Join us in Chiang Rai
Chiang Rai Hill Tribes - Childcare Project
Join us for a unique and once in a lifetime experience.
Living and working in a rural hill tribe community (known as the 'Lahu') near the ancient city of Chiang Rai, Thailand.
With very little support from the government the Lahu people find themselves struggling to exist in a modern world and keep hold of their ancient and mysterious traditions in the process. With this project we hope to respect the community and develop their basic welfare needs systematically.
Our support aims to give families the ability to help support themselves. Through this childcare centre initiative, both mothers and fathers are able to work the fields and earn double the income, win-win.
Program costs: $250 application fee + $495 per week (1-4 weeks), and $200 per week after this. This includes accommodation, meals, coordination, supervision, training, airport pick up.
Living and working in such a beautifully gentle community you get to become not only a volunteer but one of the locals.
