NGOs play an important role assisting vulnerable people in Cambodia, despite only having limited financial resources and relying heavily on international funding drives. As a volunteer, you’re able to work at the heart of a range of initiatives to enable them to make the biggest difference possible in the community.
NGO volunteers can assist with projects that focus on fields of community development, human rights, health and HIV/AIDS awareness, gender issues, environmental issues and education. Placements are decided based on a mixture of your skills and interests, and where there is the most need for help at the time.
While on your project, your duties will reflect your own strengths and what your NGO needs most. It can include assisting with fundraising, reporting, teaching English, organizational development, administration, research and providing IT assistance. Longer term volunteers who are on the project for more than eight weeks are more likely to gain more independence, and can even help with field research.
The Working with NGOs project is open to volunteers over the age of 19. You’re required to have relevant experience in the field you wish to work in. There is a minimum duration requirement of five weeks and you will need to bring your own laptop.Apply now
