Description

If you would like to help single mothers in crisis, Cultural Canvas Thailand (CCT) places volunteers at Wildflower Home Foundation. This is a home for single mothers who do not have the means to take care of their kids. The women are all from hill tribe groups and many are in their early teens. The home offers temporary safe shelter to mothers and their children from crisis situations such as pregnancy out of wedlock, domestic abuse and severe poverty. They also provide mothers with educational and emotional support, which will help to move them from crisis and poverty to steady jobs or continuing education. Wildflower Home is a in a rural setting that is similar to the setting from which the woman come. They are taught to live more closely with nature through agricultural sustainability, organic methods or gardening and permaculture design.

Volunteers have the opportunity to teach English, oversee childcare, assist in gardening and building projects, carpentry, etc.

Detailed Location Information
In Thai, Chiang Mai means "new city, but in this ancient kingdom new is a relative term. Founded by Lanna settlers in the 13th century, Chiang Mai was once the capital of northern kingdom of Lanna (meaning one-million rice fields). Situated between picturesque mountains and the Ping River, this ancient capital was carefully planned with a moat and protective walls whose remnants mark the heart of the city today. Dotted around the city you will notice many beautiful Buddhist temples or ?wats? dating back as far as the 14th century, an eye-catching testament to Chiang Mai?s rich Lanna background.
