Cambodia is a must visit destination in South East Asia and an excellent place to volunteer abroad. Projects are available for anyone interested in volunteering in the developing world, whether you are on a gap year, summer vacation, or career break. Projects Abroad is based in Phnom Penh, Cambodia's spirited and charming capital city, and in Siem Reap, the gateway to the Angkor Wat temples. In both locations volunteers live together in shared apartments close to the city centers.

We offer a variety of projects in Cambodia such as Care, Teaching, Medicine & Healthcare, Conservation & Environment, Microfinance, Journalism, Human Rights, and a Culture & Community project.

Volunteers ages 16-19 have the opportunity to join us on one of our High School Specials. These projects are structured and supervised. Volunteers follow a daily itinerary, including a weekend excursion. We currently offer Care & Community, Conservation & Community, and Medicine teen projects in Cambodia.


By traveling to Cambodia you will be amazed by the juxtaposition of vibrant cities, beautiful scenery and famous historical landmarks like Angkor Wat. The world famous gathering of temples near Siem Reap is a must see for all visitors - climbing over huge tree roots to the entrance of partly hidden doorways is guaranteed to bring out the Indiana Jones in anyone!

However, Cambodia offers far more than ancient temples. You can go elephant trekking in the East, snorkeling and dolphin watching in the seas surrounding Sihanoukville, or take in the sunset at a local beach restaurant.

Traveling to the neighboring countries is easy. You can follow the well-trodden tourist trail into Thailand, but border crossings are also accessible into Laos and Vietnam. The options are endless in this amazing country.
