  • Description

    Description

    I love Cambodia and especially our local community - on this stunning island, the nature, the jungle, the beach, the ocean and scuba diving!

    Having built and set up our Cambodia guest house, over the past 4 years, we are happy to have established it's daily running with good, friendly local staff. To help smooth running and looking after the place and our paying guests - we welcome wonderful, good vibe volunteer/s to join our crew.

    This is our project to give back to the wonderful community who are happy to share their home with tourists and foreign visitors. The project has been 3 years in the fundraising and building, now completed and adopted by the mainland health group, we are at a lovely stage of focusing on it’s sustainability plans. There may be a lot, or little to do on this side of the work, depending on what is going on with the project during low season (June > Oct).
