    Helping Cambodian Communities eOcambo Volunteer Programs

    BUILD A HOUSE IN SIEM REAP

    Volunteers make a huge difference to the lives of people in countries like Cambodia especially by providing housing for families, something many Cambodian families lack.

    eOcambo Hospitality Volunteer Programs connects with a professional community based construction NGO to provide houses to some of the very poorest families in Siem Reap.

    WHO GETS THE HOUSE?

    The house can be donated to a family the volunteer may know; otherwise the village leaders nominate the neediest families in their community. There are some criteria the family need to meet before being considered for the house, this is to ensure that they cannot lose the house once it is constructed.

    Providing a house is a generous commitment from volunteers and equally the families receiving it must make commitments before being given a contract of ownership.

    The contract is taken very seriously, and is monitored by the village leaders.

    HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO BUILD A HOUSE?

    Housing in Cambodia is very different to in more wealthy countries but a safe and secure home is important for everyone, no matter where they live.

    Each house takes around 5 days to build depending upon weather or other issues with the schedule being:

    • 1 day for buying material and meeting the NGO staff, the family and village.
    • 3 days to build.
    • 1 day blessing ceremony and hand over to the family, and a little house warming celebration.

    WHAT SKILLS ARE NEEDED?

    A willingness to help and a sense of humour are the essential skills to work in a village environment where building relies more on physical people power rather than power tools.

    People with construction skills are great, but anyone who can hit a nail is most welcome. The house construction is carried out by an internationally respected NGO and the volunteers work under their direction.

    You will be working with locals, the family’s friends and family and the NGO. It is an amazing experience to build something with the people who will benefit. It can be an eye-opening experience working in Cambodian rural villages, but everyone always has a great time. You may find that you get just as much from the experience as the family receiving the house.
