Travel to Teach volunteer restoration projects are a mostly school holiday activity (February-May and October.) Based in the rural parts of Thailand we work in the small communities that don’t have enough funding to maintain or repair their school grounds therefore the money you bring to the project has a direct impact on the local community. The projects are often designed according the to the skills of the volunteers so if you already have experience or are a craftmen, electrician etc these projects are an excellent opportunity to put some of your skills to good use or gain some useful experience.

Volunteers who have no previous experience need not worry as there are plenty of simple tasks to do such as cleaning, gardening and painting. For bigger tasks we employ local masons, carpenters, electricians and craftsmen.
Food is paid for by our volunteers. Often when we teach in schools we are invited to share the school lunch with our fellow teachers. T2T has a welcome dinner and frequent "parties" and we often cook meals in our dorms. Apart from that participants are responsible for their meals. T2T has dorms in Nongkhai, Namsom and Chiang Mai. Please see individual location pages for more information. Volunteers living in dorms are responsible for keeping their accommodation clean. In smaller villages we offer Home stays, which means that you will be living with a family where you can expect to live at the typical standards. You will be in a clean friendly environment but don't expect any luxuries. We will supply you with the telephone numbers of our local T2T English speaking personnel.
Vaccinations: You should tell your doctor that you are likely to go on a jungle trip in Northeastern Thailand and that you will live in villages in Isan. Keep in mind, Nongkhai is considered to be an urban area and one need not worry about malaria pills for staying exclusively in Nongkhai. Also visit the WHO's (World Health Organisation) Travelers health information.
Insurance: One of the conditions of entry onto our programs is that volunteers have travel insurance. Most importantly the insurance needs to include medical treatment and repatriation in case of unforeseen accidents or illnesses. Volunteers should purchase insurance independently and bring a copy of their insurance certificate with them for their local co-ordinator to check before starting their program.
