    Helping out people with disabilities – Gardening

    Helping Cambodian Communities eOcambo Volunteer Programs

    Cambodians who are born with or acquire a disability have an especially difficult life.  There is a social stigma attached to disabilities because Buddhism says that it is a punishment from a former life.

    The repercussions of this on some people mean shunning and being forced to move from their village. Our amazing partners help these people out in many ways, including finding a way to make a living and reagin their dignity. One of the ways they do this is with their organic, urban farm.

    “Full Belly Farm (FBF) is a small wheelchair accessible organic urban farm in Siem Reap, Cambodia. Opened in mid-2017, the farm is a place where people with disabilities receive food, shelter and training as a leg up in their fight against poverty. It is a nurturing environment that sows the seeds of dignity, cultivates hope and harvests empowerment. The farm provides residents with an opportunity to take control of their lives and to create a meaningful future for themselves and their families.”

    You can help out on Full Belly Farm and bring your children!

    Full Belly Farm is in Siem Reap City, about a ten minute tuk tuk ride from the hotel.

    There really is no particular skills required other than the ability to pull out a weed and have a laugh with the residents.

    The managers of Full Belly Farm have a list of things they require help with to suit all skill levels. There is even jobs for children!

    However, if you are a gardener, you will find plenty of activities where your skills and experience will be very useful.

    This is suitable for families, and it’s especially valuable for urban children who don’t often get to play in a garden and learn about how food is produced.

    Your only expense is the transport there and back.
