    I am currently planning my trip to Thailand, for next year (around November to January 2012).
    I would be really interested in volunteering for a minimum of two weeks, anywhere in Thailand. I love working with children, and i would be particularly interested in working in an orphanage or teaching English!
    I am having quite a bit of trouble finding something though, as many organizations are asking for huge fees... I have been told that these fees do not benefit the children, and that many organizations although they say are non profit, are actually not.

    I understand that I may need to pay a certain amount for different things such as accommodation or food, and that is fine!

    Finally, I am not yet 18 and will not be for the start of my trip, and quite a few volunteering website only accept over 18...

    Your help is much appreciated!
    Thank you!
