Description: Sukorn Island (Koh Sukorn) is a small island situated in Palian district, Trang province. The common occupations of the villagers are fishing, rubber tapping, as well as agriculture; growing paddy, watermelons, traditional way of growing vegetables, and keeping livestock. In general the villagers are very generous and still remain the culture of supporting and sharing with each other. Furthermore, they also believe that paddy and agriculture is the main food stability of the village. This will be a continuing collaboration since our first work camp last December 2013 in Sukorn Island, or we may name it a thankful opportunity given by the researcher team and local villagers to bring DaLaa back to their communities again.
Type of Work: During this work camp, we will get a chance to join hands with the community members to preserve the local agriculture, while we can learn about their way of living. Moreover, we will be creating activities and games with children and young people to open their views and let them learn about international culture together with the volunteers. • During late December to early January of next year, it will be rice harvesting season. Volunteers will get chance to harvest rice by themselves. You will have chance for: • Growing vegetables together with village members and students • Making compost, taking care of paddy field, and making bio-fertilizer • Creating fun games and activities for children.
Study Theme: Aims of project • To support the initiatives of local agricultural activities • To fully and wisely utilize local resources • To be part of the communities • To let children be familiar with volunteers and learn in international/multi-cultural atmosphere
Accommodation: Volunteers will stay in a one-storey house. There is one bedroom and 2 bathrooms.
Language: Obviously everyone in Sukorn Island speaks Thai. Studying Thai culture and practicing basic Thai language prior to arrival would be helpful. However, the camp leader can teach some basic Thai during daily meeting or while working.
Requirements: • Volunteers should have positive motivation and being open minded (respect and willingness to understand other cultures and backgrounds). • Living conditions will be in Thai style (willingness to adapt and enjoy simple conditions of living). • Willingness to work and live together, build friendship with local people and other volunteers, let's try to make this world a nicer place to live in!!
