The HuffingtonPost describes volunteering in Cambodian orphanages as one of the top ten life experiences that will make you a better person. There is simply no other place to do this than in the ancient Cambodian capital city, Angkor Wat. For a Bamboo Angkor Wat volunteer, you can explore this place in a deeper level through inspiring orphanage outreach programs in the Siem Reap.
Why go for this program?
This outreach program organized by the Bamboo Angkor Wat volunteer project gives you an opportunity to befriend and mentor kids, giving them some direction in life. This program is quite involving and you get to be a part of the kids’ extended family and support networks as well. You will be living, working, and playing with kids – along with staff members at the orphanage.
A lot of kids have been orphaned as a result of parents who died of HIV-related conditions. Many of these kids are also HIV-positive. They have been traumatized early on in life and you have the opportunity to help relieve some of that trauma – through mentorship and direction on how they can work for their future and make better life choices.
There are many beneficial activities that you can take part in if you are part of the orphanage. These include activities such as organizing games at the orphanage and teaching kids English lessons, as well as teaching art lessons and dance lessons. You can also teach kids at the orphanage to play sports that they can participate in.
As part of the orphanage volunteering program in Cambodia, you can help the orphanage by supporting their feeding programs, childcare services, offering HIV education in the community, and teaching tolerance to kids – helping them cope up with life challenges including issues of diversity.
What is the payoff from an orphanage volunteering program that is organized by a Bamboo Angkor Wat volunteer program?
Most of us volunteer for deeply altruistic reasons. It makes us feel good about ourselves that we have done something to make a difference in someone else’s life. It is a very liberating feeling for you as a volunteer. But for kids without parents, the time you spend with them – mentoring them and giving them direction in life – are the most precious ones that they will never forget.
