Daily Schedule: 09:00 – 16:00 Daily plans at a residential centre, home to 55 – 60 children
Information about daily routine
The centre is home to around 55 – 60 children and a volunteer duty is to organise a fun day for the children filled with different activities. The activities are planned before the group’s departure during the preparatory sessions and these include: yoga for children, fun subjects where children learn different vocabulary in a fun setting, craft lessons, games, cooking & physical activity just to name a few. It includes also academic subjects such as Maths and English and may vary accordingly to the child’s level of education. Throughout the day, the volunteer is expected to give children attention, care & fun teachings together with aiding in the daily chores of the centre such as help with cooking, washing clothes and gardening, where staff grows crops used for the centre’s sustainability.
The quarters for volunteers are available through a partner Volunteer NGO of Reaching Cultures and are not run by Reaching Cultures. This is done so that volunteers are safe and well cared for throughout their placement in Cambodia. They are situated 15min drive away from the working placement in Phnom Penh, Cambodia’s capital. The cost for the services provided by the Volunteer NGO is collected prior to placement so that it is transferred to the NGO on time before your arrival.
The services provided by the Volunteer NGO:
© Airport/Bus station transfer
© Food (3 meals daily) and accommodation for the duration of your stay
© City tour on the first Sunday: visiting S21, Royal Palace and Buddhist Temple

The volunteers’ quarters are basic yet comfortable. The volunteers share rooms between 2 to 4 people within their group. Some bedrooms are equipped with 1 or 2 double beds. Each room is equipped with an AC and WI-FI facilities. The volunteers decide their sleeping arrangements in the rooms. Each bedroom has a private bathroom. Rooms have lockers where one can store important items e.g. passport.
The quarters have a common dining room. All meals are provided by the quarters’ staff. You will not be cooking your own food, however you are free to inform us of any allergies, intolerance or foods which you do not eat. Breakfast and dinner are provided at the quarters.
