    Description

    We are a Norwegian couple building and running a dive center on the beautiful island of Koh Sdach.

    We need help to build a pathway and other structures with cement, rocks and glass bottles.
    Since there are termites in the jungle, wood does not work, and we also have to recycle glass and other items in a creative way by using them as materials.

    You are strong and know your way around building with cement, sand and rocks.
    You also need to be a bit creative, sometimes tools and the materials you want is not available on an fisherman island, but we have to make it work anyway. #island life

    You can stay for at least one week or longer, we will feed you well and lets hope we have time for a boat trip or two.

    We have 2 khmer staff. Lin our captain and everything else and Sophia cook and housekeeper.
    We also have 3 dogs, 2 cats and some monkeys living next door in the jungle.

    We offer accommodation Khmer style, a bed or hammock in the main bungalow or other available accommodation, depending on guests. we will feed you well and give you an introduction to island lifestyle.
    If you can come now and stay for minimum 1-2 weeks, that would be great

    We have sometimes limited internet connection and we are not always able to answer all you wonderful volunteers that want to help us.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    As David Attenborough said in Planet Earth II: “Island life forces the animals to think differently”.
    We are off the beaten track, and have a lovely Island where local fishermen and their families live. Going to the marked and interacting with the local culture and learning some of the language.

    Shared, taxis and buses go everyday from from Sihanoukville, Phnom Penh and Kampot.
    It is also possible to take a helicopter here, but that might blow your budget.
