Contribute to United Nations Sustainable Development Goal, UN SDG, #4, Quality Education teaching English abroad in first Thailand and then Fiji. During your free time explore the natural scenery of these two top holiday destinations. Go on an island hopping tour, book a scuba diving lesson, or simply relax on the many idyllic tropical beaches for which these two destinations are well known.
International tourism is a massive contributor to the economies of both Thailand and Fiji. Many tourists speak English, which means that many local employers are looking to hire local staff that are comfortable speaking English with visitors from around the world. Assisting with English language education in these nations not only allows volunteers to contribute toward UN SDG #4, Quality Education, but also toward UN SDG #8, Decent Work and Economic Growth.
By joining this project, volunteers will first travel to Thailand’s province of Phang Nga to assist local kindergartens and primary schools with English language education. Volunteers will then travel on to Fiji’s main island of Viti Levu to deliver sessions focused on early childhood development working with children 5 years and under. Here they will utilise their theoretical learnings to implement specific foundational perspectives, including teaching concepts such as number sense, number concept, number development, spatial orientation and spatial insight, among others.
