Week 1: Culture Week – Week 2: Village Experience Get stuck into one of our rewarding projects, either social or farming based depending on the season. You will soon realize that you have nurtured a close bond with, and are a welcomed member of one particular family as you share meals with and assist them in their daily routine. You could help them to make chicken/duck huts, build fences, construct toilets, plant trees or repair damaged areas of their home and bathing spaces. What could be a more rewarding way to get to know and understand a culture than to live as a part of it? – Week 3: Central Cambodian Tour – Week 4: Beach Week in Sihanoukville. The aim of this program is to give participants as varied an experience as possible. You will be learning about the culture and the language, visiting varied sites and museums to enhance your historical knowledge, volunteering to give back to the community, immersing yourself into authentic communities and of course having a bit of time to relax and enjoy the beach and other beautiful surroundings.
