PROGRAMME OVERVIEW

Experience the very best Thailand has to offer this summer! Volunteer in beautiful Thailand working in an elephant sanctuary and supporting a hill-tribe village.

Elephant Sanctuary

In Thailand elephants are often abused as working animals, in shows or for street begging, many ending up disabled, blind or orphaned. Elephant sanctuaries offer a safe haven for these majestic animals.

By volunteering in an elephant sanctuary you will have the opportunity to care for the elephants for a whole week! This adventure will allow you to bond with these beautiful animals and to support the work of the sanctuary, to offer a better future to the elephants of Thailand.

Hill-tribe village

Although Thailand is increasingly being seen as a developed destination, it still has many economic and cultural problems. Thailand faces many social issues and marginalised groups, particularly hill-tribes, who often don’t receive the support they need.

The hill-tribes villages are located in the most remote and beautiful locations, where no one else could take you! Every day these hill-tribes perpetuate ancestral traditions, wearing hand-made clothing, living in wooden houses and growing their own food. Volunteering in these villages is the opportunity of a life-time to experience a unique adventure while supporting underprivileged communities!

This amazing adventure will leave a lasting impression on you and will make a sustainable difference for the organisations and communities you will be supporting!
