Help the disadvantaged Cambodians fight poverty by empowering them with skills needed to secure a better project.

The local communities in Cambodia have come together to fight hunger, disease and neglect. There are various community initiatives currently underway that aim to secure their future through sustainable development. These projects need dedicated volunteers to continue with their community works and achieve their goals. RCDP International is working with these projects to provide placements to volunteers where you contribute through your skills, time and even by your presence. Volunteers can provide substantial assistance in the areas of education, women's development, peace/justice and children development.

Join the project now and share your skills, love and passion to local Cambodians while also immersing in their culture.

Project Location

Phnom Penh: Phnom Penh is the capital city of Cambodia that is somewhat chaotic yet charismatic at the same time. Amid poverty and depravity, this city comes forward as a historical place worth a visit. Volunteers can take a pleasant stroll along the park-like riverfront, where plenty of caf├ęs and restaurants are located. Standard tourist sites are few, which makes the city an ideal place to relax, watch the street life and absorb the city.

Battambang: Battambang is the second largest town of Cambodia and a popular tourist destination. This place is famous for its ancient temples, Buddhist shrines and the bamboo railway. The city is located next to the river and is home home to some of the best-preserved French-period architecture in the country and to warm and friendly inhabitants. The city itself is developing fast but timeless hilltop temples and scenic villages can be seen on leisurely day-trips.

Pursat: Pursat is a beautiful city well known among travelers for its marble carvers and oranges. The waterfall and the floating village of Kompong Luong will never fail to captivate you. Other attractions include Tonle Sap Lake or Cardamon Mountains.
