Program overview

In Cambodia Love Volunteers offer very worthwhile opportunities for volunteers in a range of fields, all of which can make a difference within a country where poverty is at the top of the list of concerns.

Volunteers have the choice of working in orphanages, clinics and hospitals, or in IT, in social work settings, even in architecture, town planning and the environmental field. There is, alternatively, the prospect of devoting your time in Cambodia to teaching either English or vocational skills, such as hairdressing, or rolling out your communication skills by entering the world of the media.

No matter which project you opt for, resourcefulness is of the essence. Funding is very tight; hence, volunteers need to bring initiative to their projects and the flexibility to suggest creative solutions.

Volunteering in an unfamiliar land is always a challenge. But it will be one of those times in your life when you feel most alive, one to look back on with satisfaction. A spell spent volunteering can be a great prelude to higher education or a means of broadening your experience in preparation for a settled career. Whether fitted into a gap-year before studies, as an alternative to a holiday, or marking a lull between jobs, volunteering in Cambodia is a great opportunity to live closely among and to help a population urgently requiring assistance of every kind.
