WorkCam in Cambodia
1. What is a Work Camp?
A short term voluntary project, or workcamp, is a community work project carried out by a group of 5 or more volunteers of different nationalities during a period of between 1 and 3 weeks. It’s a great opportunity to experience, learn, discover and meet – new cultures, people, languages and yourself while investing your time and energy tin a project for the benefit of others, and we proudly say, it is the life long experience to change ourselves and mutual understanding. Workcamp provide opportunities to explore the potential of an international group to work together, to act and to have fun. The group experience is a commitment to working out decisions and problems together. The work is important and not a mere occupational time: all projects answer real local needs, with strong expectations by the sponsors (local communities and councils). The objective is to collaborate to develop a project of voluntary work based around diverse themes –ecology, art and culture, childhood, heritage, renovation, peace building – with the common action of the local population and of a group of international volunteers.
During free time volunteers can rest, take part in workshops or discover the host country, depending on the project and on the initiative of the group.
