About the local hosting organizationWatphothawart is a very small school in Baan Kokpho, a Buddhist village of about 450 people in Phatthalung province, Southern Thailand. The school director, who we met through a former DaLaa project host and who shares our values, would like to welcome volunteers to help to organize English lessons or other fun activities with the 49 students from kindergarten to Grade 6 (5-12 years old) for these 2 weeks. The English skills of the students are very poor. They are not familiar with foreigners.
