Are there any websites or organisations I could visit while in Cambodia to offer some volunteer assistance for a week?

    How do you qualify to do volunteer work? Do you have a medical license, teaching experience, done work with NGOs abroad, for example? If you are interested in a serious volunteering stint, then a lot of places will want yo to commit long-term, starting with a year or so. over 9 years ago

    Hi Jaidev,

    I know you posted this a while ago, but if you're still interested in socially responsible travel/volunteerism in Cambodia, you should check out friendshipwithcambodia.org. They offer tours in which trip participants eat in restaurants that are training programs for former street children, visit fair-trade craft shops that employ landmine survivors, and stay in locally-owned hotels that prohibit sex tourism. In addition to visiting the ancient temples of Angkor Wat and the floating villages of the Tonle Sap lake, trip participants spend time in a rural village and see Friendship with Cambodia’s humanitarian projects.

    They also publish a socially responsible travel guide: http://www.friendshipwithcambodia.org/programs-education.php. It's really helpful, and each recommended location has been thoroughly examined for ethical practices.

    Hope this helps :)

    There is this orphanage called New Hope for Cambodian Children. Look them up. They'll give you some volunteer work. I have been there. It is run by two foreigners. over 8 years ago

    @Simone: The travel guide is about $15US. I'm not sure about the trip. I'd recommend contacting Friendship with Cambodia directly to find out more.
