Some of the people who keep Khao Tham running for you are:
- [drg_link link=/retreat/teachers/tookata-sookkasem/ title=”go to Tookata page”]Khun Maninee “Tookata” Sookasem[/drg_link] — Retreat Manager
- Kate — Social media
- Ö — Cook
- Nou, Kid, Comb, and others — Maintenance and repairs
- Anagarika Balo (aka [drg_link link=https://www.webwalker.to/walker/ title=”go to walker/balo at WebWalker.to”]Walker[/drg_link]) — This website; leaf maintenance
- Pui and Little Guy – our doggy protectors
Each retreat will also have [drg_link link=/the-center/volunteer/ title=”go to Volunteer page”]volunteers[/drg_link] who are also taking retreat or who have come from outside.
All staff are volunteer. Just like [drg_link link=/retreat/teachers/ title=”go to Teachers page on this website”]the teachers[/drg_link], none receive any financial benefit from their service to Khao Tham.
The maintenance team do get a small salary, nowhere near matching the amount of work they put in.
We all do it for dhamma and for Khao Tham.
