A very warm welcome to The Mirror Foundation's 'Thailand Volunteer!' website.
If you are interested in joining one of our programmes as a volunteer, or have already registered, then this is the place to come - all the information you need is within these pages, whether you want to know what to bring, or what the programmes involve, our fees, or many other questions you may have. Registered volunteers, after logging in, can update their own information form, as well as check the progress of those who will volunteering on the same intake - the ability to communicate with those volunteers is also available, as we think it can be reassuring to talk to others also embarking on the adventure.
The Mirror Foundation runs a well-established, successful, and much loved volunteer programme, for individuals and groups who wish to work with the hilltribes of northern Thailand and other ethnic minorities in the region.
Volunteering is not for everyone, but those who put heart and soul into their time here, leave with an experience they will never forget.

Life goes on as normal...
To anyone outside Thailand, things may appear to be chaotic... but, here at Mirror and throughout the vast majority of the country, life goes on as normal.
We had 26 new individual volunteers begin this Monday, and have a total of 40 in all currently.
We also have 2 groups with us at the moment - Operation Groundswell's team has just built a traditional bamboo home for a local Akha village, for them to develop a homestay programme with our help.Horizon's group is finishing up their first of three weeks. They have been improving a road out to rice paddies, so that villagers can access their fields all year round.
