Meet the Lift Our Planet team at the Koh Samui International Airport. We’ll escort you to the hotel and give you time to acclimate. In the evening, join us for a volunteer welcome dinner at the villa.
After breakfast, we’ll begin orientation, where you’ll receive a cultural education and Thai language lessons. Afterwards, we’ll embark on a tour of the island and enjoy team building activities on the shores of the beach.
In an adventure packed day, we’ll be visiting Koh Madsum (Pig Island), snorkeling along the coral reef, speedboating, and kayaking! We’ll relax on the beach of the small island and spend time getting to know one another and our motivations for humanitarian work!
Today we’ll embark on our first day of service! Working alongside the school’s English teachers, you’ll be assembling an English camp for the students. We’ll prepare and deliver lessons to students by day and explore the city by night. To celebrate, we’ll enjoy a nice beachside dinner.
We’ll continue to return to the school each morning, leading students in exciting language learning games and exercises. Our TESL work will focus on reading and pronunciation through activity centered work. The evenings are free to explore and experience the island.
Travel to Elephant Jungle Sanctuary, where we’ll get to help feed, care for, and bathe the elephants. In the afternoon you’ll get to participate in an exciting scavenger hunt at Fisherman’s Village, and then we’ll wrap up the day with a beachside Farewell Dinner.
Say goodbyes to your new LOP family and travel to the airport. A member of the Lift Our Planet staff will escort you and assist you with checking in and boarding your flight from the Koh Samui airport.
