volunteer area information
Kui Buri National Park located in Amphur Pranburi, Samroiyod and Muang, Prachuap Kiri Khan province. It is the headwater, which consists of valuable natural resources and beautiful scenery. The park has 969 square kilometers, its steep terrain of Tanao Si moutain range runs from north to south, at the Thai-Burmese border. Kui Buri National Park is located next to one of the largest national parks of the country, Kaeng Krachan. Both parks are rich in flora and fauna and offer habitat to animals like the tiger, elephant, gaur, deer, porcupine, monkey, wild boar and an incredible number of bird species. Kui Buri is most famous for its wild elephant watching. Unfortunately, there is still a lot of deforestation around the park, which forces the elephants to move from the primary forest to secondary forest and plantation areas for feeding. The owners of the fruit plantations areas have tried many ways to chase away wild elephants but some have even been poisoned or killed. Fortunately, these days the local people have cooperated with the park rangers in monitoring the wild elephants and to take them back to the forest without harming them. In this way, the local people can benefit from tourism and the elephants have a chance to survive in this park. The reforestation has kindly been supported by the present king since began the reforest scheme due to its abundant valuable ecosystem.

what we do
Thai students have a notable passion for learning English. With the surrounding and growing economy, the trend of learning English is developing everyday. In this project, volunteers will teach English to the students of primary school for five days a week - Monday to Friday. Additionally, English-teaching volunteers will also encourage the students to take part in extra curricular activities as well as possibly organizing sports or games. The primary school in Thailand is struggling to meet the growing demand of English education. In Thailand , the primary schools provide education to the children between the ages of 3-12 years, grades kindergarten 1-6. The class sizes range from 15-20 students.
The project also helps finding the sustainable food resources to wild elephants that we wish them to stay happily at their old home after deforestation. We give our volunteers the opportunity to expose dedicated volunteers, enthusiasm to the work offers a unique chance to make a personal difference and a real contribution to conservation in Kuiburi to try to solve the conflict between wild elephants and villagers .
How Its Helps
Thai Kuiburi villagers own, operate and manage their own tourism enterprises for the benefit of their own communities. An encouraging sign is that in the last ten years, since the royal project begun, the villagers have demonstrated their ability to sustain the initiatives by themselves. Villagers earn income through providing guiding services, accommodation, boat transport, food and have established village revolving funds from voluteers and visitors revenue. The revolving funds are managed by committees and provide low interest loans to community members who need assistance to pay school fees, send their children to hospital in emergencies, or develop their farms. Each visitor/volunteer is not required to pay a national park entry fee. An additional fee is collected from visitors/volunteers to contribute to an elephant conservation fund that compensates farmers who suffer elephant damage to their crops. The fund also helps maintain the elephant home and pays a monthly wage to the men and women of the village. As a result of the elephant conservation and royal project, Baan Kuiburi village has developed a number of community rules for conserving the forests, trekking sites and elephant habitat in the area.
