They run an orphanage, school, animal care centre (mainly for stray dogs), organic farm and crafts centre designed to bring an honest income to displaced single mothers who have ended up in the area after fleeing problems across the border.
Travelfish says:

Baan Unrak has also expanded to provide some medical care, install solar panels and build wells for remote villages. Volunteers are accepted for a wide range of long-term positions, although it is possible to do short-term service if there is a specific need.

You can also contribute without volunteering simply by enjoying an excellent meal at Baan Unrak restaurant and bakery, and perhaps picking up a hand-made article of clothing from the shop. For more information, visit
