  • Description


    We are a Catholic social center that has spent more than 20 years assisting ethnic minorities in Northern Thailand. All of the staff is local, except the director who is a missionary priest from Italy. Teenagers, mostly from the minority tribes of the Hill Tribes, are housed in the center. The center wants everyone, regardless of race or religion, to have access to education. The teenagers don't have to travel far each day to attend public school in Chaehom by living at the facility.

    In the center we opened a small coffee shop in order to offer scholarships to kids.

    We prefer working with couples, female volunteers, and experienced individuals in work-away projects because the majority of the students we host in the center are female, and as a result, we need input from previous hosts. The volunteer must be independent and able to interact with the local workers because the missionaries can be very busy.
    Our Missionary Center is more than just a place to stay; it's a tiny family that will welcome you and shares their daily lives with you. It is a life experience that will remain in your heart forever.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Our place is located in a countryside area surrounded by rice fields and mountains in Chaehom, 50 km far from Lampang. The surrounding of the center is very safe, so the volunteer can go for runs/walks outside the center, in the rice fields. We also have an indoor gym with some treadmills. Some of the workers enjoy doing aerobics in the evenings after work, they will be happy if you join them. Moreover, there are always buses going to Lampang (approx. 1 hour), and from there you can take a bus/minivan to any other city in the North (you can get to Chiang Mai in three hours from Chae Hom). From the center, you can easily reach Wat Phraphutthabat Pu Pha Daeng, which is very beautiful and the most famous touristic spot in ChaeHom. ChaeHom is a nice, little town, with local shops, a market, and a 7-11, and a Tesco Lotus.
