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.
Major responsibilities include:
Our fees include
Not included are costs for
No specific skills and qualifications are needed to join the volunteer program. However, prospective volunteers are expected to be warm, caring and helping individual with a very genuine want to learn and help others.
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.
For an additional week of stay, you will be paying 50 Euros for each week.
