Our Encourage Volunteer Holiday to Thailand is all about giving you the opportunity to sponsor a child and participate in a very special school holiday trip with your sponsor child and 12 other children from their group home in Thailand. This Volunteer Holiday gives you the best of both worlds - a relaxing holiday in superior accommodation and a life-changing volunteer experience you will never forget. You will have the opportunity to share in the joy of seeing these amazing children enjoy their first trip to the seaside and provide their guardians with a much needed rest.
Volunteers will work closely with our amazing Thailand volunteer partner, Home of the Open Heart (Chiang Rai) to give their special children a special holiday. Home of the Open Heart’s mission is to assist and enable destitute HIV affected women and children by providing education, orphan care, respite and hospice care, both in our home and in our community.
