My experience on the outdoor volunteer program with The Mirror Foundation has been the most amazing experience. I didn't know what to really expect when taking this challenge on, but I am sure glad I did. Yes the living and food experience is much different than what I am used to living in America but was easy to get used to and actually very nice to live as the Thai people do.

The friendships and relationships with the other volunteers and Thai people has exceeded my expectations and has been the highlight to my stay. I will remember these moments and experience forever. The Mirror Foundation does a lot to keep the volunteers happy and comfortable to the best they can and the food is always ready to be eaten. I want to say thank you to all the staff who prepares the food each and everyday .Yes it is a lot of the same thing (rice mostly) for breakfast , lunch, and dinner however you do get used to it and find ways to enjoy it every time.

You do get to go out on the weekends and eat what ever food you want . As well as have fun with your fellow volunteers, this has been another highlight of my experience here. The beauty of the compound and animals running free was a great thing to see, yes there are bugs, so expect that when coming here, but it is not so bad considering the beautiful landscapes.

The outdoor program has really been fulfilling and gratifying. I was a part of really making a difference. We built houses, worked with and made many things from bamboo that I was not aware you could do, we built roads and walls from our own mixing of cement, and plowed fields for new rice to grow . I really appreciate the work ethic of the Thai people . The projects I was apart of gave me inspiration to do more in my life and gave me knowledge of things I didn't know how to do.

The outdoor leaders Doug and P Ao have been amazing in teaching us and working side by side with us to give us the best experience possible, thank you to both of them for there amazing leadership. Nikki has also been more than amazing in making me feel welcome and helping guidance for all the volunteers, she is very nice to me and have made a friendship with her.

What to expect when coming here; in short, memories, fun, laughter, experiences unlike anything, beautiful landscapes, amazing people and culture, and a feeling of gratitude that you don't usually get . All in all I would definitely recommend that you volunteer with The Mirror Foundation, it has made my life better in so many ways and I really looking forward to volunteering again with them . Thank you for an amazing time and wonderful experiences.
