Volunteer work and livelihood support in Cambodia

Volunteer in Cambodia

Cambodia is a developing country that faces many social issues and marginalised groups, particularly children, often don’t receive the care and support they need.

Institutions in the Battambang region, where we work, are poorly funded and ill equipped to deal with the many social problems that people face. We work with selected local NGOs on behalf of the most needy and neglected.

Community Development Cambodia

Volunteering Work

After many decades of war Cambodia was reunited in 1994 and peace has facilitated development. Economic growth has been maintained at an average of 6% since the turn of the century. This has been led by strong textiles, agriculture, construction and tourism sectors which have led to foreign investments and encouraged international trade. Despite steady economic development, the World Bank estimated in 2007 that around 30% of the population are still living below the national poverty line.

Cambodians have also benefited socially from the political stability. Improving school enrolment and adult literacy rates are reflective of a greater emphasis on education as a means of social mobility.

Cambodia is a developing country that has more NGOs than any other country in the world. Volunteering opportunities are abundant; however, it is important to note that the legitimacy of organisations varies and corruption is unfortunately all too common. International volunteers in Cambodia can help by bringing their skills, energy and compassion to specifically targeted projects with a real grassroots need.
