Child Care Volunteer Program

Child Care Volunteering

Daily caring for and help with Basic English of children from underprivileged communities is one of the most satisfying and popular of volunteering activities. Overall purpose of these projects is to provide a higher standard of care to infant’s children in different public and privately-run facilities by providing hands-on support on a day to day basis.

A Personal Adventure that Changes Lives

The childcare project focuses mainly on the personal development and growth of a child, through a number of planned and scheduled day-to-day activities. With the help of this project, volunteers work to provide better care to disadvantaged children. The country is still struggling to provide better and healthy living to disadvantaged children. These children are vulnerable to a number of issues such as illiteracy and malnutrition and they expect a desolate future. Volunteers in the childcare project visit day-care centres and work with children with regard to various issues for healthy living. Through various interactive activities, a learning environment is created to ensure proper growth of children. In this program, care and support activities are planned and performed for children, along with awareness activities related to health and hygiene issues.

A Trip Unlike Any Other

Waking up in the foothills of the Himalayas is a unique experience that you will carry with you forever. Our programme is packed with activities and sights that will amaze your family and friends. You will meet volunteers from all over the world – young women and men just like you who want to make a difference, broaden their horizons, and live an amazing adventure in a part of the world that not many will ever get to experience. The bonds you create will last you a lifetime.

The Children of Thailand Need Your Help

Thailand people confront daily adversities that stunt their potential and limit their opportunities. Illiteracy and malnutrition are compounded by poverty, and it is the children who carry the legacies of underdevelopment into adulthood. Their prospects are limited by their social and economic realities, yet despite it all, they have a spirit that is as pure and joyous as you could ever hope to encounter. We are proud to say that the children of Nepal have benefited greatly from the thousands of IDEX volunteers, people like you, who have generously given their time, insight and kindness for this project.

We invite you to be a part of the solution that drives the betterment of the next generation. You will be able to inspire these children and those who work with them on a daily basis and help them reach greater heights. When you inspire others, you will be inspired. The time you spend can be marked in days or weeks but, the lasting positive impact that YOU can have on a community is beyond measure.

Location - Thailand

Chiang Mai is one of the few places in Thailand where it is possible to experience both historical and modern Thai culture coexisting side by side: the city features centuries-old pagodas and temples as well as modern convenience stores and boutique hotels. Chiang Mai literally means “new city” and has retained the name despite celebrating its 700th anniversary in 1996.

For many years, travellers have thought of Chiang Mai simply as the base from which they could plan trekking and rafting trips to hill tribe villages and also visits to other provinces. However, once there, they will be taken by surprise due to the fact that there are so many things to discover other than its beautiful and historic temples. Intriguing diversity among ethnic tribes, elephant camps, cooking and massage schools, outdoor activities, a variety of handicraft workshops, various cultural performances, and breathtaking sceneries make Chiang Mai one of Asia’s most attractive tourist destinations.

Thailand is every person’s dream destination as it is a land filled with serene beaches, busy city life, electrifying night life, Buddhist monasteries and temples as well as plenty of exciting activities. From students planning a vacation to families planning a chilling holiday, most people opt for Thailand as their travel destination. The spirit of this archipelago is so contagious and tempting that whoever reads or hears about it will want to visit it.

Apart from its dazzling nightlife and wonderful places of attraction, Thailand is also well known for its bizarre yet excellent street food varieties. Thailand, a lively city with livelier people is sure to give the tourist fun, adventure, companionship, rejuvenation and most significantly, fulfilment! Besides these, Thailand is also popular for club hopping and plenty of shopping.

Thailand, the ‘Land of Smiles’ is a paradise for shoppers as it has many kinds of weekend bazaars, fancy malls, floating bazaars and night markets selling a variety of Thai products. The products famous here include Thai sauces and spices, pottery and ceramics, Thai silk , Thai snacks and food, wickerwork, antiques and so on!
