Since 2004, the small fishing village of Ban Nam Khem has worked to rebuild after being hit by a devastating tsunami. Here, GVI’s participants collaborate with our local partners on vital social development initiatives. You’ll support an incredible community while connecting with Thai culture and the spectacular surrounds.
Phang Nga province is located on the Andaman Sea and is blessed with an abundance of natural resources, numerous national parks and stunning scenery with a wide range of attractions.
Phang Nga is made up of white sandy beaches, tropical islands, amazing limestone rock formations and a rich culture. Our project base gives volunteers the opportunity to be immersed in the local culture with chances to explore local attractions on your project downtime.
