PROGRAM OVERVIEW

On this volunteer challenge you will spend 2 weeks working on a range of health promotion interventions aimed at improving awareness of key health issues in the community. You will be challenged to step out of your comfort zone and think creatively while being part of a long term solution to improving overall community health.

 

who can volunteer?

If you have work experience or are studying in a field related to medicine, nursing, public health, biomedicine, allied healthcare or science, our Cambodia Health Promotion Challenge is perfect for you! 

 

what you'll be doing

You will be volunteering with local community members including school children, teachers and parents to deliver health workshops focusing on important health topics like hygiene and sanitation, human anatomy and bodily function, diet and nutrition, girls and women’s health and non-communicable diseases. These workshops will play a big role in increasing the overall health of the community because families will receive the knowledge they need to keep themselves and their families healthy.

 

You will also have the opportunity to volunteer at local health clinics, shadowing nurses and doctors during their daily rounds. This is a chance to observe and gain a deeper understanding of the Cambodian healthcare system and the challenges it faces, providing additional insight for your health workshops.    

 

weekly structure

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 volunteer trip

After your volunteering you can join our optional extension trip for $800, 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!
