While in Thailand, you will have the opportunity to be a tangible part of making a difference in the lives of children that need a future that is free of the pain that many of them have experienced. We will work with a children's home in Chiang Saen called Buddies Along the Roadside. Most of the children who reside there have been rescued out of very exploitative situations. Our team will be working daily at their compound doing home improvements, organizing summer camp activities, and experiencing field trips with the children. We will work alongside their staff and learn from them as they teach us about their culture and how they care for vulnerable people. We will also have the opportunity to spend time at their street drop-in center at the Myanmar border.
Live Different has been supporting and working with Buddies Along the Roadside since 2007. Together we have helped to construct homes, an office and clinic space, worked on their water treatment center, improved their garden space, and helped to build a safe playground for the children.
