MAP’s VOLUNTEER INTERNS HELP MAP
MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE

MAP’s office in Thailand has greatly benefited from the assistance of Volunteer Interns since 2007. An amazing amount of work has been achieved which would never have been accomplished otherwise, and volunteers in return have gained hands-on experience while learning about the work which MAP undertakes, both in the office and in the field. Up till now, these volunteers have covered all their own transportation costs to Thailand, as well as their insurance, food and accommodation while working full-time with MAP for 3-6 months. But not all interested persons willing to help MAP can afford these expenses while volunteering, though they may have some excellent and much needed skills to offer.

MAP would like to increase our chances of finding suitable volunteers or interns by at least offering them lodging in exchange for their contribution. We have found a very suitable house for rent nearby our office, where rent and utilities are about $160/month or $1,920/year.
Your donation can help ensure MAP continues to benefit from having skilled young graduates who are willing to put their newly acquired skills to work in the real world. Interns assisting MAP-Asia are also making a difference to MAP’s overall efforts to raise awareness on mangrove conservation.
Working together, we can make a difference. Please help support this very effective and timely Volunteer Intern program!
Here is how: Donate to MAP
A small donation of just $40 will help support a MAP Intern for a full week! Won’t you please lend a hand with a donation?
