翻译。在学校里工作的一个多月,他常会邀请我去他家做客,提供泰国当地的美食,我没事的时候也会去他家的文具店找他聊天。最让我感动的是,我们离开的那天,他和他爸爸开车送我去较远的火车站。

志愿者。我们这一批志愿者来自五湖四海,有英文老师,手工老师,医院护士,工程师等等,大家背景和技能各不相同,所以被工作内容和服务对象也是不太一样。大家都会统一生活在志愿者中心,时间久了慢慢关系和感情越来越好,没事会一起聊聊天,逛逛市场。记得最有意思的是大家一起庆祝圣诞节,相互准备了好多礼物,邀请小朋友们一起参加表演节目,大家开心的跳着,唱着。

那些难忘的经历:
我是一个动手能力很差的人。但在Raimund鼓励下,我开始用废旧的木材做了一把小木凳,从选取合适的材料,切割,组装,上色等他都给了我很多建议。最后我还给它添加了一些中国元素,我在最上面画了2个倒着的福字,让小木凳显得更有灵性。

中文主要是教小朋友比较容易而且易学的,比如数字,日常交流用语。孩子都学得很快,每次下课的时候,孩子喜欢围着我一遍又一遍的说他们刚学过的内容。特别好玩的一次,上课之前我在琢磨今天的教学内容,突然想到电影不见不散里葛优教美国社区警察中文的片段,“今天吃了吗?没吃回家吃点吧”,后来孩子们真的学得很快,天天都会问我同样的问题,给我同样的答案。

当然还有很多有趣的事情,开拖拉机去收大米,骑三轮摩托车载着其他志愿者去教小朋友英文,参加学校运动会,画墙画,学习蘑菇种植,铺地板,除杂草等等。当我想起这点点滴滴,我嘴角就会上扬,微微一笑。

快2年了,我现在只能通过照片视频努力的回忆那些往事,想念那段无忧无虑时光。如果有机会,我愿意回去看看那些人,追忆下当年的影子。
