Volunteer with Globalteer

Globalteer is a UK registered non profit charity that serves to help those in need. We place volunteers overseas to work with projects that need your help. This website provides everything you require to make a memorable journey possible.A donation is required for a volunteer placement to ensure the continual existence and improvement of the project. As a registered charity, Globalteer is legally required to ensure that 100% of all monies received are used to promote the charitable objectives. We are an organisation independent of government, politics and religion with the objective to help projects and communities around the world.
The Cambodia project is located in the town of Siem Reap near the UNESCO designated World Heritage Site of the Angkor temples.

The project includes a free education programme for the children, orphanages, day centre for street kids and a water filter project.

The project focuses on the young and vulnerable to assist them in finding a way out of the trap of poverty.

Free Education Programme - Provides local children that are unable to afford the government school fees with the opportunity of a free education. One of the schools is run by Buddhist Monks who teach children from ages 5 to 16 a variety of subjects including English and Japanese. The school has 4 classrooms and 500 students who attend the school for a few hours each throughout the day. Due to the local tourist industry, 90% of the jobs available in Siem Reap require English to be spoken. The children are very enthusiastic about learning and very much appreciate hearing good English being taught and spoken by the volunteers.
Volunteers - Assist the local teaching staff and teach English or Japanese. Teach sports, arts and fun activities.
Street Kids Day Centre - Provides local street kids with a safe environment for the children to play, learn, rest, wash and eat. The 60 children registered to attend the centre are the amongst the poorest and the most vulnerable, spending their day on the streets, begging and selling trinkets. The lucky ones chosen to attend the centre can spend part of their day in a safe environment and have the opportunity to escape their desperate situation to play and act like children once more. On Saturday the centre is open to all the local children who cannot be accommodated during the week. The activities include games with the children, assisting the teachers, helping the older children gain the skills for later in their lives and providing hugs as and when required!
Volunteers - Assist the local staff, play games, sing songs, draw pictures and become a mentor to the children.
Orphanages - The project supports three orphanages that provide a safe home for more than 80 children as well as supporting the poorer children in the local community. The children live in ''family'' groups of five or more. They live in individual houses with a stable carer, while they attend school and receive agricultural and vocational training. An emphasis is put on teaching traditional Khmer dance, music and handicraft arts, which were repressed during the Khmer Rouge regime. The children, some of whom are HIV+, also receive regular health checks from the Angkor Children's hospital. Relationships with friends and relatives are nurtured by regular trips for the children to their home villages.
Volunteers - Assist the local staff, teach English, play games, sing songs, draw pictures and provide individual skills to the project.
Water Filters - In Cambodia, 1 in 7 children die before the age of five from preventable diseases such as typhoid, malnutrition, malaria, dengue. The common denominator in many of these is waterborne illness. To address this issue we work with an organisation that is constructing and providing bio-sand water filters. They are a low cost way to provide potable water to impoverished areas from any water source (ie: pump wells, pit wells, rivers, ponds). Bio-sand water filters are a new technology to Cambodia. They are made of gravel, sand and cement at a cost of US$45 per filter. The filters are easy to construct with locally available materials, install and maintain. The filtration media consists of a layer of gravel, a layer of course sand, and a layer of fine sand. The biolayer holds the key bacteria essential to removing 98% of biological pathogens and 100% parasites. Water poured through the filter processes at a rate of one liter per minute. Each filter can optimally filter 50 to 80 liters of water per day.
Volunteers - Assist in the manufacture of the water filters, take the filters into the Cambodian countryside for distribution to villages.

The location
The project is based in Siem Reap, Cambodia, South East Asia. Cambodia has a population of 13 million, 90% of it’s people are ethnic Khmer, the predominant religion is Buddhism. English is widely spoken, as well as some French and Japanese. Siem Reap is just a few kilometres from the spectacular Angkor Wat complex of temples - we recommend that you allow yourself between 1 and 3 days to visit the temples. The town attracts many tourists and therefore has many restaurants, bars internet cafes as well as museums and cultural activities.

You will stay at a clean and comfortable guesthouse a short distance from the projects. It has en-suite rooms, internet access, a bar, pool table and the upstairs balcony offers several hammocks, a television area, and plenty of space for rest.

Extra activities

Visitors come to Siem Reap to visit the temples of Angkor, there are over 100 temples scattered in the area in various states of decay, some in overgrown jungle, some on lakes. Rest assured everyone leaves with their own personal favourite temple! Some people visit for one day to see the main attractions but we would recommend 3 days exploring the temples to get a much better overview of this incredible period in Cambodian history. On arrival in Siem Reap our project co-ordinator will advise the best ways and times to visit the temples.

The town has many museums and cultural activities for you to visit including…
