Volunteer Globally

“Volunteer Globally” was implemented as a pilot program, offering UAE residents 1-week volunteer opportunities in Cambodia. 50 volunteers from the UAE worked alongside the community and local contractors in Cambodia to construct schools, with mothers and children helping volunteers contribute to improving the learning environment for the children in the village.

In the end, volunteers helped build three schools consisting of a total of 15 classrooms, which provided 700 Cambodian children access to primary education. The schools were constructed in Chanleas Dai commune in the province of Siem Reap, among the poorest in Cambodia where both dropout and child labor rates are extremely high.
