Volunteer IT Work with Openmind Projects

Help to bridge the digital divide with our IT volunteer opportunities in Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Nepal.


Overview

 

Why do IT volunteer work abroad?

The Digital Divide means people in the poorer, rural areas of Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Burma have little access to ICT equipment and training.  Information technology and the internet can be the key to gaining knowledge when other educational resources are limited.  Share your IT skills and you can give people access to a better future.

Why become an IT volunteer with Openmind Projects?

Burmese and Karen gilrs help setup computers donated by Openmind Projects

ICT for development is where Openmind Projects started, as the IT in Isan project.  We gave young people in rural Thailand equipment to facilitate their learning.  We now help people across Southeast Asia develop their IT skills.  We also distribute donated computers to poor Thai, Lao, Burmese and Khmer schools.  

In 2008, Openmind Projects was a Finalist in the Stockholm Challenge for use of ICT for Development.

How Openmind Projects will help you

During your three-day Volunteer & Cross Culture Training we will help you prepare for your project.  You’ll learn about our demonstrate-explore-discover method of teaching and get access to helpful resources.  We’ll also put you in touch with previous volunteers from your project for advice on activities.
