Volunteer Cambodia Combination Placements

If you would like to help out at more than one of our brilliant Cambodian projects or just can’t make up your mind which project to work with, then one of our Cambodia Combination Placements is the ideal solution. Read on to find out how you can make even more of an impact during your time in Cambodia.

What is a Cambodia combination placement?

If you would like to volunteer with more than one project and experience even more of Cambodia’s fascinating culture then choosing the Cambodian Combination offers you exactly that. You can combine placements at any two or more of our projects in Siem Reap and spread the love a little bit further.

Even when you change projects you will not have to change your accommodation so you don’t have to worry about packing your bags half way thought your trip. You will still be able to keep in touch and socialise with the other volunteers at our central Siem Reap guest house but you will also get to meet lots more of our Cambodian partners and leave with an even bigger network of Khmer friends when its time to go home!

Community Project

The Cambodia Community Project works with established schools in disadvantaged communities around Siem Reap in Northwest Cambodia. It gives underprivileged children a better start in life by giving access to free education and many other important services. Volunteers mainly help out in the classroom and the playground and we strongly recommend that volunteers spend a minimum of two weeks on this programme. Combining this project with the Women’s Empowerment Project allows you to work directly and to experience life with two different generations of Cambodian society.

Clean Water Project

The Cambodia Clean Water Project saves lives and helps protect livelihoods by giving rural communities access to clean drinking water. Volunteers at this projects help to construct bio-sand water filters which the project then distributes to rural communities, giving training on usage and maintenance in order to maximise the life of each filter. The project is also involved in educational and agricultural programmes and so offers a holistic approach to finding sustainable solutions.

Volunteers on this programme would most likely find the Cambodia Community Project and the Cambodia Food and Farming projects equally rewarding. Read more about the Cambodia Clean Water Project.

Women’s Empowerment Project

The Cambodia Women’s Empowerment Project provides previously marginalised women with new skills, a steady income and the opportunity for personal development in a safe, friendly and fun environment. Volunteers at this inspirational project work with the women who will teach you how to make beautiful products from discarded litter and you can even join them in their town centre shop to help sell their wares. There is also a chance to take part in Khmer literacy classes with your new co-workers. This really is a placement like no other.

Combining this project with the Cambodia Community Project will enable you to work directly and to experience life with two different generations of Cambodian society. Read more about the Women’s empowerment Project.

Food and Farming Project

The Cambodia Food & Farming Project works with communities around Siem Reap to help them move away from the hand to mouth existence of subsistence farming and fishing. Volunteers working on these sustainable food programmes will be primarily assisting local and project staff in the maintenance and upkeep of the market gardens, farms and fish farms run by our partner projects.

You could find yourself digging the ground in preparation for planting, planting seeds, transplanting seedlings, harvesting crops or even gathering organic materials for compost. Because of the nature of this project and the similarities its aims, you may like to combine it with the Cambodia Clean Water Project. Read more about the Cambodia Food & Farming Project.
