While GIVE’s Laos Program is the perfect extension to our Thailand trip, it also stands alone as an off-the-beaten-path adventure into the rugged mountainous territory of this fascinating country. Your Laos volunteer opportunities will involve supporting remote villages on a variety of English education, eco-friendly infrastructure, agriculture and wildlife conservation projects. You’ll also have the opportunity to meditate with monks in a monastery, summit craggy limestone peaks, explore hidden waterfalls and zipline through the jungle canopy. Come see for yourself why Laos is the best-kept secret in Southeast Asia!
Extend your trip with the Elephant Experience Add-on! This excursion takes you through Northern Thailand to trek with elephants in the jungle, play with baby elephants, visit an ethical elephant sanctuary, and support an elephant nursery and veterinary hospital. You'll give local experts the resources they need to promote Asian elephant welfare and conservation!
