Duration: 1 week to 3 months
Approx Costs: 750 to 2500 £ Pound (UK)

Help the poorer communities in Cambodia with their construction projects. The main site is at a local school and your work could include painting, vegetable gardening, making furniture, constructing pathways, building new classrooms and general repairs.

volunteer on a community construction project that greatly improves the environment of poverty-stricken people. In particular, much of the local school has been built with the help of previous volunteers and local tradesmen and you'll be able to continue to assist in the construction of a new pathway, toilets as well as building walls and renovation of the nearby area.

We're also implementing some "educational art", so if you also have some artistic talent, your skills would be gratefully received! The objective is to have several walls on which to display images and sketches of volunteers' home countries.

Example Schedule:

Your programme will start with an introduction week where you’ll visit cultural sites in Siem Reap and learn about language and rich culture of Cambodia. It’s a great way to get to the town and everything required to make your stay more comfortable.

After Siem Reap you will move on to the location of your programme where the introduction week continues. If your programme is 2 weeks or less you can choose to do a few days or opt out of the introduction week and go straight to your project. Please let your Project Coordinator aware of this upon booking.

Monday-Friday:
On your arrival, you'll have a meeting with the Coordinator to discussing what will be required during your stay at the project. There is a focus on light construction work and you will be expected to help with some or all of the following activities:

  • paint the school buildings,
  • work in the vegetable garden, and the flower garden,
  • make tables and chairs,
  • build various elements in the playground,
  • help to construct pathways,
  • build toilets,
  • repair the school wall, and
  • help build the new classrooms

Construction and renovation work is available where required. Tools and equipment, as well as instructions will be provided.

Weekends:
Weekends are always free after each project. You can relax at your accommodation, take a bicycle into town, or expand your sightseeing and visit the many more sites in the Oddar Meanchey Province. You could also take a taxi into Siem Reap for the weekend and visit the amazing Angkor Wat Temple. Friendly staff are always there to make your choice easier with advice.

ACCOMODATION:

You'll live in a comfortable volunteer house. Rooms are single-sex with locked doors, bunk-beds, mosquito nets and a fan– maximum 4 volunteers per room. Wifi is available in the house but not necessarily in your rooms.

There are limited laundry facilities so expect to wash your clothes by hand, but there are some places that you can do laundry in the town too. You will be encouraged to be environmentally aware and to use all resources with restraint, especially water, paper and electricity.

FOOD: All food is included during your stay. The meals will be typical Cambodian fare, including plenty of rice dishes, meat and western food. There are three meals served during the week inside the accommodation and two during the weekend (Brunch and Dinner).
