The two local orphanages provide housing, food and education for orphaned children as well as those whose families cannot afford to take care of them. Moreover, they provide a home environment for children who come from hill tribes, but were registered as orphans in order for them to be considered Thai citizens.

Most large orphanages in Thailand have integrated their own primary (and secondary) school onto their grounds and ours is no exception. The classrooms may seem old and a bit dirty, but the students are lovely and are happy to see our participants come each day.

The program consists of construction and renovation work that shall improve the school and living standards for all the children. Additionally, you might also get the chance to teach English on a non-formal basis, to help the children in their vegetable garden (for their studies and own consumption) or to create activities and arrange workshops for hygiene, cultural exchange, environmental and other important issues or anything else that might come to mind. Our main aim, however, is always to construct and renovate the orphanage grounds, so do expect to work long hours under the sun and get your hands dirty!

Aims & Objectives

The orphanage offers a safe environment for children coming from underdeveloped backgrounds. Therefore, the orphanage concentrates on the well-being of these children and offers them assistance in developing into young adults. Other children come from remote areas of Thailand, where education is non-existent. These children are at the orphanage predominantly for educational purposes, and will return home during certain periods of the year.

The aim of the program, therefore, is to maximize and continue to improve the facilities at the orphanage and to help bring smiles to the children along the way!

Schedule
Monday to Friday

After breakfast, you will be off to the orphanage. You will then be organized into groups and be briefed on your tasks by our coordinator and the school’s staff. Expect to do heavy work at the orphanage for 4-5 hours per day with a lunch break in between. Lunch is always at a nearby roadside restaurant and stops at the local town can be made on the way back to the accommodation.

During the school holidays (Mid March till May), most children will not be at the orphanage but construction efforts will continue.
