We're glad you're interested in volunteering. NRT is a Minnesota-based nonprofit working to enhance 21st Century literacy skills in rural Thailand. We believe in order to accomplish this we need to focus on three foundational areas: physical infrastructure of where learning occurs, connecting students to the digital world, and supporting students and teachers with basic English skills that will provide social mobility.
