Cambodia is one of the poorest nations in the world. People survive with bare minimum and many can’t feed themselves. The country arrived in this state because of its violent past. The recovery process is well underway. Cambodia however cannot survive without foreign aid but corruption at all levels of government means aid is not trickling down to the poor. In this situation, orphaned children have suffered perhaps the most. UNICEF estimates Cambodia has around 100,000 orphans but there is very little help from the government. There are however many local and international efforts underway to house, feed and education these orphaned children. Rustic Volunteer and Travel has cooperated with one of these initiatives and are helping children survive in Cambodia. You can now volunteer in the project and also help the orphaned children. The program is the perfect opportunity for volunteers looking at opportunities to share their love, passion, and skills with these very-unfortunate children who have rarely experienced love in their life.
As a volunteer in Cambodia working for orphanage, you'll be involved in many activities that will raise the moral of the children, make them confident and make them able to dream of a better future. You'll teach the children, mainly improving their English and make them finish their homework. You'll take care of them by making sure they sleep well, are well washed and cleaned and eat properly. You'll also teach them nursery rhymes, play with them all kinds of games and tell them stories. All this will make them feel loved and give them the confidence to work hard to have a better future.
Program Fee Does Not Cover
Whilst there are no specific skills and qualifications required to volunteer in orphanage project in Cambodia, you should be passionate about uplifting the lives of poor children. You should also be flexible and open-minded during the program as working conditions and the mentality of people in Cambodia will be very different from what your used back home.
