About the workproject

We need 2 volunteers

Our team is composed by Tao, her 2 kids, Kevin and Mike.
We run an eco-touristic logde
located in a small rural village in the area of Kasi, on the bank of the river, surrounded by limestone's cliffs and mountains, jungle and rice fields.
Beside the eco-tourism project we run an organic farm ( vegetables, fruits and livestock )

Recently, thanks to private donations, we built up a new space and we are ready to start a new educational project : the Kids Creativity Center.
The project aim to give to the kids the opportunity to express their creativity wich is often neglected cause the lack of facilities, materials, tools, instruments, guides and especially support of their families.
We think that be guided on learning whatever kind of art and felt supported about their choices and curiosities may enrich their life and especially keep them away from the big drug problem (metamphetamine) that is dangerously expanding and causing serious damages to the social structure in the last few years.

Beside the art teaching, we definitely want to provide, as efficiently as possible, English lessons. Of course the two things don't necessarily have to be separated.

We are looking for dedicated and passionated volunteers willing to teach English and any kind of art to the kids.
It doesn't have to be necessarily something ambitious.
It can be just as simple as drawing or painting, showing them how to combine the colors in order to create different tonalities or build up something from material's waste.
Origami, Guitar, Collage are simple examples. But it could also be something like beatbox, magic tricks or martial arts.
It doesn't really matter. What's matter is that the kids will be stimulate, feel supported and will learn english as much as possible.

Project like this are quite rare in the area, so mind that you could make a huge difference in the kids's lifes and this is why we are looking for passionate and active people and not for people who are only looking for a cheap way to travel.

This is a charity project, We have no profit from that, we spend our time and our money on it, so a donation would be really appreciated but of course not mandatory.

WE ARE ALSO LOOKING FOR:

- PEOPLE ABLE TO DESIGN AND PAINT SIGNBOARDS AS WELL AS MAKE GRAPHIC DECORATIONS.

- GRAPHIC DESIGNERS ABLE TO MAKE ADVERTISING, WEBSITES AND SOCIAL MEDIA'S PROFILES.

- PHOTOGRAPHERS AND FILMAKERS WHO COULD REPORT OUR ACTIVITIES, EDIT VIDEOS AND PUT THEM ONLINE.
