Becoming a Volunteer in Thailand Teaching English in Nong Khai

If you are thinking about what to do during a Gap year or want to get out of the rat-race for a while then consider volunteering at the Fr. Ray Foundation.
Volunteering abroad is the opportunity of a lifetime, and volunteers are essential to our continuing work here in Thailand.

The work schedule varies each day with the volunteers working at all our projects; teaching English at the Vocational School for the Disabled, accompanying the blind students on a trip to the beach or teaching them English, daily walks with the elderly, spending time with the street kids at the Drop-In Center, arts and crafts at the Children’s Village to name just a few activities that the volunteers take part in.

If you have six months to spare, volunteer with us and you will have memories that will last a lifetime.

Contact the Volunteer Co-ordinator at for more information and a copy of our volunteer handbook.

We are not a volunteer agency therefore we charge no fees, we are very grateful for what the volunteers do for the children and students under our care. In return for the help volunteers give we provide accommodation and meals.
