Volunteer with us and you will have memories that will last a lifetime. Volunteering at the Father Ray Foundation is different to most other opportunities. Here we do not ask you for any large fees, what we want is simple. We want enthusiastic volunteers to come and get involved. This is not a 9-5 Monday to Friday job, nor is it a place where volunteers turn up for two weeks, take some photos with some children in the morning then chill out on the beach in the afternoon. Here, volunteers come and have a lasting impact on the lives of our students and children, volunteers really do make a difference! Volunteers work across all of our projects. A volunteer could be teaching English at the Technological College for People with Disabilities, then playing some English games at our School for Children with Special Needs. In the afternoon go to School for the Blind and take some children for a walk on the beach, then on Saturdays go to our Children’s Village where the kids will run a riot for two hours. Other volunteers work in our Day Care Center, helping youngsters from some of the poorest areas of Pattaya. Volunteers are provided with a private bedroom and three meals per day.
