Volunteer with Burmese, Ethnic Minority and Migrant Students

Volunteer in the Thailand Myanmar border mountains.

There have been many conflicts in Myanmar and in 2021 the Burmese army deposed the democratically elected government. The violence has led to a large number of people coming to Thailand.This region has the highest poverty rate in Thailand. Many people are stateless and cannot travel to other parts of Thailand. But we can go to them!
