As you know Chitaree School, Lampang was set-up in 1963 to provide education and a place to live for children whose parents suffered from leprosy. Since the eradication of this disease in about 1968 it has been utilized as a school for the disadvantaged and poor. The student body is made up of children from several different back-grounds, some are orphans, and others have come under the care of the social welfare department, with the majority of students coming from the many hill tribe families which live in the more remote areas of Northern Thailand. In total we 947 Students aged 5-18 years of which 900 live with us in dormitory type accommodation.
Volunteers will do social welfare services such as take care kids in kindergarten, teach English, run some sports or music activities for secondary levels students. It is a unique opportunity for our school as it benefits our senior school students to practice English with foreigners. As experiences with foreigners the students not only enjoyed themselves but there was a noticeable improvement in their confidence, sociability and levels of English proficiency.
We have free accommodation, three common meals and two holiday session same as kids.
