"I cannot express how meaningful and worthwhile my time as a teacher at Minmahaw School was. While being pushed to think about issues along the Thai/Burma border and models of community development, I also had this opportunity to build connections with individual people and an entire community through Minamahaw school. I continue to recommend this experience for all motivated to make a difference in the world and who have skills to share. "
"My four weeks of volunteering in Chang Dao and Pai was a fantastic learning experience. The families were welcoming; including us in their day-to-day rituals and cooking delicious Thai food for us. We helped build a nursery, participated in sustainable farming planting pineapples and Tik wood as well as built a water reservoir. We cooperated with the villagers and enjoyed working as a team with the most positive spirit! Would highly recommend this learning rich experience where your contribution is to a good cause."
