Volunteering as an English teacher in Laos

For 2,5 months I am now on the road trip of my lifetime: a ramble through Asia, doing volunteer work and living the life of a digital nomad.

After I snagged my job as a CFO, I decided for myself that I will find new projects and opportunities in the world, which I can take on and master.

Over the last two weeks I was involved in one of them.

In Laos I slipped in the role of an English teacher for SAE Lao Project (https://lnkd.in/fCSVKhB). I had to teach English to children.

These children are so motivated and focussed on learning this language, because education is one of their few chances against drugs, child trafficking and prostitution, which are so widespread in this area.

These children can learn for free and all of them have the same oppurtunity to develop their skills.

It was a big experience and I am curious to see the other upcoming ones.

Let’s all of us, be more involved in this kind of projects, because if you want to see the change in the world, you have to be the change.

I’m always interested in hearing from business owners, entrepreneurs, as well as economic development professionals. Please contact me via InMail on my LinkedIn profile: https://www.linkedin.com/in/sebjanus/
