Volunteer in Cambodia

Throughout 2017 health promotion and education volunteer programs will take place in villages around Cambodia.

Our volunteer program  begins in the capital Phnom Penh before travelling to Siem Reap. Using this as our base we will visit outlying villages and providing health education and basic health assessments. In the second week we will head to Battambang and continue the health promotion program there before heading back to Phnom Penh.

No healthcare skills are required for this program and it is open to all ages with any level of education/life experience. We are able to tailor the program to take full advantage of the array of different skills our volunteers can bring to the program.

All volunteer programs are designed to give you the opportunity to have fun in the bustling towns of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap and Battambang and explore the amazing Angkor Wat temples. You will also experience village life and get to know and eat with local families.

    Hi, I’m interested in either the December or January trip but was planning on also going on my own trip either before or after the program began. is that ok to do that or is there requirements as to when we have to fly in and out (in a group)? Also, I’m not planning on doing nursing or social work, is this still ok?
    Thank-you!

    Hi I’ve been to Cambodia a few times. It’s my favorite travel destination. I currently work in aged care. I was wondering if I’d be qualified enough. I have also a diploma in Mental health. I also understand there is very little help and advice for families who have elderly family members living with dementia. I have worked in dementia enclosed alot in the past and would like the people of Cambodia to have a better understanding of it. I’m interested in volunteering.

    For anyone looking for a volunteer opportunity I recommend SVPI. I did the Cambodian trip in 2016 and it was incredible! One of the most amazing experiences of my life.
