Cultural Canvas Thailand places volunteers within a local organization called Wildflower Home. Wildflower Home provides safe shelter, education, health and other services to young single mothers who are either pregnant or have very young children with the aim of helping them achieve self sufficiency. Due to their status as women, as poor, as mothers out of wedlock, and for many, as indigenous, this target population faces many forms of discrimination.

The home offers temporary safe shelter to mothers and their children from crisis situations such as pregnancy out of wedlock, domestic abuse and severe poverty. They also provide mothers with educational and emotional support, which will help to move them from crisis and poverty to steady jobs or continuing education. Wildflower Home is a in a rural setting that is similar to the setting from which the woman come. They are taught to live more closely with nature through agricultural sustainability, organic methods or gardening and permaculture design. The type of jobs available at Wildflower are:

Teaching English
Architecture/Tradesmen (ie plumbing, carpentry, etc)
Gardening/Sustainable agriculture/Farming
Fundraising/Grant writing
