We are traveling in July to Bangkok & would like to volunteer in Cambodia & or Vietnam. I have looked at sooooo many websites & each & everyone of them want over $1500/pp to volunteer you time. Does anybody have any suggestions on a program that would charge us for a room & meals? We are traveling with 2 girls 13 & 15 yrs. old. We would like to help for 7-10 days. Any help in GREATLY appreciative.

I don't know what kind of volunteer opportunities are available, but try contacting HeritageWatch.org. They might have something going on.
Please visit our website at www.sagecambodia.org and lets see how we can best use your kind offer of help out at the schools. You will find my email contact there.
I have friends in Phnom Penh that help orphans and poor families with food, shelter, health care, school, etc. They can always use another pair of hands to help with projects. There are no fees involved. If you are interested,
send me a PM. Mike
Thank you everybody for you input I will look into all of them!
