Send the hosts/organizations a message and wait for a reply.
Volunteering in Thailand… for independent travellers!
Some of these opportunities are completely free (you receive free food and accommodation in exchange for your voluntary work – wwoof style). Others require a daily/monthly contribution fee for the food. Remember that many areas in Thailand are still developing and volunteering can’t be a ‘free’ thing.
If you want to have a “positive impact” but you only have a few weeks to do volunteering abroad, then we recommend you to choose the non-free opportunities: you will contribute to improving the local community not only with your skills but also with your money. This is better than paying for a “western hotel” or a touristic village owned by a foreign business agency.
