We have a few bamboo huts and tents, depending of the number of people. You should bring your own sleeping bag and if possible a small mattress. We will provide the mosquito nets. There are 2 showers and toilets in a simple Asian style. Please do not expect intensive comfort during your time at the project.We will cook rice (or noodles) 2 or 3 times a day with side dishes like curries, omelettes, local leaves and vegetables. Volunteers will be welcome to cook their own food using the ingredients available there. (No oven, only a gas and woks or pans).
• There may have a lot of rain at this time of the year. • Laundry: expect to hand-wash your clothes • Water supply and electricity: available • Internet/phone access: There is WIFI at the main house. • Hat Yai, the main city of South Thailand is 30 minutes’ drive from the place. • Clothes worn in the village: You will be living in an area with elderly people and children around so it is appropriate that you dress modestly. You will learn more about Thai culture at the introduction day so please don’t worry too much.
Since the creation of the association in October 2004, we organize each year a celebration. Year 2015, we had moved our office from Hat Yai to a local village known as Baan Kok Riang in order to get away from bustling city to live a simple life in the countryside. Happily this year again, the flower still blooms, we go over another step that we turn 14 since our foundation. For more information of Baan Kok Riang village, it is located in Klong Hoi Khong district of Songkhla province, Southern Thailand. The approximate number of villagers settling in this village is about 1,200 people or 140 families. Most of the villagers own fruit orchard and rubber plantation, and nearly all of them are Buddhists. There are a few Buddhist temples in the area and lots of rubber plantation lined up on the sides of the road.
Volunteers should be able to handle spontaneous working environment. You should also be prepared not to have much privacy. To have responsibility for you, the people around and full involvement in community matters is a must.
