Description
Who we are.
Openmind Projects is a nonprofit NGO, charity, based in Thailand. We started in 2002 with the mission to help people to better learning opportunities and the idea that IT can be the poor man’s best help.

Openmind Projects was born as a pioneer computer training project in Thailand. The first three projects were two orphan homes and a village in Thailand.
we support projects, schools, national parks around Southeast Asia and arrange Learning Camps for disadvantaged village children, migrants, refugees, stateless.

We have our own Training Center in Thailand where young trainees from Southeast Asia stay for free to improve themselves.

At Openmind Projects we have Three Learning Pillars:
1. Our own Training Center,
2. Our Learning Camps,
3. Our Field Projects.

We see our Training Center acting as an online learning and sharing hub for young learners. We see us reaching out to more children, villages with our mobile learning camps. We see poor villages and schools being inspired to use the new opportunities of 21st-century learning skills.

"Our Mission is to Creating Learners"

Ignite brighter futures, empower people by creating independent lifelong learners. We introduce 21st-century learning to the disadvantaged in SE Asia. We help them acquire the knowledge and skills they need in a changing world where lifelong learning is a must!


Volunteers are welcome to help.

What we do
Openmind Projects gives education support to project6s in Southeast Asia, schools, villages, and temples, workshops for teachers, material, and recruiting volunteers.
W arrange special learning camps for poor rice farmer children, migrants, stateless and minority groups.
And we support eco-tourism and conservation projects, including marine projects.

What volunteers do
Most volunteers teach. English, focus on conversation, IT, online searching/learning skills and other skills. Other volunteers join eco, conservation, and care projects.
Our teaching method is based learning by doing, learn and apply new skills immediately. We train volunteers to teach this way during our free training week.
Volunteers at schools, temples, care centers, teach about 3 lessons per day plus lesson planning. At other projects, volunteer work depends on local plans. Divers, marine biologists may go on week-long excursions, surveys. Most weekends are free.
