Volunteer in Siem Reap
We are looking for volunteers who can commit to working with us for 6 to 12 months to really make an impact.
Volunteers would be working for the Landmine Relief Fund, but also helping out at the Cambodia Landmine Museum.
If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Jill Morse, our volunteer coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The government of Cambodia through the Ministry of Social Affairs, Veterans and Youth Rehabilitation requires all organizations that work with children to have formal procedures and background checks on employees and volunteers. They highly discourage allowing tourists visiting, playing and interacting with children and young adults who live in care facilities. Too often these facilities and the children who live there have become tourist attractions. Orphanages have been closed due to this.
To conform to the Cambodian government requirements, and meet the United Nations Child Protection Standards, the Cambodia Landmine Museum does not allow tourists to ‘visit’ the children in our care. All volunteers are required to undergo background checks and police checks prior to arriving in Cambodia.
