The Education for Development Foundation (EDF) ensures that children are given the education they deserve. The foundation works in Northern (Issan) Thailand, Cambodia and Laos. The people behind EDF believe that childen, especially those in poverty-stricken areas, are entitled to equal opportunities for education.

Volunteering with EDF offers the opportunity to teach English to children at their local school and at the same time work on their school grounds – painting the walls of the school or doing carpentry jobs. Health education classes are also taught to the villagers.

Aside from these, there are other volunteer positions available at EDF: fundraisers, PR volunteers, copywriters, proofreaders and translators.
