You can volunteer also when you are retired. Here are some of the good reasons why:

  1. Older volunteers have longer life span

If you volunteer at an older age, you tend to be more physically active and the charity work may be part of a healthier lifestyle.

There is also a sense of purpose that serves as a great motivator to get out of the house and keep moving.

  1. Brain exercise

Volunteers need to be skilled in problem solving. Older volunteers may improve their cognitive health while having to accomplish tasks.

  1. Volunteers feel less lonely

When you engage in a volunteer activity at an older age, you tend to cope with life situations better.

According to reports, volunteers experience shorter periods of depression after the death of a loved one.

People who are isolated, living in remote areas, benefit even more, because they engage in social activities and interact with people.

Many studies proved that being with young people makes you feel better.

How can you help even if you are retired and living in another country for our foundation?

What are the things you should bear in mind when you decide to volunteer:

Being open

A volunteer should be ready to encounter a different worldview from the one he or she has.

Many of the ideas you have about sexuality, ideology, politics might be seen completely different in some other part of the world.

You can meet people that are not going to share your views.

Be prepared for openness for diversities and differences.

Being respectful

Since many of volunteers seek for opportunities abroad, it is wise to be respectful for cultural, religious, ethnic and even sexual diversity.

It implies sometimes wearing something you shouldn’t normally do or adjusting your habits.

Being flexible

There are many other things that will show up while volunteering that you cannot anticipate. It is always good to be flexible and accept the challenges.

If there is something you cannot accept, at least adapt to it to an extend it doesn’t bother you.

There could be many mosquitos that drive you crazy, for example. You cannot accept them, but you can always do the means to make them bother you less.

With us you will gain so much – you will be able to:

raise your interpersonal and professional skills,

learn about local life all over Thailand,

help children speak English and in this way enable them to seek a better future,

make friends with Thais and expats,

expand your views and

get to know yourself better.

Whether it is a self-serving drive, relational drive, or even belief drive on the highest level, there are so many reasons people do the volunteering.

People join a certain organization because it meets their needs. It may be business, friendship or networking.

Many people are also looking for a mentor or want to work free of charge just because otherwise they wouldn’t be able to get closer to the certain person they admire!

In doing so, they can either end up really working for that person or staying closely in touch with him. After all, having a good recommendation from someone influential or important to us, is always a good thing.

Others volunteer out of passion for a cause. The ones who believe in the cause have the highest level of motivation and are more ready to compromise their own comfort for something greater.

People who volunteer are more likely to continue volunteer again in life. Volunteering doesn’t address only young people but also older people. Most of them have already volunteered earlier.

It showed great impact on health, because when you help for greater good, you feel you are contributing to something, so your time and energy spent in volunteering has a meaning.

While working as a volunteer, you have a chance of meeting many new people. Exactly thanks to that experience, you can end up doing the job you really like.

Social networking matters and it is definitely something you will gain doing your work for free.

It also happens that during the volunteering you realize it is not the suitable job for you and it will bring you more to look after what you want more to do. In other words, there are many possibilities open for you.

Volunteer work is good for society. In doing something good for the wellbeing of others, you feel so much rewarding. It gives you a sense of purpose and it helps you realize that you are doing something concrete to make this world a bit better.

You can join our foundation and be a part of a sustainable change in education. We start from Thailand. Our goal is to spread also to other countries in need of free English education. If you are from one of those who are in need of it, then you can after this experience contribute even more in your own country.

You can help with investing your time in doing something very useful for children who otherwise cannot study English because their parents lack finance. In this way, you give them an equal chance to search for the better future that their wealthier peers have.

You can help us in so many ways – in creating lesson plans for classes, writing blogs and articles, teaching and helping children understand the material, writing comic books that will make children love reading, illustrate the books.

You will leave a big impact on children’s lives for the rest of it.
