Volunteering in Cambodia

Support community development while exploring the ancient ruins and history of Cambodia

Volunteer in Cambodia with Projects Abroad and help work towards our ongoing development goals that benefit local communities. You’ll get to experience life in this beautiful country, while learning about its history and fascinating culture.


We have many volunteer opportunities in Cambodia that you can contribute to. You can support early childhood development and teach English in kindergartens, or work at disadvantaged schools. Or, travel to rural areas where healthcare services are limited, and help us provide free basic medical care.  


All of our projects are based in the capital city of Phnom Penh, with our offices located in the city centre. Our full time local staff are on call 24/7 if you need support.


When you aren’t volunteering, you’ll spend your time exploring. You can eat your fill of Cambodian chicken curry or fresh fish amok, learn how to Apsara dance, or visit the many buddhist temples.

Where we are based in Cambodia

Phnom Penh

All of our opportunities to do volunteer work in Cambodia are based in Phnom Penh, a magnificent city along the banks of the Tonlé Sap and Mekong Rivers. With many historical sites that detail the events of the Khmer Rouge era, the city is definitely one for history enthusiasts.


Even with Cambodia’s history of war, the city is rapidly developing to keep up with an expanding population and growing tourism industry. In some places, it can be an intriguing mix of traditional and modern life. And, around every corner, your nose will be lead to some of the most delicious Cambodian food.


As you walk the streets, you’ll be greeted by saffron-clad monks, chaotic traffic, and some of the friendliest locals you’ll ever meet. You can spend time at the many Buddhist temples, sample delicious fish amok or Cambodian chicken curry, or visit one of the local markets and modern malls. And only a few hours away, lie the grand Angkor Wat Temples. It’s a trip you can’t miss!

AIRPORT PICKUP, FLIGHTS AND VISAS

When you arrive at your respective airport, a member of Projects Abroad staff will be there to meet you. You can find more detailed information on arrival airports, orientation, and visas on our Cambodia Arrival Procedures page.
