Maria "I was a volunteer at a school at Koh Samui for four weeks and Ohm was teaching together with me. I liked how Ohm always had an idea of how we should teach the students, I felt that she always had thought of everything ahead, making it easy for her to improvise. She was always nice and helpful and she and the rest of the bamboo team always made sure there was vegetarian food for me each lunch. Than..."

    My stay in Koh Samui with Bamboo volunteers was a real blast. And it's mostly thanks to the amazing staff, and especially the leaders in my school; Kooga and Aoum. They are some really nice, caring and helpful people and made the stay so easy and fun. The accomandation vas nice, and the transport oppurtunities were also good. Personally I would maybe have changed the periode I was staying in Koh Samui to a more popular time, as we were only two volunteers in the volunteer house when I volunteered. There is always more fun when there are more people together! But elsewhere I had a really good time with the adorable kids at school, the amazing staff and the beautiful island.

    My time on Koh Samui was the most rewarding and exciting 3 weeks of my life! I was fortunate to get to spend time and get to know the kindest and warmest group of people who were so welcoming and helping to teach us about Thai culture. I was also lucky that Nan and everyone on the project helped me through a lot of injuries! I can't recommend this experience enough, you won't regret it!

    I was lucky enough to spend 6 weeks teaching with lovely Aom, she is a brilliant teacher and the kids love her! She made the daunting task of entering the classroom to teach such an exciting one, I learnt so much from Aom and she provided me with SO much support- both inside and outside of school! Aom is very talented in all that she does ans she is a fantastic photographer which is great for capturing memories! She was avaliable day or night whenever I needed anything, big or small! Aom is caring, understanding and truly has the patience of a saint! I couldn't have picked a better friend to work alongside during my time on samui and was very sad I wasn't allowed to pack her up in my backpack to continue our adventures together!! Thank you SO much for EVERYTHING Aom, it was THE BEST!!

    Kooga is the best tour guide you could ask for. From the moment you arrive, she'll make you feel welcome, as if you were a part of her own family. She's always happy to answer any questions you have and goes out of her way to help you. She's a great wealth of information and I learned so much about Koh Samui, Thailand, and Thai culture from Kooga. She's also an amazing photographer so you don't have to worry too much about capturing the perfect shot because you'll leave with a ton of amazing pictures from your trip (trust me, trying to pick which pictures to post might have been the most stressful part of my trip). Kooga's upbeat personality makes her a ton of fun to be around and the way she genuinely cares about people is a breath of fresh air. Overall, a super sweet girl who will make sure you have an amazing trip!

    My project was absolutely amazing. The coordinators went above and beyond, and the Bamboo Project itself is such an incredibly honorable organization. The money I spent to volunteer went directly to the school where I taught, and all of the employees cared about the community where they worked. I feel very blessed to have been able to work with them

    Aom was my teaching coordinator from Bamboo and she was wonderful! Aom is my favorite person in all of Thailand!! She's very caring and supportive, and helps people become better teachers. Her smile is the quintessential Thai smile, and brightens up whatever room she is in. I had a wonderful time working with her at Ban laem hoy school.

    Extremely friendly, fun-loving, skilled and sincere, Kooga loves working with volunteers to the maximum. She cares deeply about helping new volunteers feel welcomed, settled in and contributing to their best. Off the job, she is a friend you will be grateful to have.
