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 (both Thai and international) and communities.
