Summary

SE Asian village children lack good education. Tech and modern pedagogy can help! OpenmindProjects sets up a new Training Center in Thailand for young villagers to train as camp leaders (for our Learning Camps), as teacher assistants at schools and digital ambassadors to train local people to use IT/internet for education and work. We will adapt our learning by doing pedagogy to virtual training for village children with overseas volunteers and IT expertise.

Challenge

Unequal wealth means unequal education! People in rural Southeast Asia are poor, lack good education and remain poor. Schools are poor, teaching obsolete. Teachers are not trained to use modern tech and pedagogy. Village, migrant and minority children have suffered most from the impact of Covid on education. Therefore, village students are left behind and end up in low paid jobs and remain poor.

Solution

OMP will upgrade a new training center in Thailand to improve and adapt our pedagogy to online learning as well. Local trainees will learn IT, English, learn to lead camps, assist local teachers and volunteers and act as digital ambassadors to help small business owners to use digital solutions for work. About 200 village and migrant children will take part in six camps per year. We adapt and develop our training and share our experiences with schools and teachers.

Long-Term Impact

Since 2001, we have helped 2500 campers and over 360 long-term trainees and trained over 2000 overseas volunteers! They have benefited from our learning by doing pedagogy, using IT and English to learn and solve problems. Young, successful people with improved tech and English skills can be camp leaders, help at schools and in villages, find better jobs or go on to study! Our Training Center will empower poor people, inspire and be open to teachers, villagers and small business as well.
