This two or four week programme combines working with underprivileged children in one of Cambodia's many care centres with some practical work within these communities. Volunteers will live and work in Phnom Penh. During your time here, you will stay in a guest house or hotel.
The work will involve fun educational activities with the children and your ideas for games, songs, arts and crafts will be welcomed. You will also work on some painting and decorating projects to improve the conditions of our partner centres; this work is greatly appreciated by both the children and the local staff.
No trip to Cambodia is complete without visiting the magnificent temples of Angkor Wat, so the weekend trip will allow you time to visit several of the main temple sites. Those joining us on the four week programme will get extra visits and activities arranged during the other weekends.
Every year, thousands of High School Special volunteers actively make a difference around the world. During their time abroad, they contribute towards achieving long-term goals and make a long-lasting positive impact on the communities where they work.
