|Why Volunteer With US?|
WE ARE A LOCAL ORGANIZATION:
VAC is a part of STAR Kampuchea (SK), the non-profit local organization established since 1997, and is dedicated to building democracy by strengthening civil society. In 2014, STAR Kampuchea was honored with an award for Civil Society Development by the “World Association of NGOs (WANGO), based in Washington D.C, USA. Within SK’s reputation, VAC has built a wide network of local placements, especially in NGO support projects.
STAR Kampuchea has its own office building and collaborates with our partner guesthouse for volunteers' accommodation, located in the central of city. There are always security guards within 24h especially; the VAC team will assist you anytime. Additionally, volunteers/interns can also choose to stay with our host families who can also assure your security and cultural exposure.
MODERATE PROGRAM FEE:
As mentioned in our vision, mission, and beliefs, VAC values the impacts of international volunteers/interns toward our society more than a profit. That amount of program fee is charged barely just to cover the expenses of staff, accommodation, and meals.
We highly appreciate responsible volunteering which is why we choose our local placements carefully. We are working only with secured and responsible workplaces. Importantly, all volunteers/interns are only accepted when they have obtained a criminal background check and other required documents.
