Volunteers will participate in the renovation of one of the projects launched by the association. You don't need to have any experience in construction, just the desire to help and not be afraid to get your hands dirty. Please note that the projects change according to the season. Here are a few projects that have been done by groups of volunteers in recent years, as a guide:
1. Renovation of an educational center for children. The small local schools need a good makeover to make them welcoming and warm to the children. Previous volunteers have renovated the sanitary facilities, kitchens and a common room for meals.
2. Creating gardens and green spaces. In addition to the renovation work, volunteers are used to beautify the area and educate the local people/children about the importance of and respect for the environment.

Construction and renovation missions in Cambodia mainly involve handling, decorating, gardening.... light work suitable for short term missions or combined with a volunteer project in schools.
We invite engineering students looking for long term internships to visit the construction in Nepal and construction in Fiji pages, areas particularly affected by natural disasters that require qualified manpower and offer large building sites.
A supplementary fee of €200 applies to participants under 18 years old. For more information, go to the youth section.
The volunteer house has just been renovated to make volunteers and interns feel at home. Located in a good location, near a local market, restaurants, and convenience stores, the house is only a 7 minute tuk tuk ride or 17 minute walk from the Russian Market.
The volunteer house has electricity, hot and cold water, and a place to store food. It also has internet access. The rooms have single and double beds with bedding and fans provided. Volunteers can expect to share a room with one or two other volunteers. The house also has a dining room on the first floor, a living room with TV and books.
Single rooms are available for an additional $25 per day.
Typical Cambodian meals. Breakfasts are generally composed of bread, omelette and coffee. Dinner consists of a series of dishes cooked by the staff on site such as rice, noodles with vegetables or meat for example. Vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options are available upon request.
Volunteers can share a tuktuk. Allow 2-3$ per day for local transportation.
Donations are not required as a donation to support local communities is included in the registration fee. If volunteers wish, they can bring additional donations. The NGOs are particularly in need of toys, children’s books, school supplies, hygiene products (e.g. toothbrushes). Visits to local schools can be organized by the NGO to distribute the donations.
