Volunteering in Cambodia
Volunteer in Cambodia with a local NGO
Go to Cambodia as a volunteer with Openmind Projects, make an impact! Teach English, IT, teach village children!
Welcome to another beautiful Southeast Asian country with a people boosting an ancient culture and with a proud history, the Khmer Empire! The famous Angkor Wat, is the world famous testimony to this magnificent but long gone empire that once dominated Southeast Asia!
Cambodia, a country of beauty, culture, nature but also tragedy!
Beautiful beaches and steaming jungles, but threatened. A country of richer but also poorer, left behind in the villages.
Cambodia was once a French colony, part of French Indochina, and later ended up a victim to the Vietnam War that led to the horrors of the Khmer Rouge with millions disappearing forever in the killing fields.
Landmines still exacting a toll on farmers working their land.
Why volunteer in Cambodia
Diminishing jungles and wildlife bear witness to a Cambodia where rapid economic development takes precedence over nature and conservation for future generations while leaving the poor behind!
The Khmer Rouge left the people in severe poverty. Almost all of the country’s teachers and doctors were executed by the Khmer Rouge! Unexploded bombs still leave many disabled. AIDS has left many children orphaned.
Exports of natural sources and tourism grow the economy but benefits a few, the urban political elite, leaving the rural and urban poor behind.
Education is a key to change and equality. As a volunteer in Cambodia, you can make your impact!
Cambodia is still a beautiful, a fairy tale country, the azure seas, beaches, jungles and typical Khmer sandstone temples. Asian and Western visitors flock to visit Cambodia and its wonders. And volunteers can enjoy all this while making even if only a limited impact on the ones left behind.
Volunteer in Cambodia with Openmind Projects
Openmind Projects work with local people, invite young people from Cambodia as trainees to our Center in Thailand. We and volunteers support locally run projects! Teach English at a village school or volunteer at a home for orphans.
Openmind Projects supports a village, community project in Cambodia. Volunteers teach English, sometimes IT, at village schools to young smiling children who don’t have an English teacher!
Some volunteers have supported the community in other ways too, by donating computers and other material. There are many ways you can help village children!
Qualified volunteers may join an Australian supported home for street children and orphans.
And, of course this is another amazing chance for the open-minded volunteer to get immersed in local Cambodia culture.
