Project Review

One of the drawbacks of Thailand’s rapid development has been the overcrowding of city streets and loss of green spaces.  Due to this reason, recently a movement was initiated by Chiang Mai City Hall in an attempt to beautify the city.  This movement included the development of the parks and green spaces, along with putting flowers and other plants where they aren’t usually seen, like bridges or intersections.  The people of Chiang Mai take great pride in the appearance of their city, however, like in so many cities throughout the world, Chiang Mai City’s budget for beautifying the city isn’t very large and any assistance volunteers can give in this area will be greatly appreciated by the residents of Chiang Mai.  Volunteers work with local staff on planting and planning.

Any Missing Important Information

Travel insurance is not included in the program fee. We prefer to let participants decide what kind of coverage they need. Since you are about to volunteer in another country, we ask you to do necessary preparation before going there. It is best if volunteers arrive on a date below before 8pm, so orientation can take place over the weekend and volunteers can start their program bright and early on Monday.  Arrival Dates for 2010: January 2, January 15, January 29, February 12, February 26, March 12, April 2, April 16, April 30, May 14, June 4, June 18, July 2, July 16, July 30, and August 13.
