Volunteer in Northwest Thailand, in the Mountains

Volunteer with Burmese, Minority Migrant, Refugee Youth 

Volunteer in the remotest part of Thailand! Amaze at he mountains, rivers, the waterfalls and jungles with rare wildlife.  

The drive from Mae Sot, the border town to Myanmar, to Umpang town set in the mountains, will take you through over a 1000 curves on a narrow 150 km mountain road, an experience!

Karen and other hill tribe villages mix with refugee camps, testimony to a region of fascinating culture diversity but also the result of a long Burmese civil war.

The Karen and other minorities have been fighting the Burmese military for decades for their autonomy. Close to nature they know how to make a cheap living and very tasty food from what the jungle offers!  

Over 60 % of the people  live in poverty with poor or no education. Many are stateless!

Volunteer in the remote Thai Myanmar Mountains

Umpang is a small beautiful town on the Thai-Myanmar border offereing some of the most scenic experiences in Thailand. But it is also the least accessible part of Thailand! Therefore it was once a base for communist insurgents. Today volunteers are very welcome!

In 2016, we ran our first and very successful Mobile Mountain Camps, reaching out to young people who are unable to come to our Camps at our Center. We continue to run these Camps.

 

Help us give the campers a hope and opportunity. You as a volunteer get a fantastic and meaningful experience!

North Thailand offers the most scenic nature. Go to the largest waterfall, trek in dense jungles with rare wildlife. Go white water rafting and visit remote hill tribe villages! If not enough, cross over to Myanmar, continue exploring!

Most important, the poverty rate is the highest in Thailand. The lack of education and health care makes it almost impossible to break out of poverty!
