Who are we?

Move Lanna is a satellite project of Always Reading Caravan Association (ARC), created to help support smaller projects in the north of Thailand, and to promote the delight of volunteering abroad. Our mission is to reach out to children and adults, with or without disabilities, to enable them to have access to different choices throughout their lives. Not only will this change the lives of so many in rural Thailand, but also yours!


Our team are well experienced in volunteering abroad, and this puts us in a great position to know what volunteers are looking for when making that big decision to move away from home, leave the comforts of 'normal' life, and immerse oneself in the culture and traditions of a far-away new place.


The small profit we make goes back into the community through ARC and the projects you are volunteering for.


Move Lanna was created with the help and support of our 'brother organisation' Move Nepal. We thank you for giving us this great idea and starting point. If you fancy adding Nepal to your volunteer trip then check out the organisation here!


More about ARC and our founder...


Move Lanna's founder and director is Yoshimi Horiuchi (right). Yoshi is a Japanese national but has lived in Thailand for many years now. She set up ARC in 2010 to promote her love for reading to children and adults across Thailand. Fluent in Japanese, Thai and English, and being blind, Yoshi is an inspiration to so many, and a role model for future volunteers to look up to. The time has now come where we want to expand ARC and build partnerships with other small NGO's - this is where Move Lanna comes in.



So that's us, and then there's YOU! Take a look at the rest of our site and see which program best suits you. We'd love to hear from you and see how we can put your existing skills into volunteering.
