Our volunteer program focuses on building projects in local communities, and volunteers can choose which opportunity to work in Asia most interests them.

Project details

The project is based in Phang Na, Southeast Thailand, home to a real mixture of ethnic and immigrant communities. Due to the number of immigrants, human trafficking is a very serious issue, and this project aims at improving the living conditions of the families and children living in the poorest areas. It is very clear to see how much difference volunteers involved in building projects make to the communities of Thailand. When you come to do volunteer work in Asia, you don’t need to be a builder to make a difference to these peoples' lives.

Recently, the project has focused on redeveloping a childcare center, making it safer and more hygienic. In addition, the local staff is currently creating beautiful gardens around the area and teaching the local communities how to maintain a nice living environment. This building project is perfect for volunteers who aren't afraid to get stuck in.

How you will help in Thailand

Notes from the local NGO :

This region was affected by the Tsunami and so communities who were displaced back then are still living here. Some Burmese migrants are also living in poor conditions and we can help to do construction work around their schools as income levels are low and there is lack of government funding towards these people.

Every day tasks involve : beautification, creating gardens and building work.

Testimonials

  • STUDENT GROUP FROM UEA UNI Building project

    "We were a group of 17 from the University of East Anglia, UK. We spent 14 days on a development project in Surin helping to build a childcare center in an impoverished suburb of the town. We approached the local fundation with our proposal to come to Thailand not really knowing who are what to do. The team were just spot on with everything we needed. Everyone felt involved from the get go with loads of different projects running in and around the community. It was amazing to see out results in such a short time. Can't wait to come back!"

We work with an organisation that supports community-based projects in Asia to maximise improvements to human and environmental issues. The 45 organisation staff has guided almost 3,000 volunteers since its creation in 2002. The aims of its volunteering programme are to change the needs of the communities, provide education and knowledge to the local communities and provide volunteer and financial help in tandem to ensure demonstrable, lasting change. Our local Foundation is dedicated to improving health, safety and hygiene at schools throughout Asia, as well as making it possible for people like you to make a difference. From building projects like demolishing unhygenic toilets and rebuilding clean facilites, brightly coloured school buildings and fun, ongoing community projects such as allotments and farms, the work in Asia that it is able to do is very varied. It can also place volunteers who are keen on teaching english to children or working in an elephant camp in Thailand. Development and sense of community are two areas that it focuses on in its projects, and this is definitely reflected in the success that it has acheived throughout Asia.
