Hi, I am Daniel, a volunteer from the Netherlands.
I came to Chiang Mai to volunteer in a small school called Freedom House. I did this for a month and I really loved it. I had never taught before and I have to admit that it’s very nice to do. You teach the Burmese refugees and they are really thankful if you teach them something as they have no other chance to get education. Also they are very eager to learn, so they listen to everything you say.
I also loved working together with other volunteers. Everyone is nice to each other and we work on lesson plans together and learn from each other as well, that makes it really worth coming here. We did a lot of fun things together like going out, visiting temples, markets and other cultural sites around Chiang Mai.
It was a great experience to do this. If I have the chance to come back I would really love to.
