About the local hosting organizationTHE GREEN LION
About the volunteer workProgram Description We work with several local schools to encourage the development of health education in cooperation with the provincial health department. In a country such as Cambodia, especially in rural areas, this is of extreme importance. Our program is designed for those with a medical background, your role will be based on your level of experience and the judgment of local doctors. We encourage participants to prepare work and lessons before their arrival. Topics like the following should be your main concern: Sanitation/hygiene Sexually Transmitted Infections Body Health Keep in mind that you will be teaching in rural schools and working with basic resources, you will need to get creative!
Local accommodationAbout the Accommodation The accommodation in Samraong is simple and natural. There are no laundry facilities, so expect to wash your clothes by hand. However, there are some places that you can do laundry in the town too at a small cost. There are bikes available, which you can use to explore the area during your free time! Food Arrangements Your meals will be typical Cambodian style, including plenty of rice dishes, meat and at times, western food. Snacks are available between meals too!
About the project locationSamraong, which name translates from Khmer into 'impenetrable jungle', is a town located in northwestern Cambodia, close to the border with Thailand. You will be located in a small, rural village located in the outskirts of town. This remote location will give you a taste of what rural Cambodia looks and feels like, while at the same time allowing you to explore some of Cambodia's highlights, as Siem Reap is located only two hours away. Sights & Surroundings: There is a nearby park where you can relax or play volleyball with locals during your free time. Further away is Siem Reap, which is two hours away from the accommodation. Participants often opt to head there during the weekends to explore the famous Angkor Wat and more!
