    What a fabulous way of being able to help make a positive impact on local communities and still enjoy an adventure in rural Thailand. GIVE does a great job of culturally immersing and educating its volunteers so that we can appreciate and enjoy the beautiful culture, people and communities as well as being global citizens. GIVE has a great relationship with the locals such that our activities/work truly help their communities. The adventures were awesome--hiking to beautiful viewpoints, spelunking in a cave, working in rice paddies, trekking thru the jungle to find/feed/bathe/interact with elephants, wild rides through the jungle on the back of a pickup, spectacular raft rides down river to name some. Being in my mid-fifties, I am not the typical age for a volunteer but I highly recommend this awesome experience to anyone with a spirit for adventure, volunteering, and getting to interact with the beautiful people of The Land of a Thousand Smiles.

    By far the most amazing experience I've ever had in my entire life. There's nothing more satisfying than helping out such an amazing community and getting to do super fun adventures in the process. There is absolutely nothing bad I could say about this trip, and definitely reccomend it to every person with an itch for this kind of thing!

    I absolutely loved my trip! I'm 100% positive it made a bigger impact on my life than the impact we worked to make on those of the villages. I left feeling so inspired.

    Sometimes in your life, there are moments that change the path you have carefully laid out for yourself. For me, this trip was one of them. Immersing myself in Thai culture and meeting so many incredible people from all over the country and globe truly changed the way I see the world today. The incredible mountain views, facing fears and challenges as a GIVE family, and the resilience and connection shown by the volunteers, staff, students, and locals have inspired an awareness and compassion for others and for the planet that I have continued back home. I am so thankful to have had this experience and to be able to continue serving others with the tools and leadership skills it has provided me. Thank you GIVE Thailand for being the roots of change in my own life. Maybe I have changed my mind about the plans I had made for the course of my life, but you know what, sabai sabai.

    I have never been thrown more out of my comfort zone then with GIVE. However, GIVE truly allows the person to make that step out, you are nudged but never pushed out. I, however, wanted to go all in and truly be culturally immersed into Thai culture. If it wasn't for GIVE I don't believe I would have been able to truly understand and learn the impact of eco-tourism in the world. To be able to interact with uniquely diverse local villagers and guides for two weeks was remarkable. With GIVE you understand and learn from the locals themselves whether it be about basket weaving, cooking, farming, elephant tourism, etc. You are able to partake in their daily life for only a small amount of time but the experience lives on forever. I learned so much working alongside the Thai people and will be forever grateful to GIVE for the incredibly immersive adventure in northern Thailand.

    although many of the accommodations and food was quite rugged, it was all part of an extremely immersive and meaningful experience. Although it is not for every tourist, it is an invaluable experience and for those more adventurous i highly recommend it.

During this trip, you get to experience and meet people you would never have the opportunity to otherwise. There is such a wide variety of things you do, from the fun adventures of elephant trekking and bungee jumping to making genuine connections with locals while they show you their culture to genuine fellow volunteers to working in the farm and school and discussions that really matter. This trip has definitely opened my eyes and allowed me to become more passionate about the things I want to do and was such a fun adventure.
