Overview

The Childcare Volunteer Program in Thailand, Chiang Mai is dedicated to the welfare and development of the children in need in the city. Volunteers joining this project will be placed and working at children’s home placements. The children at these childcare centers fall in the age group of 4 to 16 years and are in dire need of love, affection, and care. Volunteering for children in Thailand at these children’s homes is a challenging and satisfying experience at the same time. Many of the children are of ethnic hill tribe descent, which is different than Thai ethnicity. The contribution of volunteers is helpful at two levels. Firstly, they can help with daily tasks at the center which would, in turn, help the local staff. Secondly, they can spend time with the children and give them much-needed love and attention, which they are deprived of. Simply spending time with the girls at the center also helps them to a great extent.

The project involves 5 days of work in a week for around 4-5 hrs. This can also vary on a day to day basis. Majority of the volunteers working in this project stay at volunteer house accommodation and work at the children's home. At one of the project placements, volunteers stay within the childcare center itself in the separate volunteer accommodation.
