Professional Volunteering Opportunities in Consultancy, Cambodia

Volunteer as a Consultant in Cambodia

This volunteer micro-business project works with an NGO tackling child trafficking in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. They need volunteers to provide financial planning and business advice to people in disadvantaged communities.

Child trafficking is a real problem in Cambodia, and one of the many causes is poverty. People living in poor communities have few employable skills and have limited options when it comes to saving. This project aims to empower families at a child trafficking centre with enterprise skills and provide a platform where they can focus on tackling the root causes of child trafficking in their communities.

This project is perfect for anyone considering voluntary work abroad or businesspeople on a career break. You can contribute to the development of small businesses in Cambodia.

Here you will find answers to the following questions:

How can volunteer business consultants help in Cambodia?

What will I gain from this project?

What will Projects Abroad PRO provide?

What skills or qualifications do I need?

 

How can volunteer consultants help in Cambodia?

As a volunteer consultant you can use your knowledge and training to help local people. You can work on tasks such as:

  • Performing a study to learn about the micro-business program of the Riverkids Foundation.
  • Taking part in market research to find markets and buyers for skilled trainees.
  • Helping to develop vocational training classes to help women and poor families.
  • Running workshops with local staff, volunteers and trainees to help develop new ideas for the project.
  • Providing advice to former victims of child trafficking who are looking to start a business or gain employment.
A Consulting volunteer project in Cambodia

This project is run in conjunction with the Riverkids Foundation. They look after children who have been victims of trafficking. They also work in local communities to try to prevent trafficking.

Riverkids set up a micro-business project that provides training on basic financial planning, comparison shopping, household budgeting, and negotiating. They also work on life skills such as etiquette, planning and time management. The main focus is to help teenagers succeed in further training and at work.

You will be able to work out an exact schedule with your project supervisor when you arrive. You may want to focus on one business or try to help a variety of people.

This project runs all year round so you can join at any time. You decide how much time you can spare and we will help you get the most out of it.

 

What will I gain from this project?

This voluntary work abroad will allow you to gain experience of how microfinance can help in the developing world. You will get to work alongside local staff, sharing and creating ideas. Working with people who have been through the serious ordeal of child trafficking will also give you a new perspective on life.

You will spend time in a completely new environment, learning about a different culture and way of life. Local Cambodians and other volunteers will want to hear about your life back home and your family and friends. We call this ‘cultural exchange’ and we think it helps our volunteers gain a new perspective on life.

 

What will Projects Abroad PRO provide?

  • Safe accommodation in a house with fellow volunteers close to your project.
  • A local staff member to cook your meals.
  • Friendly and dedicated local staff available to help 24 hours a day.
  • Airport transfers on arrival and departure.
  • Comprehensive medical and travel insurance.

 

What skills or qualifications do I need?

If you have completed a Bachelors Degree in Business Management, Marketing or a related subject then you are perfectly suited to this project.

We will also accept volunteers who have experience of working in a related field but who do not have a degree.
