Sample Volunteer & Mixed Activity Programme







Bai See Traditional Welcome Ceremony: A traditional ceremony during which senior representatives of the village welcome you, and offer a Buddhist prayer for your safety and well being whilst with them and beyond, signified by a white thread tied around your wrist.

Farm Skills Challenge: In this day and age of pre-packaged, plastic wrapped foods and fast food deliveries we lose touch with exactly what is involved in getting  rice (and everything else) from the paddy (or plot) to the plate. This hands-on challenge puts it all into context.

Traditional Charcoal Cooked Dinner: In modern Thai cooking most of the dishes are stir-fried in order that they may be served within minutes of being ordered. There are however a number of fantastic dishes that need to be 'slow cooked' and taste better if done in a charcoal oven, many of which are custom designed for particular tasks. The dinner is part prepared by our staff, and part by the guests.

Traditional Thai Meals: Throughout the programme you are served traditional Thai meals in clean local restaurants selected for their authenticity, quality, hygiene and service.

Community Service ProgrammesConducted incollaboration with our non-profit partner the Volunteers Without Borders Foundation, there are a range of CS & CSR Projects. Examples: Intelligent Playgrounds, Mushroom Houses, Green Houses - all in cured bamboo and in knock down format, are easily erected by small unskilled groups.

Saturday School ProgrammeGiven the disparity in teaching resources across the local schools system, and our interest in assisting interested students from all schools in the area with English language training, we have opted to establish our own Saturday school and develop lesson plans to cover the requirements in the Thai school curriculum.

Special Interest TravelWe provide access to short workshops/hand on experiences that showcase the local art & crafts industry. They offer the unique and rewarding experience that special interest travelers seek but struggle to find.

Night Bazaar ShoppingIs Chiang Mai's popular showcase for the arts, crafts, souvenir and other items (clothing, jewelry etc.), favoured by visiting tourists.
