If you genuine care about orphaned children and want to give love and care so they can have a chance of a better future, this is the project for you.

Due to many adverse circumstances, many Cambodian children have become helpless orphans. These children need immediate assistance as the orphanages in Cambodia are resource poor and understaffed. The children do not get the attention they deserved. As a volunteer in orphanage in Cambodia, you can do a lot to help the staff care of the children. RCDP International is working with many orphanages in Cambodia so volunteers like you can spend time with the children and inspire them to work for a better life. Volunteers will work with the children, teach them, play with them and most importantly provide them love and attention that they rightfully deserve.

Don't wait, be part of the project now and experience how rewarding the work will be.

Your activities as a volunteer

As a volunteer, you will work with the children and help them with their day-to-day activities. You can help them with homework and teach them English. Also, you can organize fun activities for them to participate in. Your activities can be:

  • Teaching English and/or other subjects and helping them finish homework
  • Organize games, plays and other extra activities
  • Inform children about personal hygiene and the importance of it
  • Notify children about the importance of life skills and daily work like cleaning and cooking
  • Help in the administrative work of the orphanage

This is a sample of the daily work volunteers will do in the orphanage. The actual work can vary according to the orphanage and the time volunteers will choose work in.

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.

Siem Reap: Siem Reap has developed itself as the center of modern Cambodia. The city contains beautiful temples, old French shop/houses and tree-lined boulevards. Siem Reap is a laid-back and a pleasant place. It is a nice compromise between observing Cambodian life and enjoying the amenities of modern services and entertainment.
