The IVHQ Thailand program lies in the far north, and offers a respite from the busy, island hopping south. Chiang Rai flows at a slower pace of life, and provides insight into traditional culture, rural life and untouched national parks. The Outdoor work done by our Thailand program is predominantly focused on working with local hill tribe minority groups who are largely unaided by government efforts and live in the hills just outside Chiang Rai. Our Teaching project integrates volunteers into the Chiang Rai community and provides a variety of work ranging from teaching monks at a university level to teaching primary school kids and assisting with childcare work.
