Volunteer in Cambodia is much more than Angkor Wat, the mighty ruins of an ancient temple complex that has captivated tourists for years. This Asian country is boasts beautiful beaches, unbroken rain forests, and an idyllic rural landscape dotted with gentle rivers, caves, rice fields, and ornate ancient temples. Our Volunteer in Cambodia programs are based in Phnom Penh.
Cambodia’s recent history has not been pleasant. The country has been pushed to the brink of poverty along with human rights issues such as child trafficking and persecution of minority groups. Other issues include environmental degradation and poaching of exotic wildlife. As a volunteer in Cambodia, there are many internships and volunteering opportunities for you to positively impact the country while making the most of an adventurous vacation.
Volunteer Opportunities in Cambodia
Ever since the Khmer Rouge, an organization that incited country-wide genocide for 31 years, came to an end in 1999, the country has been in rehabilitation. During the Khmer Rouge takeover, creativity, self-expression and education were condemned as acts against the government and Cambodians are still in a transition from communist rule to a liberal society, and volunteers are much needed to help in almost every sector as the people of Cambodia are trying to gain heir own voice and exercise their right to self-expression. Phnom Penh, the capital city of Cambodia is where we offer our life changing volunteering programs.
