Volunteer Opportunities in Thailand
Discover amazing Thailand and find out for your self what lies behind the famous Thai smile. Thailand is one of the most popular destinations for travelling in Southeast Asia. Thailand has a lot of modern infrastructures especially in the capital and built up tourist areas. However, in many rural and non-tourists areas you can still find social and income inequality and serve poverty.
Thailand is a large and diverse country with so much to see including dream beaches, amazing food, and great Buddhist temples. Our volunteer work placements in Thailand are great trips for a career break, internship, summer break, gap year or volunteer vacation.
The majority of our volunteer projects in Thailand are based in the town of Trat, in Southeastern Thailand. Many travellers only stop in Trat as a transit point for Ko Chang Island and coastal Cambodia. So the town center still remains authentical and traditional.

I'm not so sure what I, myself, had expected to gain from this trip but I know I gained so many great memories and experiences I never thought possible.
It was nothing like I had expected; as cliche as it sounds my time in Thailand was just that. I have to admit this trip was my first time traveling outside of my own country so my expectations were unlimited; I can remember having doubts and insecurities about traveling to Asia but looking back now I can hardly remember the exact feelings I had.
I was very nervous about starting at Tha Rue Jang school, but the teachers were very friendly and welcomed me almost as family.
The children's English skills were very limited but over the course of my stay we found many ways to communicate without language. I was teaching computer studies, but I hope I also helped with their English and confidence speaking English. Occasionally I found things challenging or difficult to deal with.
