Location

Thailand: Bangkok

Description

Volunteering Solutions offers an exciting opportunity for volunteers to help recent flood victims and enjoy weekend excursions in Bangkok city. The floods of late 2011 left many homes and communities devastated. With little or no support from the Thai Government, these communities are left to rebuild their homes and lives alone. Volunteering Solutions hopes to reset the balance by supporting as many of these communities as possible. The objective is to help rebuild, renovate and decorate as many poor schools, community centers, child care centers or homes as possible. Volunteers will work for four to five hours five days a week. Volunteers will then enjoy five days relaxing on the beach. On time off, volunteers can shop at the worlds biggest market at Jatujak or explore the city of Bangkok.
