Why volunteer with Openmind Projects in Thailand, Laos, cambodia or nepal

Asia is our home and so our specialty!
Read about how we set up an initiative to help poor children in Thailand: "Openmind Projects of Southeast Asia: Learning for life, nature and future." (Horizon Solutions Site, Yale University).

Our first website, www.itinisan.org, 2001, about our first projects. It was designed by a self taught Toto, the son of poor rice farmers and co-founder of Openmind Projects that was invited to Sweden in 2008 as a finalist in the Stockholm Challenge 'ICT for Development'.

Make Your volunteer money count

Why pay $60-90/€50-75 per day—the rates major European and US volunteer organizations charge—when you can pay $22/€17 per day with Openmind Projects in Thailand for a two month placement? We offer affordable and value for the money volunteer overseas fees that don't empty your pockets! And they include three extra days of extremely useful cross cultural volunteer training before you start. You have two volunteering overseas options: Volunteer Fees and what you get for your money

Why Volunteer Overseas with Openmind Projects in Thailand and Southeast Asia
