Hiya, if you're passing through Siem Reap to visit Angkor, drop me a line. Working at an orphanage for a while near Siem Reap. Doesn't cost anything, just some of your time to help. It's a great place and the kids love the interaction. They sleep out in the open and live fairly primitively, so if you do want to take something let me know first and I'll update the current wishlist (mainly fruit, veg, rice, mossie nets and such like).

Finally! A volunteer place that is actually free!

I know that Paula (travelmonster) is looking for something like this.

Thanks for posting it.

Hey Dan,

I am heading to Cambodia at the end of June and will be there for 3 months. Do you have any idea what the weather is like then?

I am volunteering at an English teaching school and am travelling on my own, any tips you may have as an experienced traveller would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers,

Clare
