Volunteer in Cambodia, home of the Khmer empire, and immerse yourself in a rich story of ancient history, tragedy and people striving for better futures
Intern & Volunteer in Cambodia
Spend time exploring the lively streets of Siem Reap, visit the temples of Angkor Wat and enjoy the stunning surrounding countryside with floating villages on the Tonle Sap and the magnificent Phnom Kulen Waterfall.
Siem Reap is one of Cambodia’s poorest provinces, despite the vast number of tourists that visit each year, and in rural and urban areas you will find many locals living in basic conditions, where access to water, education and livelihoods are an issue. Despite the level of poverty, the Khmer people are extremely friendly and will welcome you with a smile!
Our volunteer and internships in Cambodia help the local community in Siem Reap and our volunteer efforts make a sustainable difference for the local people. If you have healthcare experience in areas such as nutrition and dentistry, physiotherapy, or are interested in education, social work or arts volunteering, our programs in Cambodia could be perfect for you!
One of the many perks of volunteering in Cambodia is having free time to experience the country. Whenever you aren’t busy on your project, consider taking local excursions to see the night markets, try horse riding at sunset through the rice paddies, or ride the bamboo train in Battambang. Take time to enjoy the food in Siem Reap that ranges from local favorites, such as amok curry, barbecues, ice cream parlors and French-influenced cafes.
Cambodia’s capital city, Phnom Penh is a 5-hour drive from Siem Reap and is home to the royal palace, a riverfront promenade and museums such as S21, that share the horrors of the Khmer Rouge regime.
Join us and intern or volunteer in Cambodia, where your efforts can make a small difference through working with local staff in the NGOs and communities where it is needed most.
