Meet Our Surin Team
Hi, my name is Nam!
Hello amazing people! I can’t wait to welcome you all to Thailand and get to know you. I just know that you are going to love it here as much as I do and I can’t wait for you to experience the real Thailand. Volunteering in Thailand is amazing and so is our team! We love meeting new people and our volunteers become our friends for life. One of my most favourite parts of my job is that I get to see all the work and the impact on my community.
Hey, I’m Aow!
I love meeting new people and being part of their adventures. Surin is well known for it’s elephants and we get a lot of volunteers coming to help out which is awesome! Even though Surin isn’t as busy as Bangkok we like to think that it’s much friendlier and the food is way better. I’m here to help you live your life to the fullest! That can mean different things to different people but it usually always means having a great time.
I’m Nicky, and you are awesome!
Teaching is awesome too! Our students are our future and it’s amazing that our volunteer teachers are able to help them learn useful skills and have fun while doing so. I believe it really makes a difference not just to the children but also to the whole community. I’m not sure if most volunteers understand just how much they actually have an impact at our projects… You do and that’s cool!
I’m Tuk! Nice to meet you.
People say that you have to have a lot of energy to keep children entertained and I have to agree! Having an outgoing personality helps but it’s not essential, the children love to meet all kinds of volunteers. It’s amazing how much they can learn from different people, they seem to be able to remember all the things the volunteer teach them and it really boosts their confidence too.
What’s up? I’m Vorn!
My friends call me Vorn, but you can call me ‘the elephant whisperer’ – just joking! I do know a lot about these giant, animals though and they are a huge part of my life. Surin is well known for elephants and even hosts a huge festival each year to celebrate. Volunteers help at the elephant village in so many ways and learn a huge amount too. It’s really awesome to meet so many people who care about elephants like I do, any friend of an elephant (or Liverpool FC!) is a friend of mine.
Welcome, I’m Lek!
For first timers, travelling can be scary. It’s a big deal to fly across the world on your own or with friends and be away from everything you know and love. But everyone who has come to Thailand has been glad that they took the risk. Our country is very welcoming and friendly which makes it a great place to visit. I’m here to help take care of you, just think of me as your Thai mother!
