KARE – Thailand

Project KARE – Thailand


Project KARE is an all-volunteer non-profit organization and it takes many caring and capable hands to make it possible for volunteer teachers to have the opportunity to teach on the Thai/Burma border. Travel to the refugee camps is no longer permitted for foreigners. If this policy changes, we would be delighted to coordinate volunteer teachers to lead classes in a refugee camp for Karen people in Thailand.

We owe endless gratitude to our KARE friends in Thailand for assisting about 100 volunteer English teachers over four years.

Thailand – Chiang Mai

Now living in Canada, Van was our queen of volunteer happiness. If you were a volunteer teacher traveling through Chiang Mai and you wanted some local help with shopping for school supplies, Van was magic at shopping! If you just wanted to have a local contact, someone to help you navigate Chiang Mai … Van loved to help!

Thailand – Mae Sariang

Hsa Pu was our coordinator of camp permits and transportation to Mae Ra Moe. Once you got to Mae Sariang, you were half way from Chiang Mai to Mae Ra Moe refugee camp. If/when travel to the refugee camps is allowed by the Thai government, she will be your point of contact for making these critical steps happen.
