Challenge Snapshot

Duration: 15 Days (21 with extension)
Location: Cambodia
Total Cost: $2,050 ($2,850 with extension)



Despite its charming culture, Cambodia faces a range of social and economic issues, with many families not receiving the support they need to thrive. On this Challenge you will spend two weeks working on a variety of projects aimed at improving education quality in the region to provide local children and their families a brighter future.


Your Impact

You will be working in one of our partner schools to deliver a range of workshops that supplement the national curriculum. Our in-country team has worked closely with local partners to determine the areas in which local children’s education can be enhanced, and you could be running sessions that focus on conversational English, STEM, life skills, creative arts and sports! We encourage our volunteers to be creative and deliver fun workshops that will engage the children and allow them to learn hands-on.  

You will also have the chance to work on a renovation project at one of our partner schools with the aim of creating a safer and more inspiring learning environment. You could be painting an educational mural, renovating a playground, creating a library, installing a hand-washing station and more! 

Following an induction and orientation when you arrive, your project days will be Monday-Friday with the weekend free to travel and explore. We recommend heading to Siem Reap to visit the UNESCO World Heritage Angkor Wat temple complex, an experience that should be on everyone’s bucket list!


Extend your trip and explore the best of Cambodia!

After your challenge you can join our optional extension trip, where you'll spend a week touring some of Cambodia's most beautiful natural landscapes and important cultural sites. Your journey starts in Phnom Penh where you'll explore Toul Sleng, the Killing Fields and the Royal Palace. Next you'll head to Sen Monorom where you'll be trekking across stunning Cambodian scenery with hill tribe home stays and discovering elephants, waterfalls and much more along the way! Finally you'll head to Kratie for a Mekong river boat trip and a chance to see Irrawaddy dolphins!
