Some frequently asked questions.

How much time do I need to volunteer?2022-04-21T02:28:04+00:00

We require a minimum stay of three months. This is due to the complexity of our work and the training required with our databases.

There is a 5 work-day leave per three-month period.

What if my question isn’t answered here?2022-06-08T02:58:41+00:00

If we haven’t covered your question please email us at volunteers@childsdream.org and we’ll be happy to help!

Can I volunteer remotely?2022-04-21T02:04:45+00:00

Unfortunately, we cannot accept remote volunteers at the moment. We use a lot of databases at work and allowing remote access to non-Child’s Dream issued devices could put our system at a critical security risk.

We are currently exploring different possibilities to address this challenge and to accommodate the sharp increase in demand for remote work.

Will I get a job with the organisation after volunteering?2022-06-08T01:59:02+00:00

Candidates should have no expectation of possible employment after the volunteer assignment. In the case of a job opening, we will announce publicly and will appoint the most appropriate applicant.

Do you accept volunteer teachers?2023-07-24T03:52:28+00:00

We will reopen this volunteer position at the start of 2024.

Do you ask for participation pay?2022-06-08T01:44:42+00:00

We do not ask for a participation fee. We only hire a volunteer who fits the position.

Will I get paid for my volunteer work?2022-06-08T01:57:30+00:00

Unfortunately, we do not provide board and lodging or compensation. Volunteers need to provide themselves with accommodation, transportation, food, etc.

What can I expect?2022-06-08T02:51:19+00:00

This volunteer position is a 100% office-based assignment with no interaction with children. Our office in Chiang Mai serves as our headquarters, with general administration, donor and project management, and finance works. Our projects and beneficiaries are mostly located in remote areas of the Mekong Sub-Region (Myanmar, Lao PDR, Cambodia and Thailand).

We can arrange a visit to projects within the period of your volunteer assignment, usually at the end, depending on the timing and availability of our field staff.

TESTIMONIALS

What our volunteers say

Child's Dream Kath_testimonial

Volunteering at Child’s Dream in Chiang Mai has been an amazing experience. The awesome team and great vibe made it really fun to come to work every day. I learned a lot about how the organisation runs and saw just how crucial education is in the surrounding countries. Seeing the challenges up close was eye-opening and made me realize even more how important the work Child’s Dream does is. Education truly is the key to improving these areas and helping people build better futures. If you’re looking to make a real difference and have a rewarding experience, I totally recommend joining Child’s Dream. It’s been a win-win all around.

Katharina Sophie Bracht, Volunteer Communication Support

So back to the original question, why would you be working for “nothing”? I guess the answer is I never felt like I was working for “nothing”. I am not going to say here I am sacrificing a lot in order to help the world. What I would say is I actually got a lot out of the experience, so volunteering does not have to be a purely unselfish thing to do, there can also be something in it for you. Yet at the same time I am sure that my work assisted Child’s Dream in their cause also. So I see it is a win-win situation.
