Openmind Projects offers affordable and value for the money volunteering work abroad. Why pay CA$60-90 per day—the rates many travel and volunteer organizations charge—when you can spend only CA$22 per day with Openmind Projects in Thailand for a two month period? Your contribution goes to support our local projects and you only!

Our Volunteer with Support option. A Volunteer Bargain


Our fee of CA$22 is about 680 Thai baht. On your own a room in a guesthouse in Thailand would cost you 400-700 baht per day and wouldn't include a volunteer placement/project, meals, volunteer support, handbooks or training!

With us your entire fee goes towards supporting our grassroots projects in Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Nepal as well as our international volunteers, not to any administration, office, promotion or other costs overseas.
