Summary

In Krabi, Thailand, English skills open up doors for people in the local tourist and business industries as well as numerous other educational and professional opportunities.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

As Thais are lacking in their English skills they rely on foreigners to come in as teachers in schools. By providing Thai teachers with assistance, training and professional development they can provide quality language classes for students on their own, breaking the cycle of reliance on outsiders for knowledge.

How will this project solve this problem?

We will provide a number of professional development opportunities such as providing native speaking teaching assistants, offering English classes outside of school hours and holding specialized workshops giving local teachers the chance to develop. Help raise additional vital funds by joining our hiking Charity Challenge in Khao Sok National Park and get to visit this project at the end!

Potential Long Term Impact

By providing schools with continuous English teachers, students will be provided with skills to improve their future educational, economic and career opportunities. With time local teachers will be able to cut out the need for outside assistance.
