Asking for free volunteer programmes in Cambodia in this December!

Hi,

I am a student from National University of Singapore and during this December vacation, I would like to volunteer in Cambodia for 7-10 days. It is because I would like to make my vacation meaningful and also because I am interested in social activities through which I can make a small change to the place I visit.

As a student who cannot afford such high fees to join other volunteer programmes, I would like to ask whether you have heard of some free or low-charge volunteer programmes in Cambodia.

Thanks a lot,

Hong Phu

Hi,

Personally I think it might be quite difficult to find something - I had a look for something similar (although in Africa) however generally places want people to volunteer for a minimum of 1 month - I guess this is because it takes time to train people.

Some of the volunteer programmes are very expensive, although they do often provide food and lodgings in the price.

Depending on what you want to do (you haven't said) you could perhaps try and email a school or something to see if you could do something like that?

Maybe others can give you a more positive response - I'm just going from experience.

Thanks

I have friends in Phnom Penh that help orphans and poor families with: shelter, food, medical care, schooling, etc. No fees involved to help them out. Send me a PM if this sounds like you might be interested in.
