Time spent at IVCA “volunteer Thailand” be very rich and rewarding, but can also be very demanding and challenging. It is very likely that it will be different from anything you have experienced before. Your contribution will be deeply appreciated. All of us in the community recognize the enormous importance of our short-term, and long term volunteers, who invariably bring energy, enthusiasm, and questions that are most beneficial for the future of IVCA. Since we strive for cultural diversity among st the volunteers in our work camps it is very important to keep an open mind and be accepting of other people’s traditions and cultures. Maintaining an open line of communication is necessary for a smoothly operating work camp, and with a little effort on everyone’s part a IVCA will be one that will make a different your life.
