Baan Unrak was born 28 years ago in Sangkhla Buri, close to the Burmese border. The center welcomes 100 children, houses them, feeds them and educates them. The shelter also welcomes the mothers, who face great difficulty, and gives them the chance to live and work in the center. The lifestyle and education at the center revolve around vegan ideals.
The missions of the volunteer:
No specific training is required, diversity and complementarity of profiles can enhance the richness of the center.
Although the mission is available for any type of profile, the center is especially interested in the reception of people coming from the following formations: teaching, animation, specialized education, psychology, professions of the health (nurses, doctors). Persons with experience with the arts, sports, and culture are wanted for the center. Anyone with a taste for these activities will benefit the children.
Experience living in rural community is a plus when adapting to the new environment. Because of the age of the public that is hosted, the center does not host volunteers under 21 for short missions (less than 6 months) and under 25 for long missions (more than 6 months).
A good level of English is necessary.
