You will be able to experience

  • a unique look into the inner workings of a not for profit organization based in Siem Reap
  • the satisfaction of contributing to an organization that positively affects the lives of students and their communities
  • …and doing all that in a pleasant and fun atmosphere with a team that is really looking forward to your stay here!

What difference are you going to make

  • The non for profit website is their best way of directing people towards donations. Every single page of it needs to be attractive so that people keep on reading about our organisation, and finally become donors. By helping with your time and skills you will be able to contribute in making the organization sustainable economically.

The host organisation

  • You will volunteer for a Cambodia-based education and youth-leadership non-profit organization (LNGO). In the fight against poverty, high dropout rates, low awareness of the value of higher education, and illegal migration.
  • They aim to make Cambodian youth in rural areas aware of their own potential and career opportunities, and support them academically, financially, mentally, and physically.

Working environment

  • In joining their team, you will be an integral part of a small (12-person) staff, which is mostly made up of Cambodians (except for one other foreigner heading the Communications Department). While this means you have a lot of responsibility, it also allows for a degree of autonomy and creativity. Furthermore, their staff is proud of the passion and community that binds team members (and students) together, and the positive atmosphere this creates at the office.
