"We are bringing volunteering away from “voluntourism” and back to the root: bringing those who can do more into our organization to contribute with no other payment than the joy of helping out.

Not because volunteers are worthless, but because you are priceless."

Living in Aay’s Village is relaxing and focused on the simple living. We offer a comfortable environment where you shape your own day. Your timetable depends on the work you do. Weekdays before lunch is usually slow, and evening very hectic. Weekends are free to enjoy as you like and we often go on picnics, jungle trekking, swimming in the river or lake, or other fun jungle activities. 

Our local house is very very very very very simple. Very. But all jokes aside: The toilet is basically a hole in the ground and the shower a water hose. The meals are local food, and animals roam around our house. But we love it, and we hope you do too. Nothing beats taking away all the unnecessary luxury we usually surround ourselves with, and take a couple of steps closer to mother nature. 

You can volunteer with us whether you are on a holiday, a gap year, on a career break, if you are a senior and retired, if you want an internship abroad or if you just want to travel and experience a place off the maps with your friends or family! 


As a volunteer in Aay's Village, you can teach at our local school, help the community administrate future plans for the village, or protect the untouched jungle of Laos as an environmentalist.


Why don't you shape your own volunteer experience by choosing your own contribution? Send us an email and we can go through everything and plan something you're comfortable with that will help Aay's Village mission.
