Make a positive impact ethically.


Siem Reap offers ethical volunteer experiences for international humanitarians from around the world. Enjoy all that the incredible tourist hub ‘Siem Reap’ has to offer, while also giving back to children and families in desperate need.

With our focus being on empowering Cambodians to drive sustainable development within their own communities, we invite skilled professionals and compassionate English speakers to assist our local staff in facilitating this change.

We employ a wonderful team of permanent local Khmer staff, as such, our Volunteer experience is structured in a way that is nondisruptive to our curriculum or operations. We have stringent policies in place, and ongoing staff training to ensure that your time with us is not only rewarding for you, but mutually beneficial for our school and the children that we serve.

The success of REACH Siem Reap relies heavily on the time, compassion and dedication of Volunteer from around the world. We whole heartedly value and admire every single person who supports our cause, without them, we would cease to exist.

Only a life lived for others is a life worth living.
