From backpacker party pads to pimped out hotels, Siem Reap is one cool city and with Angkor Wat on your doorstep it’s hardly a bad place to be calling home for the next few weeks. Whilst living in the middle of this hustle and bustle there will be a serious side to your ventures as you take the reins of various effective projects.
Despite its beautiful exterior, Siem Reap is one of the poorest regions in Cambodia, where the difference between rich and poor is stark. It’s estimated that only half the population have access to clean water, many people don’t have toilets and the majority don’t have a sustainable income. This is where you come in as you’ll be spending your mornings working on water pump, toilet building and income generation projects within a community.
That leaves the afternoons open to a whole other project. Education in Cambodia is poor, so poor that the majority of kids are forced to spend their time on the streets rather than in a safe, secure schooling system. Working alongside a local NGO you’ll be working hard to combat this by helping with construction projects, teaching English and inspiring children to brighter futures.
