National figures indicate that nearly 40 percent of the population is younger than 15 in Cambodia.

Description du projet et du rôle des volontaires

Cambodia has a young population. National figures indicate that nearly 40 percent of the population is younger than 15. Coupled with high levels of poverty, the demographics of Cambodia make children especially vulnerable. Malnutrition is a serious problem, and a large percentage of children have limited access to education and healthcare. Many work in the street or wander as beggars. Worst yet, some are forced or tricked into the Cambodian child sex trade and its underworld of disease, drugs and violence.

The caregiving projects empower volunteers to work with vulnerable children. Volunteers bring affection and friendship, and help create more nurturing environments. They contribute to the positive development of the children and help the local staff overcome poor conditions. Additionally, volunteers bring different backgrounds that help broaden the minds of the children. Volunteers live in Phnom Penh and work in the city and surrounding areas.

Volunteers work three to five hours a day in centers for children with a range of ailments, including autism, cerebral palsy and Down’s syndrome. Additionally, depending on the center, some of the children are HIV positive. Volunteers assist the local staff in playing with the children; helping them during their rehabilitation and therapy exercises; and leading activities like homework help, painting and singing songs. As needed, volunteers also help clean and feed the children.
