Volunteer in Cambodia

What will I be doing?

You’ll be working alongside local people to build new classrooms to help improve access to education for children living in Pursat. You don’t need any building experience to take part - just enthusiasm, a willingness to work hard and the desire to make a difference!

Cambodian Food

Food

Cambodian cuisine is typicaly bright in colour and inspired by neighbouring countries Vietnam and Thailand. You can expect plenty of soups, rice, vegetables and fresh water fish!
