This volunteering opportunity was a very tough but rewarding one. You are responsible for patient care, physio and also other tasks for sick, injured or disabled people. The centre is very big but has a great community feel. Lots of volunteers whilst I was there but still the opportunity to throw yourself into something new and get to know some of the patients.
Accommodation is basic but the food was great. I learnt a lot from this short volunteering placement and would have no hesitation in going back to help out again
some("I have been in Thabarwa Nature Center for the last 3 months already. When I arrived, nothing was as I expected, an experience that I couldn’t imagine. The center, the people (locals and foreigners), the activities, the daily life in that lovely community was surprising. Every day I learned about something. Prepare yourself for an unforgettable journey. I totally recommend all of the persons to come here and have this experience. Don’t hesitate and open your hearts and your minds to Myanmar people. They will do the same ;) ")
One of the most rewarding experiences I had around SE Asia... much better than I expected! I had the opp to participate in many activities: helping the monks with the 'alms', washing/caring the patients, cooking, physioterapy, teaching english, and a lot more... I learnt so much.
It's a life lesson to live among different kinds of people: poor, old, kids, disabled, blind, HIV positive, sick, international, monks etc. Volunteers also can attend Burmese classes and Monk-Guided meditation: loved it!
Very tough and yet very amazing experience... if you want to improve as Human, just go.
