Unlike many other charities ACODO does not charge you huge amounts of money for the “privilege” of volunteering!
We do ask our volunteers to make a donation of $70 USD per week. This is not equivalent to paying for one day’s food for all the children at our orphanage. If volunteers choose to work with us for a long period of time, such as for three months or longer, please see the donations required in the table below:
Volunteers are responsible for arranging their own:
- Travel and health insurance
- Travel to and from Cambodia
- Daily transport to and from work
- Food and general living expenses
We can provide details on request of hotels and guesthouses that may provide discounts to ACODO volunteers, especially those who decide to work with us for longer periods of time and/or during the low season.
ACODO has a few bicycles which can be borrowed on a daily basis to cycle to work.
Every day we can provide all our volunteers who are working at our orphanage with a free lunch and dinner. You are welcome to eat with the children and enjoy some simple nutritious food. However, some volunteers who do not like traditional Khmer food prefer to eat out locally.
