Volunteer Program

You can volunteer for the New Hope Cambodia School, Helen Bonner Health Centre and the Community Development program.

Currently our Volunteer Program is not available due to COVID travel restrictions.

When it was operating, we offered the following:

New Hope Cambodia is an established, well-credentialed organisation, supporting Cambodian children and young people to receive a quality education. Volunteers can make a valuable contribution to the school, especially those with specialist skills and expertise.

New Hope Cambodia’s volunteer program is open to people of all ages and from all walks of life. We welcome, singles, couples and families (children under 18 must be accompanied by a guardian).

Volunteers can help:

  • Support our English teachers
  • Help with general maintenance and construction of infrastructure if needed
  • Take part in our community-based projects
  • Help in the Helen Bonner Health Centre

We also periodically require the services of experts including but not limited to:

  • Photographers and videographers
  • Human resources
  • IT professionals
  • Graphic designers
  • Media and marketing specialists
  • Builders
  • Gardeners
  • Artists


There are three areas requiring volunteer support when we are able to offer it again:


New Hope Cambodia School

The School teaches English, math, computer skills, moral and gender equality and sewing. We are always in need of fluent English-speaking volunteers to support our Khmer teachers in the classrooms with pronunciation and grammar. Classes run daily between 08:00 and 10:30 and again from 14:00 to 18:00. We ask each volunteer to commit to the morning, afternoon or both sessions.


The Helen Bonner Health Centre

The Helen Bonner Health Centre welcomes qualified nurses who are interested in gaining experience in a third-world country. We accept Volunteers in this area for a period of 1 week to 1 month. However longer-term volunteer applications will be considered.


Community Development Program

The Community Development Program provides an opportunity for those who wish to assist our Social Workers. Working with families in crisis situations is both challenging and rewarding. It involves problem solving, assisting our Khmer Social Workers with their family reports, and visits to the community. Volunteers for the Community Development Program must have computer skills so that they can assist our staff in preparing and vetting family reports.
