Warm Heart is a volunteer run grassroots organization that empowers rural Thai villagers. Working with the community, Warm Heart organizes projects that improve access to education, basic health services, jobs and sustainable incomes for the poorest people in the Phrao District of Chiang Mai, Thailand.
As a Warm Heart volunteer you will work with a small team of international volunteers and our Thai staff in a Thai organization and community in a very rural area of small villages.
The work can prove difficult at times due to the many linguistic and cultural barriers that cross-cut our small organization.
Warm Heart therefore requires a volunteer to have excellent interpersonal and diversity skills, patience, perseverance, flexibility and a hands-on approach.
Warm Heart welcomes people from around the world, regardless of age, gender, creed, religion, political orientation, or food preferences.
A 3 month minimum commitment of 40 hours per a week (Monday-Friday) is required, but a longer commitment is much preferred. Warm Heart will be able to give you much more responsibility as a volunteer if we know that you are not just passing through.
