1. To help build the tree house for long term volunteers and visitors
2. To renovate the community’s places
3. To provide activities with kids especially on Sundays at Klong Toh Lem forest school
4. Learning the local life of this fishermen’s village

Volunteers will stay at a open-air pavilion on the pier (Villagers use this place for the meeting and dock their boats sometimes). Tents, yoga mats, pillows, and mosquito nets will be provided. We suggest you bring your own sleeping bag, inflatable mattress, or another yoga mat. It’s OK if you don’t bring any of those, but you need to be sure that you will be comfortable in such condition.
There are basic toilets, showers and a kitchen at the school canteen. The villagers are willing to help you to cook as well. Local people eat rice (or noodles) 3 times a day with side dishes like curries, omelets, 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).
HOST FAMILY: 1 or 2 night(s), volunteers will be offered an opportunity to stay over at the locals’ houses. The schedule and details will be explained during the work camp.

Kok Payom is a strong Muslim fishermen community in Satun province, Southern Thailand. Over 30 families in the village gathered to protect the bio diversity of their mangrove forest for over 15 years.
As DaLaa, we support them since 2009 by sending short and long term volunteers to help. This work camp will focus on building the tree house for the long term volunteers and visitors, and to renovate the community meeting places, volunteer will be able to feel and share the spirit and energy of the community.

The volunteers should be ready to stay in a local area, and to adapt to the local conditions with only basic facilities. Very few local people are able to speak in English. Volunteers should be able to handle spontaneous working environment and constant changes in the plans. You should be prepared about the different mentality of people here. For all 2 weeks, you will be assisted by a DaLaa member/staff who will connect you with the community.
