Volunteer on projects with the Akha protecting Akha culture and language.

The Akha are an indigenous hill tribe who live in small villages at higher elevations in the mountains of Thailand, Burma, Laos, and Yunnan Province in China.

Our chief work with the Akha is providing security for human rights, and repairing damage which has been done to the community. Communities with protected human rights flourish, communities without human rights drop into despair and exploitation. The Akha community is broadly and radically exploited by Thai society.

As a volunteer you will be working on a wide range of projects that help protect the Akha community, from documentation to education. We do not believe in "Development" which means to remove something from its protective envelope. Development, as often presented, means that the outside world gives communities roads and electric while taking the bulk of their resources and autonomy.
