Volunteer in Thailand: An Introduction to Bangkok

The Land of Smiles

Appreciate this stunning country while you engage with local individuals as a volunteer in Thailand. From pristine beaches and remote mountain communities, to floating markets and bustling cities, Thailand will take your breath away. As a CCS Thailand volunteer in Bangkok, you'll be able to experience the fascinating juxtaposition of centuries old Buddhist tradition and a Southeast Asian metropolis.

...Thailand will take your breath away...

Over the years, many young Thai people have relocated to Bangkok in search of economic opportunity. This migration, however, has resulted in overcrowding in and around Bangkok, and has also put a serious strain on social resources. As a volunteer in Bangkok, you'll work side by side with local people to address these issues. For volunteers interested in child development, Thailand is of particular interest. Never having been colonized, the education system is quite unique, and will really benefit from your support.

Volunteer in Thailand to work to improve education for children, improve health and the sense of dignity among the elderly, or improve the quality of care for people with disabilities. No matter what you are passionate about, our Thailand volunteer program offers you an opportunity to apply your passion and make a lasting impact in a local community.

As a CCS volunteer, you'll have a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in a community that's far from home in a way that is genuine, educational, and comfortable.

PIMSUDA TIANDUM
What would we do without Pimsuda? A Bangkok native, Pimsuda served as the Associate Regional Director of Family Planning International Assistance, an international arm of Planned Parenthood, and the Associate Director of Programming of the U.S. Peace Corps in Thailand before joining the CCS family as the Director of our Thailand program when it began in 2002. Pimsuda earned her B.S. in nursing and master’s in community and industrial guidance and counseling stateside in Kentucky. With a masters degree under her belt, she returned to Bangkok to work for the Population and Community Development Association, the largest family planning, health, and development non-profit organization in Thailand. She is passionate about many things, from reproductive health issues to Shakespeare, to spending quality time with her mother, husband, two sons, and young granddaughter. Pimsuda likes to joke that she loves citrus fruits so much because she needs the sourness to balance out her naturally sweet disposition – we couldn’t agree more!
