Community projects like teaching English enable Mundo Exchange’s international volunteers to work alongside Laekplian Lokgatat and local teachers with the objective of promoting greater literacy, supporting opportunities for higher education, building vocational skills and enhancing career prospects among students. In Thailand volunteers help improve English skills while working alongside Thai teachers. You might help students learn English while teaching about how to brush your teeth or how to grow nutritious vegetables or how to recycle. Mundo, together with Lokgatat, are dedicated to working with impoverished students who are far, far behind many of their cohorts living in larger cities.
Mundo and Laekplian Lokgatat team up with local organizations to tackle healthcare challenges. We make a difference by supporting village children, mothers, and elders who suffer from poverty-induced ailments including malnutrition, HIV, dementia and developmental challenges. We involve volunteers in bringing care and food to those in dire need and connecting with and assisting medical professionals. Volunteers may also get involved with our Mundo Dental Project, giving children the tools and knowledge to improve their dental hygeine – a huge issue in many developing countries.
We have recently been gifted a telescope, and we are brainstorming how to get it from USA to Thailand. Feel free to shoot us an emai and share your ideas!
We believe in the importance of retaining and passing down rich cultural history and knowledge from our elders. Mundo Exchange collects the memories of cultural traditions of local elders so the youth of the following generations continue to understand, appreciate and preserve their cultural heritage. As a volunteer you may help us collect these precious stories or bring food, companionship and care to elders.
