Globe Aware's one week program is located in Siem Reap, the gateway to the famous Angkor Wat temples.
As so many have been injured by land mines, or are victims of polio and other debilitating illnesses, volunteers may be able to assemble and distribute wheelchairs to needy recipients in rural villages. The wheelchair project will be possible based on availability of parts and in accordance with shipping and customs regulations.
Volunteers will participate in a variety of projects, including making home repairs in indigenous areas to soft skill projects working with children in a variety of interactive opportunities at a village school in a rural Cambodian village who otherwise have very little contact with native English speakers. You will work alongside a teacher at the school to make sure your time is meaningful and efficient.
Volunteers may also have the opportunity to help in the construction of a chicken coop for a needy village family. A chicken coop will allow the family to harvest the eggs for a great source of protein as well as sell any surplus eggs for a profit. Volunteers may also participate in part of our reforestation efforts in villages around Siem Reap. Outside of the temple complex, trees are not protected. With the construction of new roads and the clearing of large expanses of land, erosion has become a problem. We are working with local villages to set aside protected areas for tree planting as well as alongside new construction.
No special skills are required.
