Frequently Asked Questions
What vaccines should I get? • Make sure you're up to date on your existing vaccines. All the HEP shots and Typhiod shot are recommended. The chance of getting Malaria in Thailand is very rare. Certain Malaria medication can make you sick and give you night terrors. But it's always better to be safe than sorry! Ultimately you should check with your doctor!
Can I bring supplies to donate? • You're not required to bring anything, but some of the schools are desperate for supplies. Here are some example items you can bring to donate if you want to: pencils, erasers, rulers, children's books, stickers, crayons, dry erase markers, coloring books, flash cards, ect.

It costs 50 baht (around a $1.40USD) for one day. There's coffee shops, a local karaoke bar, and we sometimes buy lanterns and let them go together at night! There are a lot fun things to do around the village and our Volunteer Coordinators will be here to help guide you and show you around!
