Schoolchildren in Myanmar

This Short-term Special consists of a mixture of hands-on building work and time spent interacting with and caring for children at a school for the deaf.

The building section of the work will see the volunteers living in the Inle Lake area, working alongside local carpenters to build a traditional Burmese stilt house for a family in need, while also interacting with local villagers and Buddhist monks.

At the school for the deaf in Yangon, volunteers help prepare and run educational games that will help local children develop their social, physical and cognitive skills, as well as improve their overall health and hygiene.

In the evenings volunteers will be able to socialise together and take part in cultural activities, such as traditional meals and local dances. On weekends, you will have the opportunity to explore the country’s many beautiful temples and picturesque landscape and markets.

This placement is fully researched, safety audited and risk assessed in accordance with the British Standard BS8848 for the Adventure Travel Sector.
