Hi Tyana, Yes, this program is suitable for vegans along with other dietary requirements. We would recommend that you supplement the meals we offer with your own food, as there wouldn't be a huge amount of choice/variation. Jordan McFadyen IVHQ Community Manager

Thailand Outdoor Work Placement (Mirror Foundation)

Great interaction and cultural excahnge with opportuning to have a postive impact in upgrading the condition of building imprlovements in two northern Thailand hill tribe locations. Small sized work teams (4 to 6 volunteers) + 2 Mirror Foundation staff coordinators allowed for very good work flow, cooperation and transport logistics. All work is intensive manual labor, and can be a bit challenging in the hotter summer months, particularly for the more seasoned (older aged) volunteer.

How can this program be improved?
Initial arrival and orientation (provided by the Foundation staff) caused a certian level of anxiety and concern. However, after a few days most volunteers are pretty well acclimated and other other volunteers are more than helpful.
Yes, I recommend this program

Get ready to have your life changed

I only had the time off work to volunteer for a week, but it was so worthwhile. Doing the outdoor program for such a short period usually means you won't have an opportunity to do a homestay, but somehow the week I was there we not only went out for a 5 night homestay with a local hill tribe, we were there for the beginning of their traditional New Year celebrations. I had the opportunity to get to know some wonderful volunteers from around the world, dig rice fields, live without the internet or phones much less electricity for a week. It was hard, yes. But it was also one of the best weeks of my life. I can't wait to go back to Thailand.

Yes, I recommend this program
