Kuraburi Burmese Learning Center: New Volunteer Program in Partnership with Grassroots

Sharon, who came to us through our partner Twin UK, taught English conversation full time at the school to students aged six to twelve years. “I quickly developed a strong bond with the teachers at the school. They were very supportive. Definitely a recommended placement; Andaman Discoveries did everything they could to make my stay enjoyable.” The students embraced Sharon, and their confidence level changed noticeably during the month Sharon was there. Andaman Discoveries’ Volunteer Coordinator Karen observed: “Confidence is so critical for anyone learning a new language. These marginalized children face so many odds, and this center gives them a chance at a more hopeful future. Andaman Discoveries is happy to form this partnership.”
Anyone interested in volunteering at the Kuraburi Burmese learning can should contact Andaman Discoveries for more information. Volunteering information will also be posted soon.
