Welcome

Welcome to the new website of the Burma Volunteer Program (BVP), a volunteer initiative that serves populations from Burma on the Thailand-Burma border.

BVP has recently adapted the way volunteers are recruited. If you are wishing to volunteer your skills and time to help build the capacity of civil society organizations from Burma, please click on the Local partners tab to view a list of BVP partner organizations in various locations in Thailand. Organizations include ethnic and women’s groups, news and political organizations, adult learning centres, schools and community based organizations (CBOs) working in key sectors such as education, health, media, human rights, and democratization.

For specific information regarding volunteer opportunities please get in touch with organizations directly using the contact information provided. Most positions include English teaching although some also include writing, editing, human rights documentation and other related tasks.
