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 cafés 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.

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.
