Thai Volunteer Service (TVS)
Thai Volunteer Service (TVS) began in 1980. We used a small classroom of the Social Research Institute at Chulalongkorn University as our office for the Thai Volunteer Service Project. The place gradually became too small to accommodate young leaders from various universities throughout Thailand. During the 1980s it was the changing period not only for Thailand but also for different countries around the globe. University students were eager to come and participate in discussions about democracy and social change.
TVS believes that by providing different training and activities, young people can be encouraged to become volunteers to help those who are disadvantaged in society and can become agents of social change. We believe that by cultivating compassion and humanity, our world can become more peaceful and a better place to live.
