Contribute your sweat equity and enthusiasm in construction and renovation efforts to improve the standards of temple schools in Thailand.
Our program provides an opportunity for you to work creatively in renovation and construction efforts to upgrade the living standards for all the children at the temple schools. The children here are not necessarily homeless, many come from Hill Tribes or are from poor families who cannot afford to care for them.

The two temple schools where we are working in these local communities, provide housing, food and education to children who may be without any family members to care for them, as well as those whose families cannot afford to take care of them. Moreover, these locations provide a home environment for children who come from Hill Tribes, but were registered as in need of supervision, in order for them to be considered Thai citizens, and receive applicable services.
Most large temples schools in Thailand have integrated their own primary (and secondary) school onto their grounds and ours are no exception. The classrooms may seem old and a bit dirty, but the students are lovely and are happy to see our participants come each day.
The temple school offers a safe learning environment for children who may come from underdeveloped backgrounds and have limited opportunities. Therefore, the temple school concentrates on the well-being of these children and offers them assistance in developing into happy and productive young adults. Other children attending the schools may come from remote areas of Thailand, where education is virtually non-existent or inaccessible. These children are at the temple school predominantly here for educational purposes, and will return home during certain periods of the year to be with family and friends.
This program’s focus consists of construction and renovation work that improves the facade and structures of the school and elevates the living standards for all the children who attend. Additionally, you might also get the chance to teach English on a non-formal basis, to help the children in their vegetable garden (for their studies and own consumption) or to create activities and arrange workshops for hygiene, cultural exchange, environmental and other important issues or anything else that might come to mind. Our main aim, however, is always to construct and renovate the temple school grounds. So, do expect to work long hours under the sun and to get your hands dirty, with the understanding that you are helping to bring smiles to the children along the way!
This schedule can be changed and/or amended depending on weather conditions, local conditions and unforeseen circumstances.
