To work as a childcare volunteer in Cambodia, attending children of the orphanage, will be both a rewarding and challenging experience. In Cambodia, there are more than 250 orphanages which will be happy to welcome volunteers helping with the childcare. Accounting for 8.8% of all children, there are 553,000 single and double orphans in Cambodia. An estimated one-third of Cambodian children live below the poverty line, and their parents can’t afford adequate education. That’s why many families have turned to orphanages in hoping the orphanage could provide a better education for their own children. So the orphanages have become an important institution providing education for a better future not only for orphans, but also the children from families below the poverty line.
This project provides the volunteers a chance to make a difference to such deprived children by helping them on a day-to-day basis. Your volunteer work schedule will include sanitation, learning, recreation and offering extracurricular activities such as drawing, painting, singing, and dancing.
The main objective of the childcare volunteer program is to bring mental, intellectual, physical and social improvement to the orphans.
No specific skill or qualification is required while volunteering in Cambodia for orphanage project, but volunteers with interest in social development of children and who love spending time with kids are appreciated.
