"My four weeks of volunteering in Chang Dao and Pai was a fantastic learning experience. The families were welcoming; including us in their day-to-day rituals and cooking delicious Thai food for us. We helped build a nursery, participated in sustainable farming planting pineapples and Tik wood as well as built a water reservoir. We cooperated with the villagers and enjoyed working as a team with the most positive spirit! Would highly recommend this learning rich experience where your contribution is to a good cause."
"I volunteered at DCC over the course of a year when I was living in Battambang City - I ran an English conversation class with the older students at the weekend. DCC has been built by Vanroth from the ground up in his own home community. Having this facility means that young people who otherwise would have to travel a long distance for education or access to computers can do so close to home. This has a great impact on their ability to take further studies and find employment. I really recommend DCC as a volunteering option if you are in the Battambang area and have teaching experience - you can make a real difference to these young people, who are incredibly friendly and welcoming and grateful for your support!"
