Your role as a volunteer
As a volunteer, you will help these children every day to improve their way of life. Comprehensive and individual support helps children to forget the loneliness and their stress of everyday life. We need volunteers who are enthusiastic, take initiatives, who work as a team and also work well by themselves. We are looking for people who are willing to give commitment to help others who are less fortunate than some of us.
Tasks and assignments as a volunteer at the orphanage can be:
- Computer Skills (Office & Computer Management)
- Help with homework in different subjects
- Organize activities both indoors and outdoors
- Play with and oversee the children at recess
- Arrange music classes for the children, sing songs and dance with the kids
- Games and sports activities
- Helping to feed the babies and take them on a walk around the premises (if volunteers have the experience)
- Assist with educational lessons for children between 1-3 years old (experienced volunteers is needed)

Friendly and fun-loving, exotic and tropical, cultured and historic; Thailand beams with a lustrous hue from its gaudy temples and golden beaches, to the ever-comforting Thai smile. Beyond the beaches, there is a fascinating country with a great culture and tremendous hospitality. The celestial world is a close confidant in this Buddhist nation, where religious devotion is a colourful and ubiquitous spectacle. Gleaming temples and golden Buddha’s frame both the rural and modern landscape with exuberance. With Thailand’s exotic beaches and tropical forests there is no time for being bored, with too much to explore and discover.
