Volunteering with REACH. Siem Reap, Cambodia
REACH Siem Reap is a registered non-profit organisation that offers 11 integrated programs to impoverished Cambodian children and their families to help them break the cycle of poverty.
The REACH Volunteer Program aims to empower and assist our local Cambodian team to drive sustainable development within their own community. The program is designed to be non-disruptive to our curriculum, operations, team, and students.
Through our 3-step vetting process, volunteers are carefully selected and assigned to projects that are aligned with their skills and interests while also considering our organisation’s greatest needs at any one time. Upon acceptance into the program, our team provides training and support in the lead-up to their placement and works closely with the volunteers throughout their time on the ground in Cambodia. Volunteers are welcomed warmly by our team and there is a strong focus on shared learning experiences through cross-cultural collaboration.
At REACH, we focus on long-term, sustainable projects. We believe that it is essential to build strong connections within the community so that volunteers are not just providing a band-aid solution but are offering support directly to our team that will make a lasting difference, and to ensure this, we highly recommend applicants to volunteer for a minimum of 3 weeks.
The areas where we most need support are:
- Curriculum Development
- Kitchen and Garden Assistants
- Repairs Shop Assistants
- Cycling support
- Communications and Marketing Assistants
- Administrative support
We are also looking for qualified professionals to help us in the following areas:
- Social Workers
- Psychologists and counsellors
- Medical support
- Program Developers
Volunteers that contribute their time and skills with our team become valued members of our global community and are able to remain involved in our cause through a variety of means from afar. Through this program, we aim to forge long-lasting bonds with humanitarians that go on to remain key members of our global community long after they leave.
