Volunteer Teacher Program
As far as education is concerned, ‘teacher’ is one of the most important factors. We see that the school we help do not have enough teachers to teach. One of the main reason is that the school is too far out and is hard to travel there. The two schools we help in Chiangrai are all by the border between Thailand and Myanmar. It is hard to find a qualified teacher who is willing to go out and help that far.
Happy Heart Foundation saw the lack of qualified teachers in each school and so the ‘Volunteer Teacher Program’ was launched. The aim of this is to find volunteers who are willing to help out with teaching in the designated school for a 1 year contract. This can help to cover shortage of teachers in each school. Happy Heart foundation act as a middleman providing volunteer teaches for schools in remote areas and donates some budget to the volunteered teacher once a month. So far, we have a new English teacher for each school and they love being in the midst of hills and nature.
