If you want to volunteer in Thailand my kitchen needs a good clean, probably take about 10 days, or for Cambodia there are these people.

Turtle Conservation Conservation Travel in Thailand

Do you love the beach? Do you love animals? Then why not help support this project and enjoy Thailand's Gulf coast while helping to sustain its turtle population.

The current stock of turtles in Thai waters is in desperate need of replenishment. The Rayong Turtle Conservation Project looks after baby turtles during their most vulnerable period, up to 12 months old. Once a turtle reaches 12 months it has outgrown all its natural predators. Did you know the success rate of a turtle egg hatching and reaching adulthood is just 1 in a 1000.

Wildlife Protection

Each day you will travel with your fellow volunteers to Koh Mannai island. The island is a 15 minutes boat ride. Once on the island you will provide assistance to the Thai staff. Tasks include feeding and administering medicines to the turtles living the hatchery, cleaning their tanks, helping maintain the island's facilities and acting as a guide to the tourists which arrive almost daily.

This is a fascinating placement where you will learn so much about these beautiful creatures. More so, you will be living and working with the local community, and learning so much about Thailand and its people.

Volunteer Travel


Volunteers work a 4 day week and have the long weekend to explore locally or further afield. Along with living minutes from the beach there other islands on Thailandís Gulf Coast to explore. Ko Samet is the nearest by Ko Chang is reachable. Please email if you have any questions about this placement. This project has a maximum capacity of four volunteers at any one time. This project can be fully booked as much as six months in advance. If you are serious about coming along make contact soon to save disappointment later.

^^thats actually because Pattaya has such a bad reputation so they are extremely carefull on who they allow into the orphanage, ie they aint going to allow some guy off the street to take the kids to a day at the beach or anything like that.

Volunteer Work in Thailand

Congratulations on your decision to do Volunteer work here in Thailand! I don't know where you want to go, but here in Chaiyaphum, and the surrounding area (Radius of 60 Km) there are many small villages, with older people that need and want help fixing up their living quarters. Some be living in a small lean-to, with very little cover or sides to the shack.

You did not mention your skills, but all of the Village schools would welcom the chance to have someone that speaks English in their class rooms for even a couple of weeks. As you know, when speaking a new language, it takes Practice,Practice, Practice.

I am not familiar with the National Parks system, but I am sure that they have a web site. On November 20,21,22, there is the Elephant Festival in Surin, and many Elephant farms look for Volunteers to help with the clean up and feeding.

Good Luck, (Choke dee Na) Please do not become discouraged if you don't find something. There is something out there if you really want to do this.

Yes. A friend just spent a month volunteering with this place in Klong Toey. Have one section of abandoned/orphaned HIV+ kids aged 0-6.

Quote:
Baan Nor Giank - Baan Nor Giank is a residential home for babies and infants affected by HIV/AIDS. The children here are between two and seven years old and the home is always looking for volunteers who are willing to go and play with the babies. Children with HIV/AIDS are often
ostracized, especially in a country like Thailand, so they miss out on normal social interaction. Volunteering to go and just play with the kids, give them hugs and treat them like normal children will go a long way to making them feel normal and giving them a healthy and happy life. Contact the home at 02-258-5252.
I'll be doing the same as soon as I've time.

Good question.

Unfortunately, my background is mainly office based so I am not a builder or the like so don't have any specific skills of that sense, nor am I University educated or a trained teacher.

I am however more than happy to clean, paint, shovel shit, attempt to teach English or anything that anyone found worthwhile.

Like I say me and the missus plan to travel for a year (intending to fly onto New Zealand after 5 or 6 months in SE Asia) and we're just thinking that in that time it would be good to be able to do something worthwhile as opposed to just lazing on beaches, getting drunk, taking in the sights and trying to blag the missus to have a 3-some with a good looking bar girl.

Withnall, KhonKaenDan, Ghengis and Mao - thanks for the help and infomation.

I think your time would be better spent trying to blag the missus into a 3 some to be honest, much more fun than shovelling elephants poo

Oh well maybe a bit of sunshine, the sea air and a bucket full of Samsung might change her mind!!
