Volunteering in Cambodia

Support community development while exploring the ancient ruins and history of Cambodia

Volunteer in Cambodia with Projects Abroad and help local communities in need. You’ll contribute to ongoing development goals. You’ll experience life in this beautiful country, while learning about its history and fascinating culture.


We have many volunteer opportunities in Cambodia to choose from. You can support early childhood development and teach English in kindergartens, or work at under-resourced schools. Or, travel to rural areas where healthcare services are limited, and help us provide free basic medical care.


All of our projects are based in the capital city of Phnom Penh. Our offices are in the city center. Our full time local staff are on call 24/7 if you need support.


When you aren’t volunteering, you can explore. Enjoy tasty dishes like Cambodian chicken curry or fresh fish amok, learn how to Apsara dance, or visit the many buddhist temples.

Where we are based in Cambodia

Phnom Penh

All our opportunities to do volunteer work in Cambodia are based in Phnom Penh. This is a magnificent city along the banks of the Tonlé Sap and Mekong rivers. There are many historical sites that detail the events of the Khmer Rouge era, so the city is definitely one for history enthusiasts.


The city is rapidly developing to keep up with an expanding population and growing tourism industry. Some places have an intriguing mix of traditional and modern life.


As you walk the streets, you’ll be greeted by saffron-clad monks, chaotic traffic, and friendly people. Around every corner, your nose will be lead to some of the most delicious Cambodian food. You can visit Buddhist temples, browse local markets, and treat yourself to delicious fish amok or Cambodian chicken curry. The famous Angkor Wat Temples are only a few hours’ drive away.

AIRPORT PICKUP, FLIGHTS AND VISAS

When you arrive at your respective airport, a member of Projects Abroad staff will be there to meet you. You can find more detailed information on arrival airports, orientation, and visas on our Cambodia Arrival Procedures page.
