We invite volunteers from all over the world to come to Cambodia to learn about development issues and culture.
Asia Volunteer Network (AVN) is a non-governmental organization and non-profit organization based in Cambodia. AVN was founded by and employs only native Cambodians. Our office is right in the heart of Phnom Penh making it easy for us to stay in close contact with our volunteers and ensure they are having an amazing experience.
Cambodia is a beautiful country with many issues that require the skills of international volunteers to help solve. Instead of charging large volunteering fees, we at Asia Volunteer Network require only the bare minimum the cover our volunteers' accommodation and meal expenses. We value impact more so than profit.

These organizsations aim at supporting the local communities. On the one hand, we want to support them by providing their youths with a proper education and thus, do something for their future and by rebuilding and building, and, on the other hand, we want to help the locals by supporting them in establishing their own little businesses for them to be able to take care of their families and their communities.
