The exotic northern city of Chiang Mai is the location for this essential program working with at-risk children. This volunteer program is especially suitable for:
Leeftijd 18+
Alleenstaanden
Koppels
50+
As a result of extreme poverty in ethnic minority villages and internal conflict in neighbouring Myanmar, destitute families seek refuge for their children in the city.  The Childcare Centers this program supports aim to provide quality care and education for these vulnerable children, offering them a chance to escape the vicious cycle of poverty.  Volunteers provide much needed support for the program through providing native English exposure, arranging fun and educational games and activities and building the children's skills in social interaction. Volunteers on this program play an integral role in helping disadvantaged children.  The project supports a number of Children's Homes in the Chiang Mai area, each providing shelter to between 5 and 50 children ranging in age from 4 to 18 years.  So there is a raft of needs to fulfill! Volunteers focus on spending time with the children and providing fun and education through social interaction.

Activities may including helping the local staff with daily routines such as cleaning and cooking. Volunteers are encouraged to use their skills and interests to assist carers in developing activities for the children, such as music and dance, sports, arts and crafts. All the while incorporating simple English words to develop the children's language learning abilities.  

Volunteers will contribute in a number of ways on this program and can expect to undertake the following tasks:

  • Help to feed and care for the children
  • Help to teach the children in an informal setting 
  • Attend to and interact with the children
  • Create activities and entertain the children with games

Dagelijkse activiteiten

Working around school hours during term time (mid-May through February) volunteers work in the afternoon and evening for around 4 hours a day, Monday to Friday. During the Thai summer school holidays in March and April the schedule will be adjusted to suit the children's activities.

Morning and early afternoon Free time

Whilst the children attend school volunteers can enjoy free time; to relax, stay in touch with friends and family and explore Chiang Mai. Breakfast is provided at the volunteer house. Lunch is self-catered and can be purchased from one of the many eateries in the city or prepared in the communal kitchen.

Volunteers assist with the preparation of the evening meal, sit down to eat with the children and help with clean-up afterwards. A very special opportunity.

Vrijetijdsactiviteiten

Thailand's "Rose of the North" is a breath of fresh air compared to its Southern rival. Rich in cultural diversity and natural wonders, Chiang Mai maintains a relaxed and authentically Thai atmosphere. Whether strolling the back-streets of the old quarter, visiting a temple, nodding in passing to orange clad monks going about their day or tucking in to some delicious Thai fare, visitors are sure to delight in what this city has to offer.  Not forgetting that nature is on the very doorstep; take a short ride outside the city and you are in the midst rainforests, waterfalls, rivers, hot springs and tranquil villages. There really is something for everyone!

You will be met on arrival into Chiang Mai by our local representative and taken to the Volunteer House to settle in, relax and meet with fellow volunteers and your hosts. The following day the Orientation Weekend begins, designed to give an insight into Thai culture the orientation includes learning basic Thai words and phrases, negotiating the public transport system (including getting to and from your project) and basically sets you up to get the very most out of your placement from day one. The two day orientation is a great chance to see a little of this fascinating city with the help of expert guides and in the company of other volunteers.  It will also allow you to purchase a local SIM and data package should you wish, withdraw or exchange Thai Baht and ask any last minute questions.

All rooms are air-conditioned for comfort and the house has all the amenities a volunteer requires including western-style bathrooms, hot running water, bed linen (volunteers should bring their own towels and toiletries), kitchen and laundry facilities and Wi-Fi available 24 hours a day. Easy!

Accommodation on this program includes daily breakfast at the volunteer house and dinner at the project site.  Lunch is self-catered and provides an excellent opportunity to explore the city and dine at one of the numerous eateries offering Thai or international cuisine. Volunteers are also welcome to make use of the kitchen facilities at the volunteer house.

Guesthouse
Eten & Drank
Thai dishes use an abundance of fresh ingredients, herbs and spices and are a taste sensation. Be sure to try the coconut based curries such as

 Kaeng Khiao Wan’ (Thai Green Curry) and fruit based salads such as pomelo and green mango. Delicious!
