1- To preserve the mangrove forest and the environment
2- To support and be a part of Kok Payom learning community (to preserve their community values and life style)
3- To build a good relationship between volunteers and local people
4- To learn about local cultures and wisdom

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 teachers and 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 mangrove planting and helping the team to organize a mini concert for fund raising to support mangrove forest conservation group

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.
The villagers of Kok Payom are Muslim, so there must be no pork nor alcohol products brought to the village.
