We are a co-working space that is involved in supporting many Social Impact causes on the small island of Ko Lanta.

Here are a few causes we are involved in:

- We are the distribution centre and base for a project in Lanta involved in waste management. This project is involved in cleaning beaches and other areas every week, also, supply and distribution of metal water bottles and refill stations to help stem the flow of plastic.

- English & Basic Computer skills teaching. Our members will be soon embarking on a new relationship with our local school to help teach some basic classes and help improve education locally.

- WordPress Courses are currently being planned in an ambitious project with Human Made & WordPress to bring good education to a group of potential local young adults of Koh Lanta.

- We also support other local causes, such as Animal Welfare organisations.

We require Front / back-end Web developer, with some networking skills (programming routers).

DELIVERABLES

What I require over the next months: 

- Maintain and improve word press website.

- Implement new features for backend community network. 

- Implementing Authentication on our LAN/WiFI.
