Holiday volunteer opportunity in Bagan

Are you a fluent English speaker heading to Bagan for your holiday?

Sanon Training Restaurant, a social enterprise helping Myanmar youth, has started an English volunteer project where fluent English speaking visitors can interact with students. 

As part of their twelve month hospitality course, Sanon students study English and this is an extra opportunity for them to practice listening and speaking. So in between visiting pagodas why not take a break and head to Sanon which is based in Nyaung-U.

The restaurant is also a great place to have a coffee, a cocktail or a tasty meal.

The best part of visiting Sanon is knowing you’ve contributed to a Myanmar student’s learning journey and that any money you've spent will be used to support local youth.

If you are interested email before you arrive or pop into the restaurant to book in a time and day.

Holiday English Volunteering runs between 2-4pm most days and you will be required to complete some simple paperwork.
