No-fee volunteering in Thailand

No-fee volunteering in Thailand


I'm looking for a worthwhile volunteer opportunity in Thailand. I'm surprised to find many organizations offering positions require the candidate to pay a fee. Are there any specific organizations that offer volunteering on a no-fee basis.

Work/support in exchange for food and/or shelter.

Please advise,

Volunteering as what? What is this unpaid work you want to do for the Thais?

Be aware that if you are going to work, even as an unpaid volunteer you, at least in theory require a Work Permit.

Whilst it is unlikely that anyone would worry about it, if you had any problems it could become a factor.

A young woman that my son graduated with is currently doing missionary work in Thailand. I think there are some fees involved, but she is being sponsored and is not paying them herself. Not sure if that would work for you and sorry, but I don't know any other details.
