Global Volunteers Get to Work!
Sunday, 10 October, 2010 (All day)
GVI Ao Luk is partnered with the Ao Luk Non-Formal Education (NFE) Center. The NFE Center is an extension to Thailand's Ministry of Education providing non formal opportunities for students to gain their primary and secondary education through project based learning at rural satellite education centers. GVI Ao Luk works with the NFE Center to assist these educational objectives through providing free English lessons for the community, assisting with area training and educational events and doing improvements to Ao Luk educational facilities.
On 10 October 2010 visiting Directors of GVI along with GVI Ao Luk volunteers and staff will be working alongside with the Ao Luk NFE Center teachers and students, local villagers and mosque and area leaders to do improvements on an NFE satellite center in Ban Klang, a sub district of Ao Luk. Work for that day will include planting donated trees, changing to energy efficient light bulbs, painting classrooms, fixing windows and doing general cleaning and repairs to the classroom and surrounding area.
The event will begin at 8am and lunch will be served around 12, prepared by the local community. Ban Klang NFE Center can be reached from Krabi town. Krabi-Ao Luk minivans and taxis and buses to Phuket pass by the Ban Klang NFE Center which is located at the Ban Klang mosque. It may be easiest for the media to get a private taxi from Krabi directly to the mosque and it may be easiest for us to speak to the taxi driver to find the location (unless they are Thai media).
