Cambodia is one of the poorest countries in the world and has faced a lot of crises in the past. Cambodians are still working hard to heal the terrible scars that were inflicted under Khmer Rouge regime and rebuild their shattered but beautiful country. The committed citizens of Cambodia have also established various Non Governmental Organizations (NGOs) in the last ten years to help their communities by introducing different types of development programs and reach the people at the grassroots level. The main target of these NGOs is to uplift the living condition of the population, majority of which live below the poverty line.

When you join the volunteer with a NGO program in Cambodia, you will work closely with the community and help them in every possible way. You will use your skills and ideas to help the NGOs to raise funds and meet their goals by writing reports and proposals and develop ideas on income generating activities.
