  • Volunteer in Cambodia - eOcambo Volunteers

    Schools Improvement Program

    Helping Cambodian Communities eOcambo Volunteer Programs

    Perhaps not so well understood outside of Cambodia was the total elimination of the Education system during the dark years of the 1970’s under the Khmer Rouge regime. Anyone who was a teacher or involved in any form of organized education was murdered and all books and education materials were destroyed by this despotic regime.

    This left Cambodia in a terrible situation after the Khmer Rouge were removed and despite a marvelous effort on behalf of the Cambodian people often with the help of overseas assistance to re-build their schools and universities many  public schools need renovation and improvement.

    eOcambo Volunteer Programs is supporting a grass roots organization that helps to improve  infrastructure and undertakes renovation projects in more than 20 public schools who provide education to over 7000 students in Siem Reap

    SCHOOL AND LOCATION

    All the schools included in this program are government operated and as Cambodia is still a third world country the funding provided falls very short in many areas, which of course affects the ability of the children to improve their education.

    Generally the government budgets don’t provide enough funding to undertake physical improvements and often repairs and maintenance within the schools leaving the teachers  struggling to lift education standards due to lack of adequate facilities.

    The schools supported are located within 20 minutes from eOcambo Volunteer Programs accommodation. There is a very long list of improvement projects required throughout more than 20 schools in Siem Reap so finding something that suits volunteers regardless of numbers or time available is not difficult.

    PROJECTS AND SKILLS

    As there is so many different projects needing volunteer assistance its not possible to list them for individuals or groups to pick and choose. The organization that coordinates and supervisors the School Improvement program will provide details of their suggested projects based upon how many people and how long they are able to help.

    Volunteers are then able to choose what interests them the most and a budget can then be set to undertake the project. Most projects require very little specialist skills, however there are some larger infrastructure needs where some skill or experience in the building industry would be very helpful.

    A broad example of projects may include:

    • Painting
    • Building
    • Outfitting classrooms
    • Landscaping
    • Improving facilities

    Volunteers need to be willing to donate the funds required to purchase the materials necessary for their specific project. There are no additional service charges or other fees the funds go directly to buying the necessary materials only.
