Do you have a passion for teaching and working with children? Why not teach in an island paradise!

This essential education program is located in Koh Samui - a stunning tourist island situated in the Gulf of Thailand. A playground for holidaymakers, it is not hard to see why the island is visited by hundreds of thousands of tourists every year.

However, poverty and destitution in this stunning location is rife, and its schools suffer from under funding and low staffing levels. Teaching materials are severely lacking and antiquated and computers are few and far between. Lesson plans and curriculum’s suffer immensely, but most importantly so do the students.

English is a prerequisite for many jobs in Koh Samui given its tourism market, which is why the ability to speak even the most basic English stands a better chance of these children breaking free from poverty. Volunteers on this wonderful program will be working directly with children to improve their English language skills – and by doing so – improving their chance for a brighter future.


Goals of this Project:

Provide English language skills and teach other subjects to vulnerable children in Koh Samui

Teach and interact with marginalized children in Thailand

Improve the future prospects of some of Thailand’s most impoverished children, and help them to break the poverty cycle

Expose volunteers and children to different people and cultures

Here's why more and more people are choosing to become a LOVE VOLUNTEER!

Need - We work directly with local charities on grass-roots community development projects. Our focus is on providing support where it is really needed - not holidays! We keep volunteer numbers at sustainable levels to meet the needs of each project - not to increase revenue!

Impact - By becoming a Love Volunteer you are saying to the world that you are a REAL volunteer and your focus is on supporting people and communities in need. You're not just a tourist and your goals include much more than selfies and hangovers. Your contribution with LV will be real and measurable. You will change lives, and one of them will be your own!
