Overview of Friends From Thailand (FFT) Volunteer Program

Throughout the years, promoting development through lasting connections has proven to be a powerful tool. As such, the Friends from Thailand (FFT) Volunteer Program was launched in 2003 to compliment the work of Thai experts and to further strengthen Thailand’s international development cooperation. The program aims to enhance cultural understanding,
mutual trust, and foster people-to-people ties between Thailand and our partner countries.

Each year, a number of Thai volunteers, ages between 21 to 35 years old, are selected to work for a period of 1 or 2 years under TICA’s various development projects, at the relevant agencies or field stations in our requesting partner countries.

Our FFT volunteers’ works range from assisting the Thai Language Teaching Program, working alongside local farmers
in TICA’s agricultural projects, to conducting activities in various fields such as public health and community development.
