Baan Unrak is more than a children's home. It is a place, where people from different parts of the world come together to make a difference.
This time we welcomed the students from an international school. The children gladly invited them into the big family of Baan Unrak.
Together they were playing sports games.
All children could participate regardless the age. Big children were playing basketball, the little ones chose football. Volunteers explained the rules and kept the game active.
Children love when volunteers join the game.
Every day they had singing, acting and dancing classes. While having fun, children could also practice the English language and get the attention they need so much.
If you ask our guests, what volunteering in Baan Unrak means, with a wide smile they will tell you:
It is playing games with the children.
... contributing to the renovation of the library.
... bringing basic necessities to the needy people of the district.
... gardening on the farm under experienced supervision - and eating own organic veggies.
... and the most important: giving the children love and attention they deserve.
Baan Unrak children are always happy to meet new friends from all corners of the Earth. They absorb the cultures and learn the beauty of diversity.
We are blessed to have so many friends, who come to the home to volunteer and who support us from far away.
