Volunt2Thai builds bridges of knowledge, skills, culture and friendship between people of all ages from different cultures. Our location in a Thai village far from the tourist routes, is dominated by family values and the village’s daily life is still very much the way it has been for centuries.
As a volunteer, you get the possibility to work and learn, with a great variety of things. You will work with the locals and gain knowledge through practical work. Your skills and experience will be used as an important component of the cultural exchange program.
Currently the volunteers have the opportunity to teach the children English. The lessons will be held at local schools and temples. In the future we intend to educate the students in German as well. Furthermore, we are trying to create sustainable agricultural projects in collaboration with the local farmers.
Volunt2Thai is based in Ban Nong Phong in the Ban Lao Tambon near Amphoe Phen and Udon Thani, in the northeastern province of Thailand, which is renowned for its beautiful lakes, forests, rivers and historic sites. This is where orientation and general administration is carried out. Volunteer projects are located in the surrounding area. A vibrant exchange between foreigners and villagers will take place.
- Volunteers must be minimum 18 years of age at the beginning of the program and serious about working. While it is possible to have lots of fun here, this is not a “vacation.”
- Volunteers must have adequate travel insurance and a valid Thai Visa.
