Immerse yourself in Laos culture when you travel to Luang Pranbagn to teach English to Buddhist novice monks as well as other Lao children and young adults.

This volunteer project increases future employment and academic opportunities for the local community members. 

Many boys from rural villages in Laos become novice mons at the Buddhist monastries in order to fain access to education as well as room and board. As a volunteer you will contribute to education initiatives by teaching English to both novice monks, local lao students and young adults.

The age and confidence level of the students vary, as a volunteer you will assist in building capacity for local teachers by preparing lessons and resources. 

All of our projects have short, mid & long-term objectives which are directly linked to the United Nations Sustainable Development goals (UN SDGs). This enables us to report on our collaboratve impact across the world as well as help out local communities and partners measure and visualise their contributions to the UN SGDs.


Project Highlights:

  • Discover Laos' ancient city of Luang Prabang, a UNESCO World Heritage Site
  • Visit local sites such as the Mekong river, beautiful waterfalls and breath-taking mountains in your spare time
  • Increasing quality and access to education for local community members, enabling them to increase their future employment opportunities and improving quality of life for themselves, their families and communities


Costs / Benefits

Rather than abandon programs that recruit fewer volunteers we strategically invest from our fully staffed sites to help maintain our presence across the globe. The remaining 35% that is not directly invested in our programs covers the cost of volunteer recruitment, the operations of our head office.
