Volunteering abroad is a truly empowering experience both for the underprivileged children as well as for those who embark on the volunteer teaching experience.
The ability to speak and converse in English provides the local people in South-east Asia and South Africa with a wide array of employment opportunities. Many local people cannot afford to send their children to schools where English is taught and this entraps their children in poverty as employment opportunities for those who cannot speak English are scarce.
Volunteer in South East Asia
TravelBud offers Westerners the opportunity to venture to Thailand or Myanmar to do volunteer teaching at non-profit English camps. These camps are scattered throughout Thailand as well as in the hill tribes of Myanmar and the city of Yangon in Myanmar. This is a truly enriching experience, providing Westerners with an opportunity to immerse oneself in the foreign culture and with the local people whilst too giving back to the local communities through volunteer teaching.
Volunteer teachers do not earn a salary but they will be provided with free accommodation and food. Volunteer English teachers will also have a much more flexible work schedule than those who choose to teach English at a school in Thailand or Myanmar. This enables volunteer teachers to see as much of the country as possible while also having the free time to travel far and wide across South-east Asia.
