“Cultivating character, cultural pride and creativity.”
If you are visiting Chiang Rai and have time, energy and skills to share we would like you to think of volunteering for the Ayui Foundation. We only accept volunteers for a minimum of 2 weeks, to make it worthwhile. Some people have volunteered for up to one month, and several volunteers have returned for a second stint.
As a volunteer, we would like to hear from you about what skills you may have to offer, such as teaching the kids English, helping with maintenance work at the houses, art and crafts, sports activities, music, yoga…basically any skills you have that you can teach or share with the children.
If you are interested please read through these two documents ( PDF format ):
The first is our volunteer policy which will help describe the role of volunteers at Baan Ayui. The second document is an application form we ask people to fill out - it is an opportunity for us to get to know you a little bit and consider whether you may be a good fit as a volunteer in our organisation. Once you have read and considered the policy, please fill out the application form and email it to us. Then we can talk about when you might be traveling to Chiang Rai, how long your trip would be, and when would be a good time to volunteer.
We need people to come and spend time with the kids, see what we're doing and then go and tell people back home about our work - seeing is believing! If you just want to visit, we always appreciate donations of needles and thread, school supplies, school socks, or food items.
