    Helping out people with disabilities – Paper Recycling

    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.

    Handicrafts is one of the methods used to give people a chance to rebuild their lives.

    Here’s how you can help, and have a fantastic time doing it.

    The organization creates wonderful products from recycled paper and they always need help producing it. You can spend a day in their workshop, learn a new skill and help those less fortunate. It really is a win win situation.

    Paper making is done on Sok San Road, Siem Reap.

    It is about ten minutes from the hotels right in the heart of the city.

    No skill is needed to make recycled paper.  You will be given a workshop (cost $5) to learn how to do the recycling and then that’s all the training you need.

    This is suitable for children as well, so you can have a family day making paper and helping out disabled Cambodians.  It’s a great thing to do with your children, and they really enjoy it.

    The cost is $5 per person to pay for the workshop to learn how to make recycled paper.

    There is nothing more to pay.

    It is a cheap, quick and effective way to make a difference here.

    Papermaking is a one day activity, although you will be welcomed back if you want to help out for a longer period.

    It begins with a paper making workshop at a cost of $5 per person.

    The rest of the day is spent making paper.

    The location is in Siem Reap on Sok San Road. It is about ten minutes from the Hotel.

    Making paper takes one day.  However, you will be welcomed back if you want to spend more time helping out.

    You will begin with the paper making workshop in the morning and then spend the rest of the day producing recycled paper.

    The workshop is surrounded by fantastic cheap restaurants for lunch and is right in town.
