Volunteer in CambodiaGlobalteer is a UK registered charity working in Cambodia with children's, community and conservation projects. Volunteer placements are available in Siem Reap, Phnom Penh and Modulkiri.
We are strictly non-profit, and all of the projects we work with in Cambodia are chosen by us for having sustainable, long term objectives, and for being managed in a professional, caring way, and in keeping with the vision and beliefs of Globalteer.
The kingdom of Cambodia has become a popular tourist destination in Asia. Rich in culture and history, visitors come to see the world renowned temples of Angkor Wat and return because of the wonderful and welcoming nature of the Cambodian people.
Cambodia is still recovering after decades of war in South East Asia and is in the bottom 50 of the poorest countries of the world. Volunteering in Cambodia plays an important role in supporting the many NGOs (non governmental organisations) working to help Cambodia recover, and build a happy, secure future.
You can volunteer in Cambodia with Globalteer and work in community or conservation projects providing valuable support to local charities.
