teaching2Help educate hilltribe children

A 5-day teaching and sightseeing experience for only 12,000B per person

The Group Teaching programme spans five days (throughout the year*).This is a valuable opportunity to give children a helping hand towards a better life, and learn about the hilltribes of northern Thailand at the same time. Volunteers depart from Mirror with a new insight, and often a new outlook, on life. It not only puts life into perspective, it reignites values that can be forgotten in the hustle and bustle of daily existence back home.
