Volunteering

It’s all about sharing knowledge and skills! We offer opportunities to volunteer on long term missions (3-12 months) about natural farming & permaculture, cooking, teaching…

As an official foundation registered in Thailand, we are able to provide volunteer visa and work-permit, both documents being strictly mandatory for volunteer work in Thailand. This will ensure a smooth and enriching experience for you and the locals you will work with!

WHY VOLUNTEER?

Volnuteering and participating in real projects is probably the most enriching experience will get from travelling. It is a unique opportunity to blend in local life and live a genuine experience.

Not only will you benefit from it at a personal level, learning hips of new skills as you go, but you will also leave with the satisfaction that your journey was not only one of mindless consumption but one of sharing and giving. You will always be welcome back to see the projects you’ve participated in grow year after year and change the face of Pai for the better!

Moreover, after a few months, you will really learn how to enjoy the amazing lifestyle of Pai: get to discover the best places for live music, enjoy great local and international food, explore the amazing natural wonders of the valley, heal your mind and body through meditation, yoga, and massage…

WHY DO WE NEED VOLUNTEERS?

To create a physical space for experimentation, learning, practice and skill sharing in all areas of conscious living and sustainable farming.
Because we believe in sharing knowledge, skills and effort. We are an ambitious project with lots to do and there are never to many of us to change the world into a better place.

 

WHAT DO WE NEED HELP WITH?

  • Farm work at our permaculture farm & land rehabilitation project: all related skills.

  • Whatever the mission is, we may ask volunteers work with us at least one day at the farm which is the core of our activities.
