About Thailand Program
Volunteering in Thailand – Millions of tourists visit Thailand every year for leisure, cultural experiences and for enjoying its nature.
Our volunteering programs offer interested people the chance to volunteer in Thailand where their impact and contribution can be felt by the people. The Thai community dwellers are always looking forward to volunteers and open their institutions, hearts and lives to them and this eventually leads to their development, maturity and growth. The Idex programs in Thailand continue to follow our ethos of “Travel that Matters” as it provides an opportunity for travellers to have a safe and enjoyable experience that makes them more developed than they were before the start of the trip, thus fulfilling the goal of mutual benefits of this program.
Participants in our programs can explore various volunteering opportunities in Thailand that cover women, children and the different aspects of community life. Domestic violence is one of the major challenges facing women in Thailand, despite various government interventions. This problem is further aggravated by the social belief of male dominance and male chauvinistic tendency. This has attracted the attention of Thailand’s Mahidol University, which birthed the National Institute for Child and Family Development as a means to solve this problem. So far, about 8000 women facing this challenge and other related ones have been rescued and housed to live a happier life.
Another area that you can volunteer in Thailand is among the children. The lack of equal right to education has left a gap among the children especially the female children, resulting in adolescent pregnancy, thus increasing the number of street children. These street children face violence and belong to the most vulnerable set of people in the community.
In Thai, some children are sold into slavery while others are abused physically, emotionally and sexually, affecting the growth and development of the entire community. In spite of the anti-trafficking and child protection acts, children face these problems, leaving them with lifetime scars and forcing them to struggle for a meaningful future as well as to seek for a way to livelihood.
Another social menace in Thailand is the problem faced by the ageing population. They are not able to care for and support themselves both financially and physically, and hence, they need assistance with basic duties. You can render assistance to all these categories of people by volunteering in Thailand through our Idex programs.
