Volunteer in Cambodia, For many years the Kingdom of Cambodia was off major tourist radars however today it has become a popular destination for all sorts of travelers.  With ancient temples like Angkor Wat, the country has its fair share of tourists especially in and around Siem Reap.  While others are drawn to the white beaches of Sihoukville or near Kep.

The dominant ethnic group is the Khmer, about 95 % of the population. The Khmer people, impress visitors as some of the friendliest, 'happiest' (sabai), and most gentle people they have ever met. The ubiquitous Khmer smile is legendary, as is traditional Khmer hospitality and openness.

Cambodia is a poor country, currently ranking 129th out of 177 countries in the United Nations Human Development Report. much of the population of Cambodia survives on less than US$1 a day, there is a lack of basic health and educational services in large parts of the country and the political intrigue remains as complex as ever. After 25 years of civil war Cambodia's number of illiterate people is among the highest worldwide.

Our projects are available year round.  However the best time to travel is between November and February.  By April the heat has arrived and is oppressive.   Wet season begins in May and lasts through October.

Our programs allow you to take part in meaningful community service work, while discovering the wonders of this fascinating country
