Since its establishment (2004) the Robert Dyckerhoff Foundation is active in the province of Mae Hong Son in North Western Thailand. It is our first priority to give children from the mountain villages the opportunity to have their secondary education. At the moment the foundation supports 17 university students, 40 in high school and 32 in a vocational college. Former scholars were already graduated as doctors, teachers, and clerks. Now they are working in their native region to evolve and establish the infrastructure. Practical education is equally important for the region. This is why we started a cooperation with the local Vocational College in 2012. In autumn 2015 the second Robert Dyckerhoff dormitory was opened at the Vocational College.
The Robert Dyckerhoff Foundation seeks

As a volunteer for the Robert Dyckerhoff Foundation you are working at the local secondary school or at the vocational college.

Technical education or experience is helpful for the work at the Vocational College. Your second duty is the work for the foundation. You will give extra lessons for the fellows who live in the Dyckerhoff dormitories. Furthermore, you will collaborate and accompany ongoing projects. You will help to develop new projects. It is your job to evolve and support the work of the foundation. I.e. at the Vocational College projects in the sectors of textile and gastronomy have started. And besides that, you are responsible for the communication including the intern communication between Germany and Thailand and PR, as the quarterly newspaper. Another duty are the interviews and the selection process of future scholars. This includes visiting the villages around Mae Sariang. In the future, we will continue to send two voluntaries to work on behalf of the foundation in Mae Sariang. Every volunteer has separate duties in one of the two schools. At the same time, both volunteers will support each other in the general work for the foundation in Mae Sariang.
