I'm a french student volunteering in Cambodia with the association IVHQ, during 1 month this summer.
My mission will be to take care of children by teaching them lessons or playing games with them, it is very exciting for me as it's my first humanitarian mission !
Many children in Cambodia have lost their parents, while other parents cannot afford to provide their children with food, accommodation, or an education. As a result, many children are living in residential care or attend childcare centers during the day while their parents are at work.
Volunteers on the Childcare project are placed predominantly in childcare centers and usually work between 4 to 8 hours per day and have a 2 hour lunch break, which can be spent at the placement or volunteer accommodation. Childcare work ranges from administration, cooking, cleaning, feeding, caring for children, to teaching, assisting with homework and arranging activities such as painting, drawing, origami, singing, dancing and sports activities. Most placements have a focus on education and include classes on Khmer literacy and English language. Topics such as morality, hygiene and Khmer traditions are also discussed with the children. Some placements organize visits to the beach or local villages.
This crowdfunding will be to help me pay my airline ticket as I haven't finished my studies yet.
