Want to Volunteer?

Please note - As from September 2012 until further notice we will not be recruiting new volunteers for our operations in Thailand. Young people from Burma living in Thailand need your help to build skills, build community and build a future.The young people we work with are full of ideas for smart solutions which will help them and their communities. But they need outside help to make their vision a reality. Many of the students have experienced a life of instability, ordeals which have forced them to leave their homeland, and now face a life of disadvantage as displaced people who are denied basic rights. Through education and training, they aim to make the most of the opportunities that are available to them, and help to play a positive role within the community of people from Burma living in Thailand. The Build Project Australia is a grassroots non-profit run entirely by volunteers. We are independent and not affiliated with any religious or ethnic group. By joining us you can help these resilient and determined young people achieve a future that would otherwise be impossible. Volunteer in Thailand
