Background Information

According to figures of the UNDP, Cambodia is one of the poorest countries in South-East Asia. Over 75% of the Cambodian population lives on less than 2 USD per day, with the figures for the countryside dramatically higher. Basic infrastructure is lacking and education levels are generally low. However, despite these problems young Cambodians are very dynamic and eager to engage themselves

This program is designed for highly motivated volunteers with a passion for assisting those less fortunate than themselves.

Responsibilities on volunteers in Cambodia, will essentially be in the form of construction work. This is a vital and important role, very much needed to ensure the health of the local people.
