Short Term

ภาษาไทย

Short Term Workcamps last usually about 2 weeks. The projects can be as various as teaching English, environmental activities, construction work and art & music camps. These camps are organised together with local organisations, local government, schools and dedicated individuals in order to meet local’s needs and assure exchange between volunteers and local groups. Our Thai volunteers are more than welcome in these camps as well.
