Challenge Snapshot

Duration: 15 Days
Location: Thailand
Total Cost: $2550



On our Thailand Health Promotion Challenge you’ll be volunteering in the local community in and around Mae Sariang, a rural area full of rolling rice fields, charming local culture and impressive temples.

how you can help

We work on a number of projects in the community to improve overall community health, which you will be involved in as a health volunteer. Your primary focus will be on raising awareness in the local community and at local schools by delivering workshops focusing on non-communicable diseases, pre- & post natal care, mental health & wellbeing, nutrition & physical activity and WASH practices (water, sanitation & hygiene).

Volunteers with relevant qualifications / area of study may even be part of community screenings and health checks in collaboration with the local hospital.

program structure

When you arrive in Thailand you’ll be met by our team at the airport. Over the next few days you’ll have a thorough induction and orientation where you’ll learn about Thai customs and culture, get your bearings around town, meet community partners and gain a better understanding of the context of the projects you’re working on.

Over two weeks, you’ll work in the community Monday - Friday with your weekend free to travel and explore. Your day will usually be structured with a morning session (approx. 3 hours) after breakfast and then a session of the same length after lunch. Your afternoons and evenings will be free for you to relax or do any required planning for the next day. On this program you’ll be primarily based in Mae Sariang, but may also spend some time in the remote hill tribe villages we work with.

On the last day, you’ll either be transported back to the airport or you can join our extension trip tour of Northern Thailand!

After volunteering you can join our optional extension trip, where you’ll spend a week touring all the sites in Northern Thailand you shouldn’t miss before you head home! You will begin by heading to Chiang Rai to visit the famous White Temple and the Monkey Temple before a Mekong river cruise to the Golden Triangle - the point where Thailand, Laos and Myanmar meet. After the markets and nightlife of Chiang Rai you'll head to Chiang Dao for some hiking, bamboo rafting and exploring waterfalls before heading to Pai for some relaxation. This whirlwind tour will see you discovering the best hidden gems of Northern Thailand for a perfect end to your volunteer trip!
