Volunteering in Thailand can be an easy extension to your gap year. With an abundance of natural beauty such as deep blue seas, luscious green jungles and locals renown to have created, ‘The land of smiles’, it can be easy forgotten that approximately 6.1 million Thai people live well below the national poverty line. The underprivileged Thai community live off the land,eating only food that is locally sourced due to its expense and housed in inexpensive huts.
Many gappers choose to participate in volunteer work in Thailand because of the sheer diversity of projects available to them. You can help build new schools for children who don’t have access to one in the area, teach English to young Buddhist monks in a monastery or care for elephants who are often abused for transport and fashion. Approximately 854,000 Thai people are infected with HIV and AIDS so volunteers with a medical interest or history in this area are always welcome to work with these patients and the wider community to teach them how to prevent it from spreading.
