Volunteer on NGO Development in Cambodia

NGO Development in CambodidaVolunteering on NGO Development in Cambodia may help the Non Governmental Organizations (NGOs) offering different types of activities and services. Moreover, the organization aim to improve the living conditions of their populations. However, NGOs are often very limited in financial and staffing resources. Therefore volunteers can fill in the gap an join the team temporarily.

Volunteers make part of the Staff

Many staff members are volunteers that receive no salary for their work and efforts. The volunteers can greatly contribute with their skills and also help to raise funds for social projects. With this support, NGOs can meet their goals and become powerful players at the local level.

As a volunteer in NGO development project you will work closely with the organization helping them in many different ways. Volunteers may work with general administration, organizational development, writing reports and proposals, developing ideas for income generating activities, IT, teaching English, and others.

Volunteers Improve the NGO’s Results

The volunteer house has electricity, cool & hot water and Wi-Fi access. The bathroom is inside all rooms. Bedrooms are comprised of single beds and bunk beds with bedding provided. The house also has a dining area downstairs, a living room with TV & books, and a roof terrace to relax at free time. Volunteers can expect to share a room with one or two other volunteers.

Host Family:

You will have your own room (most likely) or share a room with one other volunteer. The rooms are usually quite simple, the same way your host family lives: a bed and sheets, a fan and maybe a small cupboard to store your clothes. Some rooms might have a private bathroom while others share a bathroom.

Generally, Cambodians are very conscious about cleanliness.

The host family will provide you with three meals a day: breakfast, lunch and dinner. If you prefer to have lunch at work, it might be possible ask your host family to prepare a lunchbox for you.


The Smiley Guesthouse has 27 rooms, all fully furnished with modern conveniences to make sure your stay with us is enjoyable and as easy as possible. The entire building is decorated in a colourful and modern way with a splash of Khmer artistry and style thrown in to make an eye-pleasing environment, add to the fact the place is kept immaculately clean at all times. The owners are also security conscious and have sought to make a safe and secure lodging for your peace of mind.

The Smiley Guesthouse is a family enterprise run by local Khmer who have built the guesthouse up to incorporate everything a customer expects and more. Located in a good place just 10 minutes walking to downtown, the villa is tranquil and serene enough to enjoy a peaceful moment before heading out for a lively evening just around the corner.

Guesthouses in both locations will provide you with 3 meals a day.
