Choosing to be a childcare volunteer in Cambodia could be a life-changing decision, for both you and the children in your care. You could really make a difference to the underprivileged children in the Siem Reap area of the country.

 

You will also have the opportunity to tour the breathtaking nearby Angkor Temples, including the incredible Angkor Wat temple. 

 

Teaching is the main focus of your role and the work could not be more varied. From arranging structured lesson plans and taking English classes to teaching the children songs or a new sporting skill. The project is based in a small school near a pagoda (temple).

What will I be doing?

  • Itinerary (2 to 8 Weeks)

Itinerary: 2 to 8 Weeks

Destination info

With a population of over 14 million Cambodia is a small country bordered by Thailand, Vietnam and Laos. It has long been a place of great interest for travellers from far and wide and for good reason with its incredible cultural diversity.

 

Cambodia is a fascinating country to tour with the rich history of the Khmer Empire influencing world-renowned sites like the temples surrounding Angkor. Sadly its more recent, turbulent past witnessed the loss of nearly two million people during the Khmer Rouge regime.

 

In spite of this, the country remains an enthralling place to explore with friendly locals, tropical climate and beautiful wildlife.

  • Location: Siem Reap

You can sign up for the Cambodia Childcare volunteering for anything from 2-8 weeks. The volunteer work available to you is varied and you will soon find that the more you get involved, the more you will get out of this inspiring project. Some of volunteer activities that you may get involved with include:

 

  • Arranging lesson plans

  • Teaching English

  • Teaching the children songs

  • Teaching sports skills

  • Teaching art lessons

  • Playing with the children

  • Creating new activities for the children

  • Encouraging personal hygiene

  • Helping with administration of the project

  • Teaching farming skills

While you are volunteering in Siem Reap you will stay in a unique and peaceful hotel. It is situated away from the hustle and bustle of Siem Reap yet just a short drive from Angkor Wat. You will be working with the children from Monday to Friday 8am-11am and 2pm-5pm. Your weekends are free for you to explore the local area. Daily transport to and from Angkor Wat is provided by tuktuk, a sort of motorized rickshaw and it really is one of the best ways to tour Cambodian cities.

Additional Information & FAQs

Minimum age

Minimum age 18 years old, maximum decided on potential participant's health.

 

Minimum numbers required on this trip

There are no minimum numbers on the trip.

Please note: you may be the only volunteer at your chosen project at any one time. If you have any questions about this, please feel free to contact us

 

Accommodation

Whilst you are on your project, you will stay in a unique family run guesthouse. It is situated in the centre of Siem Reap in a quiet area, not too far from the hustle and bustle of the bars and shops so that you can explore in your free time.

You will share a fan room with up to two other volunteers. You will either have an ensuite in your room or it will be adjacent to your room and access will be exclusive to the occupants in your room. The guesthouse offers internet access and a restaurant. The guesthouse has a free safety deposit box for you to keep any valuables

 

Meals

Breakfast will be provided for you. For lunch we recommend that you buy something from the village and take it with you to the project. For dinner, you can either eat at the guesthouse restaurant or head into the city and try the wide variety of foods on offer at the many restaurants including Khmer, Chinese and western meals. The local food is very cheap to buy and a two-course meal will cost next to nothing compared to eating out in the UK!

 

Is this trip for you?

You may be the only volunteer at your chosen project at any one time. However, you will still have the full support of your in-country team and those at the project. If you are looking for a group volunteering experience we have plenty of options for you to consider.

Creativity, child friendly behaviour and an educational background are important but not essential elements to work with our children. The activities will be held in our basic classrooms or even at the kitchen together with one of our coordinator or one of the senior students. Painting, drawing and singing are the main activities, but we welcome any other creative ideas for special workshops. Please be advised that materials for workshops will need to be provided by you and some by our in-country team. Most of which can be found in Siem Reap.

 

Orientation

Once met by a representative of our overseas partner, you will be transferred from the airport to your accommodation where you can relax and familiarise yourself with your surroundings.

 

The following day the co-ordinator will provide you with information about Siem Reap, Cambodia, your placement, safety and emergency, restaurants, Internet cafes, and anything else you would like to know.Please take this opportunity to ask any questions that you may have about the area or your placement.

 

Please note: You will need to send us a copy of your CV to pass onto the project to take part in the volunteering.

 

Advice & Safety

Throughout your programmes you will have the support and guidance of the programme co-ordinator and team. You will be provided with competent assistance and help with any questions or advice you may need during your stay.

 

You will be assigned a personal travel adviser who will co-ordinate your programme with you. Feel free to contact them at any time before you go, or when you are on your travels.

 

In addition, you will have access to a 24 hour emergency contact number so you can contact one of our UK staff at any time should you need to.

Do you have 3 top tips for future travellers?

1. Even though you meet people on the trip, i would reccomend coming with a friend to make the first week easier. 2. If you can, raise some money before the trip because the school usually have a wish list and its so nice to be able to give gifts in person. 3. Book flights with a flexible return date in case you want to travel after with the people you meet!
