This is an amazing opportunity to explore and experience Cambodia. You will assist with the Restore One village projects, which include teaching and building of schools and homes, as well as connect with the wonderful Khmer people. Most team trips are based on a 2-week schedule. During this time you will balance the hard work with fun times, including an exceptional tourist visit to the famous Angkor Wat temples in Siem Reap.
Generally their teams run for 2 weeks. You can either join an existing team or make one of your own if you have more than 10 people coming.
The costs are as follows:
1) Flights and travel insurance which you purchase (arrive in Phnom Penh and leave from Siem Reap)
2) AUS$1000 per person donated to Restore One for the projects that you will do on the ground (this is tax deductible)
3) US$900 cash given on arrival for food, travel and accommodation on the ground (not tax deductible)
4) US$30 Visa on arrival at Phnom Penh airport
Before coming on trip Restore One requires the following things:
A) Sign and email the volunteer agreement to volunteer coordinator
B) Provide a working with children clearance that is less than 2 years old
C) Email flight schedule, passport photocopy and travel insurance to volunteer coordinator
