About volunteering with Burma, Karen migrants and ethnic minorities
Volunteer with Burmese, Karen in the mountains
Young migrants lack education. Hundreds of thousands of refugees, migrants and displaced people live along the border between Myanmar (Burma) and Thailand. They face a bleak future without education!
Volunteers are welcome to schools and very simple so called learning centers.
Openmind Projects invites young migrants as trainees at our Training Center in Thailand and also to join our April and October camps there.
But being stateless, without id papers many are not allowed to travel to us, so this fall, 2016, we pioneered so-called mobile camps in the Border Mountains. You are welcome to join there too!
These projects suit volunteers up for a challenge, willing to rough it a bit, go the extra length to help those in need. If you like your own space, more comfort, we can help you find a guesthouse in beautiful Umpang town!
Nature and scenery is stunning with the largest protected forest in Southeast Asia, with amazing but unfortunately threatened wildlife, such as tigers, Asian bisons, elephants, tapirs. Volunteers have a chance to visit including an adventurous trip to Southeast Asia’s largest waterfall, deep set in the jungle.
