Why we are different

Unlike most other volunteering organisations, LemonGrass is a genuine 'not for profit' organisation. We have no shareholders or directors who are looking to benefit financially from our activities. Whilst we have both western and Thai staff, all our western staff work for free. Being a Thai based company our overheads are significantly lower than similar western based organisations. We pay our Thai staff fair local rates ensuring that all volunteer's fees are kept to an absolute minimum and that all money goes only to either Thai people or Thai businesses. We believe this is only right and this approach means volunteers can feel confident that their effort and money are really contributing to the development of Thailand and its people.
