Country: Cambodia
Location : Cambodia, Siem Reap
Duration: 1 week to 1 Year+
Approx Costs: 500 to 750 £ Pound (UK)

This essential construction program was created to help impoverished families into safe and sanitary homes. Housing is a fundamental human right under the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and everyone should have a safe, secure and habitable home. Unfortunately in the poorest areas of Siam Reap, many people do not have adequate housing. 

This program matches willing volunteers with local staff to create a project team to work on a one week house build that will be productive, safe, challenging, fun, and most importantly, will drastically improve the lives of impoverished families. No prior building experience is necessary – just lots of enthusiasm and a willingness to get stuck in to help improve the lives of others. Volunteers can expect to get their hands dirty – and paint, hammer, saw, clean, build, demolish – it’s all there waiting for some amazing volunteers to help! The families and the entire community are genuinely thankful of all of the support volunteers can give them.

Goals of this Project:

·       Provide low-cost, quality housing to impoverished families 

·       Provide safe, healthy homes to enable families to live happier, healthier lives

·       Improve the future prospects of some of Siam Reap’s most impoverished people, and help them to break the poverty cycle

·       Expose volunteers and locals to new cultures

 

Start Dates

This project is available year-round and programs start the every SUNDAY. Volunteers can choose to participate for periods ranging from 1 week to 2 weeks. Longer stays can be arranged directly with the local team, but will be subject to availability and individual visa conditions.

Requirements

Love Volunteers welcomes all those 18 years and over who wish to have a tangible and lasting impact on the lives of families and communities facing extreme poverty in Cambodia. This 'hands-on' project is ideally suited to those volunteers with some knowledge and experience in construction or any of the building trades, however the project is open to all and does not require participants to have specific education, qualifications or experience, as you will be shown everything you need to know by your local project leader. Importantly though, all applicants must first and foremost have a genuine willingness to help, be fit and active, show drive and initiative, and bring a positive 'can-do' attitude. If this sounds like you, we want you on the team!

Additionally, volunteers applying to join this program will be required to supply to following documentation:
