Discover Cambodia like you’ve never seen it before on our women’s empowerment program! All our women’s empowerment programs aim to increase gender equality in the community through various forms of English lessons, health or life skills classes. We work with Phnom Srey Organization for Development (PSOD) as our local partner, whose goal is to contribute social development through initiatives to empower and educate women, and young people.

Our program aims to sustainably equip these women with the necessary skills and tools to help eradicate poverty and increase education levels throughout the country in the long term. While working in collaboration with the local community you will gain valuable skills to develop yourself personally and professionally and improve your own future job prospects.

Kampong Cham itself is a tranquil town with many attractions to offer including great views of the Mekong River and wide boulevards lined by restaurants, cafe’s and colourful colonial buildings. You can also visit the local freshwater seafood market which boasts all types of delicacies from juicy snails to fresh fish and shrimp.

Typical day

From Monday to Friday volunteers will be teaching one of our mixed English classes for the local community.  Depending on which classes you teach, you may work with children from local villages, young adults hoping to better their employment through learning English, our local monk students or local businesses hoping to improve the skills of their staff members. 

As part of this programme, volunteers will also be responsible for planning and leading workshops, training or classes all geared towards improving gender inequality.c

Volunteers will be guaranteed training in women's empowerment as well as at least one workshop which you will lead that focuses on this topic. The rest of your day will be spent providing capacity to our other classes. Volunteers will have a busy day and will undertake a variety of tasks so must remain flexible.

As a volunteer you will be able to introduce the topic of women's empowerment to many of our students who will not have discussed such a concept before. You will receive training based on research by past participants on women and their position in Cambodia. 
Volunteers will also be able to work with a whole host of women: from all backgrounds and ages providing a truly diverse experience.

Free-time activities

Spend your evenings cycling along the magnificent Mekong river and round the neighboring islands of Koh Penh and Koh Thmey or pick up freshly made coconut pancakes along the bustling riverside promenade. On weekends practice the art of getting lost in the splendor of Kampong Cham’s rural beauty with its many medieval temples and stunning mosques.

If you can travel further afield visit the capital city of Phnom Penh to enjoy the electric atmosphere of the bustling riverside, visit the sprawling markets or immerse yourself in the history of the Khmer Rouge with its sights and museums. Travel south down to the many spectacular islands off the Southern tip of Cambodia where you can spend the weekend island hoping to enjoy the stunning beaches, trek through uninhabited jungle or practice your snorkeling and explore the underwater world. Travel north and you will find the 12th century temple ruins from the Khmer Empire, the famous Angkor Wat.
