Our Projects Abroad
Since its foundation, The Cardoner Project has sought to engage communities overseas in undertakings that seek to express a recognition and respect for often excluded and underprivileged groups. From teaching English in Vietnamese or Thai schools to working with families to build houses in Tijuana, Mexico; The Cardoner Project aims to inspire self-esteem and hope in the communities we encounter. With an increasing number of projects in Vietnam, Thailand, Nepal, Ecuador and Mexico, there are many short and long term volunteering opportunities available.
Our Immersion programme offers 2-3 week experiences of cultural exposure, hard work in basic conditions, and shared examen and reflections every day. These are profound experiences of receiving hospitality from those materially poor, yet spiritually rich.
YEAR OF SERVICE
Our Service Year programme offers school-leavers a deeper immersion in the language and culture of peoples in Northern Thailand and Micronesia for 12 months. In 2016 we will extend this programme to Vietnam, Cambodia and the Philippines.
Our volunteers teach English language and numeracy. We prepare them as much as is possible before they go, working around the demands of the HSC.
