Life changing experience

BEES is a truly wonderful place to visit. You experience real love towards the elephants who have had a long and very tough life before being rescued by BEES. Not only is BEES a retirement sanctuary for these beautiful creatures but it’s also a rescue for dogs, cats and any other animals that need their help.

The volunteer program is a great mix of spending time with the elephants, be that walking with the elephants through the stunning forest and hills that surround the sanctuary, preparing their food and bathing them and spending time in a group working on tasks such as cutting grass for food, cleaning the elephant’s night enclosures or helping with odd jobs around the sanctuary. There is plenty of downtime to appreciate your surroundings, relax and get to know fellow volunteers and the BEES family.

I travelled here alone but never once felt lonely. Everyone who works here work together as one big family unit and they include you not only while your there but also after you’ve left. I have never felt more at home anywhere. Burm and Emily, Tobi, Got, Aum, Tan, Labang and Ngae Ngae are all very welcoming and couldn’t do more for you during your stay.

They do anything and everything they can to help these Elephants on a day to day basis and when one becomes sick…it’s a “all hands-on deck” attitude for as long as is required until the elephant recovers.

The fact you're able to get up close with the elephants is unbelievable and you feel a connection with them that is unmatched to anything at home. It’s safe to say I have left a piece of my heart at BEES and will be back.

My experience

I am Anna Grigoryan from Armenia. I work in Opera and Ballet National Academic Theatre Support Foundation as a project manager and coordinator. I was abroad, mostly for travelling: Belgium, the Netherlands, France and Russia. My last experience with volunteers (for the project mentioned below) and with different nationalities was organizing Alexander Arutiunian International Wind Festival. Working with people from more than 15 countries I am very well prepared for international projects and have good communication skills. I find volunteering another chance to communicate with different people throughout the world, develop your skills, do good, help other making the world a better place. I wish I can start my volunteer career with my beloved Italy.

VoluBrazil Kindergarten Teaching Program

I made my way to Rio De Janeiro, Brazil for volubrazil.com's Kindergarten Teaching program. VoluBrazil offered great value, and is one of the cheaper (yet high quality) volunteer programs. We got to work with Brazil's children and teach them how to write, dance and sing. Would do it all over again. Loved the staff. Loved the hospitality. Love the friends I made.
