Volunteering Solutions Cambodia Reviews
I definitely came home with much more love than I had to give through the amazing locals who were ever so friendly and welcoming..
The kids there are enthusiastic and very smart. They are willing to express themselves and show great respect to us as teachers. .
I lived in a family and enjoyed that a lot. I was satisfied with the meals. The local coordinator was an experienced and friendly person. .
Accommodation and meals were fantastic! Better than my imagination. The in-country staff were really helpful and I really appreciate them. .
It was great value, the meals and accommodation were excellent for the price. There is great need for English education in Cambodia so our efforts were appreciated by locals..
I liked my program placement. I felt like even though I only stayed for eight weeks, I was able to feel like my presence was very much appreciated and helpful. .
I very much enjoyed my program placement. The staff at the placement made me feel very welcome and the children were also a joy to teach. .
The whole culture of the country was amazing! The family I stayed with were very welcoming and allowed me to become more immersed in the culture and the children in the orphanage will always hold a special place in my heart. I never thought I would feel so loved and be able to return it so unconditi.
The placement was very organized and the children and staff were very friendly and accommodating. The children were very keen to learn which made for a fulfilling experience..
It was a unique experience to teach but I loved playing with the kids too ! The river cruise was lovely and meeting the other volunteers was great..
Beautiful kids. Very hard to say good bye ! Very appreciative. We are very happy with the placement..
Really enjoyed working in the Orphanage I would have liked to have more time but we could only manage a few weeks. Was more than we expected and was tough/sad leaving at the end. Orphanage works really well, it seems very well organized and all the staff were admirable..
I made some great new friends with other volunteers, spend weekends exploring other areas in Cambodia and made awesome memories making popcorn and having slumber parties with 85 really inspired children..
My coordinator was very helpful and constantly checking in to make sure everything was alright as well as working to make sure that I was having a pleasant experience. I would recommend the Cambodia program.It was wonderful.There are many days back home in the United States when I wish I was in Camb.
I could not have done this without the help from the Volunteering Solutions team. What I really appreciated was how flexible they were with me - especially seeing as I planned it at the last minute..
There were no problems with the arrival and airport pick up. The Orphanage i was placed to was very well organized with many teachers and other volunteers and my impression was that they don't need any additional help..
The house was very nice and had everything that I needed. The family were wonderful and very accommodating. The children were amazing and so happy all the time. I really enjoyed my month here and will really miss everyone..
