Project Review

 

Volunteers help create an ecological outdoor environmental learning center in rural Isan, Thailand. Community members who have recognized the importance and need of ecological programs have contacted us and then donated land for this program. There are many Thais who now recognize the importance of learning and teaching about organic farming, global warming, floral and fauna of Thailand, reforestation and more. A volunteer in Thailand will work with Thais to set up outdoor learning stations, build necessary structures, plant seedlings and small plants, help develop compost, water conservation systems and alternative energy models. Other volunteers can create environmental materials used by schools throughout Thailand. This is an on-going project where volunteers often work outside developing earth friendly learning opportunities with their Thai hosts.

Skills/ Qualifications

Arrangements for Room/Food

 

We know that some other organizations ask the schools to provide housing, transport or food for their volunteers. This cuts costs for the organization, but the really poor schools would not be able to get volunteers, because they just can not afford it. In many rural places we can offer you a home stay option. Hosts recieve compensation for the food and services they provide. Volunteers choosing this option pay an additional 5€/day on arrival.

 

Any Missing Important Information

 

For an additional week of stay, you will be paying 50 Euros for each week.
