Our 3 missions
To bridge knowledge divides between rich and poor. Help the underprivileged to better learning opportunities with the help of modern information technology and international volunteers.
To save nature. To contribute to the fight against increasing threats to our environment, nature and animals.
To offer international volunteers unique opportunities to help bridge knowledge divides and save nature while growing as persons in our grass roots education and eco projects. Our programs, to volunteer in Thailand, Laos, Cambodia and Nepal are designed to contribute to the motivation, creativity, inter-personal and cross-cultural skills of the international volunteer overseas.
We offer amazing and challenging opportunities for overseas volunteers to contribute, in a meaningful way, to a better future of local underprivileged people and to a future too, for threatened nature and animal species.
