In early 2013 our GVI Thailand hub reopened in the Ban Nam Khem village of Phang Nga. Staff and volunteers have been working with a whole new range of schools and partners to provide support in TEFL and teaching as well as new initiatives of health and conservation. The project hub is located in a low income fishing community. The local schools are weak in education and students particularly test low in English. Teachers here heavily rely on foreign assistance to teach English at their schools of often no English is taught as the Thai teachers don’t have the English language or confidence to pass spoken English on to their students.
Through future trainings for teachers and our local partners in the region GVI staff and volunteers will be able to provide much needed support and professional development in a fun and supportive environment. We hope that these opportunities will inspire Thai teacher to experiment with more student centered teaching methods and bring more English into their classrooms to provide their students with skills that will greatly benefit their education and career in the future.
Please stay tuned for news of more training and charitable projects at our new home in Phang Nga!
