Questions & Answers

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

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
