Hosted by DaLaa, this community project focuses on alternative education and improving spiritual and mindful ways to live and work. 

WHAT WILL I BE DOING ON THIS PROJECT?

The project supports a small community of a few families who have decided to change their way of living and create a community based on a liberal way of life through spiritual work and active daily life. The community is connected to a center for Buddhist alternative medicine (Mor Keaw).

The community welcomes volunteers to help them to organise education activities for both children and adults. The community already have good knowledge about alternative education (already practicing home schooling), traditional health, agriculture and herbs. Your tasks include creating alternative education and creative English teaching lessons for the children in the community, participating in daily activities with villagers for the benefits of the community such as agriculture, and assisting to organise health and family camps together with the center for Buddhist alternative medicine.

As a volunteer you will be included as a part of the community and their life style toward harmonious relationship between people and environment.

WHERE WILL I BE STAYING?

The project is located in the Cha Uat district of Nakorn Sri Tammarat province situated between the Bantad mountain range and the South Chinese sea. It has wetland forest, canals, palm and rubber plantations, rice fields and other vegetable gardens. 

You will be staying in a basic accommodation with a local family that is part of community.
