Who is willing to volunteer to organize these activities will be rewarded by kids’ smiles and pure energy and by sharing deeply the daily life of this community, even if of course English language is still a challenge for most of them.

During those 2 weeks, we want to organize 3 children camps at DaLaa Voluntary Service Community in Kok Riang village. Each camp would take 3 days and involved different Thai children from 7 to 13 years old. We will keep 1 or 2 days in between to relax, evaluate and prepare the next one. The activities and camp daily life organized by volunteers should be strongly linked with our community values, authenticity, responsibility and inclusion, and allow children to be in a harmonious and safe environment. The English language is poorly understood by the children so we’ll have to find possibilities to go over this challenge with the help of our coordinator and Thai volunteers. HISTORY and REASONS OF THE PROJECT DaLaa Voluntary Service Community (VSC) is the first door for outsiders to get to know DaLaa organization. The main mission of DaLaa is to coordinate the hosting of volunteers in active communities working for social growth and environmental preservation, mainly in South Thailand, but our drive is also in the action.
