There are potentially always voluntary positions available in a variety of fields, either with the orphanage, or with some of the local schools. We are always looking for enthusiastic and motivated individuals to come and work with the children.
The children go to a local Thai school 5 days a week and so we look for volunteers with skills outside of the normal classroom experience, and in particular practical skills. Skills such as carpentry, weaving, painting/drawing, electrical work etc… which can be of great benefit to the children. If you are interested in finding out more about this, please use our contact page to get in touch with us.
Please note that we have had a huge response from volunteers wishing to spend time at the orphanage over the last few months. The vast majority have left a very positive impression, but a small minority have possibly underestimated the simple life and accommodation at the orphanage. This can unfortunately end up being a bit more of a burden than a positive influence.
We ask that volunteers are able to commit to approximately 1-2 weeks and that they cover expenses such as travel and food.
Basic accommodation is provided for at the orphanage for all volunteers and includes sleeping mat, blankets, mosquito net etc…
