Volunteer Abroad - Phnom Penh, Cambodia

Once named the ‘Pearl of Asia’, Cambodia’s capital city has always played an important role in the country's cultural heritage. As a cultural center, it was a hub for both French colonialists and Khmer Empire that, struck by war and revolution, had seen much destruction. Over the last two decades, Phnom Penh is slowly regaining its reputation as a vibrant, alluring city for worldwide travelers and volunteering opportunities can be found in the city and around. If you are looking to lend your skills in the city, causes promoted in the area are mainly related to people and ecological work. Volunteering opportunities in Phnom Penh start from education and poverty reduction, sustainable development of infrastructure and human rights activity, health education, and more. There are many NGO’s and nonprofits focusing on eco-volunteering.

What to Eat While Volunteering in Phnom Penh

The street food combines french, Vietnamese and philippine cuisine and you can find Fish amok, Lok lak and num pang. You can always dine at a restaurant, but just think of finishing your day with sticky rice and a fresh coconut milk, what could be better?
