Come aboard for an extraordinary human experience !

Teach English in our free English School !

Volunteers don't necessarily need experience in teaching English or working with children. We are looking for open-minded volunteers with a responsible attitude and a willingness to help, who are interested in sharing knowledge and stories. We would love to learn about your culture and  share the Lao culture with you.

Students are excited to meet English speakers from all over the world!

Daily English lessons


NK English School offers free English classes to the children and young adults of Nong Khiaw and the surroundings areas.


Our main goal is to give the local community the opportunity to learn English for free. We currently hold English classes five afternoons per week with over 150 students registered. 

The English courses take place from Monday to Friday and are divided into 4 groups. Our students are aged from 5 to 18 years old.

Our purpose is to give them the opportunity to access additional English education in a friendly environment, where traditional learning is coupled with a set of activities that allow them to put their lessons into practice in a dynamic and fun way.


Our English programs have been validated by the village's Ministry of Education. We have 2 local teachers who ensure Lao/English translation and vice versa, which ensures a better understanding for the students. As our students are divided into 4 classes, each volunteer is assigned 2 classes that they will remain in for the entire stay in our school.


Volunteers are divided into two teams and teach only 2 hours per day (from 4:30 PM to 5:30 PM) with support from our local teachers. Their main role is to assist the teachers during the classes. For the students, it’s a plus. They are very excited to learn with foreigners from all over the world.

Help us with our recycling projects!


NK Environment aims to make young people aware of ecology and to clean up the environment by collecting and recycling plastic waste. The impact of this project will be ecological, sanitary, beneficial for biodiversity and educational.

Our first step is to transform the site where volunteers live into a zero waste and organic site.

  • Paper and plastic recycling

  • Creation of ecological awareness courses

  • Land development 

  • Organization of waste collection 




Every morning the volunteers and teachers meet at 9am in the office. For a good hour and a half, the volunteers prepare the afternoon's lessons and activities, according to the weekly topic. We have a wide range of manuals, books, games and online courses that the volunteers can use for the preparation.

Then at 10.30 a.m., it's time for crafts. Depending on the skills of each volunteer, they are given several assignments each week. For example, making new furniture for the site, renovating the bungalows, taking care of the garden, recycling paper and plastic with our recycling machines, managing the social networks, preparing the Saturday night charity event, etc.

12.30 pm is break time. Volunteers have lunch and free time to rest, visit the surroundings and enjoy the water activities on the river until 4pm.

At 4pm, it is time for classes. Volunteers and teachers head to the school for lessons until 7.30 pm.
