Local Volunteers (First Graduation Students)
CVCD’s Head Office and local schools are located in Phnom Penh. Phnom Penh is the capital of Cambodia and the home to 2.2 million people. The city has become the nation’s cultural, political, and economic center. Although Phnom Penh has seen strong economic growth over the last decade, the distribution of wealth has been uneven and many residents remain in poverty.
Working in Cambodia
Volunteering with CVCD is easy and affordable! Please contact us for detailed information regarding the cost of our volunteer program. The program fee covers accommodation, food, transportation to/from work, and field trip expenses. CVCD offers three types of accommodations for International Volunteers:
Volunteers will live with a local family around Phnom Penh or Battambang. Host familiesare carefully screened to ensure the volunteer’s safety. Volunteers may receive a private bedroom. Home stay is the best way to learn about the Khmer culture. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are included.
Volunteers will usually share a room and bathroom with one to two other volunteers. Rooms are comfortable, secure, and regularly cleaned. At a guesthouse, volunteers will have the opportunity to meet fellow travelers and volunteers. Breakfast and lunch are provided.
Volunteers can manage their own accommodations. Long-term volunteers may wish to sign a lease for an apartment. Upon request, lunch can be provided.
