Volunteer with Burmese Community
Twin Work & Volunteer work closely with a volunteering project that was set up to give the Burmese population in Thailand an opportunity to improve their lives, as Burma has been a particular object of concern for the International community and Human Rights Organisations due to its military regime. The people who suffer include Burmese migrants (both children and adults) who face very difficult situations in Thailand due to the fact that they do not have legal citizenship in Thailand so they are restricted from many simple things that we take for granted such as owning a mobile phone or driving a car and are even subject to controlling martial laws such as an 8pm curfew. Many Burmese children are also unable to attend school, so don’t learn sufficient skills and basic education.
However this project provides the freedom to teach whatever skills they think may be beneficial to the Burmese migrants, such as computer training, English language classes, self-development (such as female empowerment), or simply caring for the children in the community – to help disintegrate the circle of poverty that has affected them for so long. So whilst volunteers get to have an enriching experience, they also help benefit the Burmese community and leave a long-lasting impact of a better life for them and their children.
