Questions & Answers

For my particular program it was a mix! In Bangkok, meals weren't provided (BUT VERY CHEAP); in the elephant camp all of our meals were provided and they were delicious! During our second volunteer project, breakfast and lunch were provided, and on the island no meals were provided.
Hi! All the places I stayed were included in the price. I believe the total amount I paid Volunteering Solutions was around $1000 (US), and another $1000 for a round-trip flight. Food is so cheap in Thailand. Someone could budget $10-$15 per week for food and be totally fine. Street food is around $2. I remember someone telling me I could buy a new outfit, a hot meal, and taxi cab ride all for $20...

Better Balance of Work and Fun

I would have actually preferred to be given more volunteering hours as our working time seem quite minimal and not as impactful as I thought it would be. For instance, in the Surin Childcare Centre, it didn't seem like they needed much help at all as all we did was spending time playing with the children. We didn't organise games for them, but only watch the full-time caretakers conducting their daily activities. Tha Thum was a more meaningful endeavour where we helped plant trees and pick out weeds outside their temple, but we were relieved off our duties much earlier than I personally anticipated, having not completely clearing the weed area. Nevertheless, the leisure part of the program is commendable, particularly the Khao Yai National Park.

On another note, there has been much confusion about the program's start & end date due to the discrepant details seen on the website and our personal volunteer page. More than just a few of us have submitted enquiries about this and urged for the quick amendment on the websites to prevent further confusion, but no action was taken. Many of us also asked when we are meant to fly back upon the end of the program, being unsure of the official ending time of the program. I was personally informed to only leave a day after the aforementioned final day, but was then told that I would have to bear additional cost for staying another day.

The most amazing three weeks!

Summer in Thailand was truly one of the most rewarding experiences I've had. You get to work with elephants and with children, and really get to be immersed in the Thai culture. I highly recommend it!
