PROGRAM OVERVIEW

On our Cambodia Health Promotion Challenge you’ll be immersed in the local culture on your volunteer program in Battambang, an area known for its beautiful colonial architecture, bat caves and the river that flows through its centre!

 

How you can help

As a health volunteer in Cambodia, you will be involved hands-on in our health education program. Working primarily with children in local primary and secondary schools you will be designing and delivering important health workshops that cover topics like:

  • Hygiene

  • Water and sanitation

  • Food safety

  • Disease transmission and prevention

  • Female hygiene and menstruation

  • Habits for a healthy lifestyle

These workshops will help impact children and their families in Battambang to live healthier and longer lives.

program structure

When you arrive in Cambodia you’ll be met by our team at the airport. Over the next few days you’ll have a thorough induction and orientation where you’ll learn about Khmer culture and history, get your bearings around town, meet community partners, visit local health centres and gain a better understanding of the context of the projects you’re working on.

Over two weeks, you’ll volunteer Monday – Friday with the weekend free to do your own travel and exploring. Your day will usually be structured with a morning session (approx. 3 hours) after breakfast and then a session of the same length after lunch. Your afternoons and evenings will be free for you to relax and explore Battambang or do any required preparation for the next day.

On the last day, you’ll either be transported back to the airport in Siem Reap or you can join our extension trip overland tour of Cambodia!

Next you'll head to Sen Monorom where you'll trek across stunning Cambodian scenery and spend the night in a homestay at a local hill tribe village. Finally you'll head to Kratie for a Mekong river boat trip and a chance to see Irrawaddy dolphins!
