Hello all,

My fiance and I are planning to travel to SE and to explore the region as a backpacker for aslong as we can (hoping 6 mo - 1 year). We'd like to start our adventures by volunteering somewhere in Thailand/Vietnam/Laos/Cambodia. Does anyone have suggestions of a group or orginization that is honest, hardworking and needs some help?

Any information would help!

Thanks :)

I have friends in Phnom Penh that help orphans and poor families with: shelter, food, medical care, schooling etc. No fees involved. If interested, send me a PM.

the elephant nature park in chiang mai was one of the best experiences of my life. you do have to pay $370 a week though, covers lodging and food. the thai elephant is endangered and they are amazing creatures. they also have a new park in surin, closer to bangkok. if you can manage the cost, it is a must do!! good luck

There is no fee teaching English starting from November one hour away from Bangkok.
It's a good location since it's close to Hua Hin and other tourist places.
You should get free accommodation and more in exchange for your input!
send a message and I'll send you more info!
