Angkor Charity Organization needs good, high-quality volunteers, able and willing to go the extra mile in a demanding environment. But it doesn’t need many.This is largely because, whenever a particular skill set is needed or task required, ACO prefers to create local jobs. ACO doesn’t use short-term volunteers either. Too many ACO children have had too much turbulence in their lives, so we do our best to minimize that as much as possible. A succession of new faces just isn’t good for them so, save in exceptional circumstances, we ask our volunteers to commit to 2 months or more.
Likewise, because ACO’s own resources are also all directed at the children, the programs and the projects, there isn’t any spare to subsidize volunteers, so while ACO will be delighted to give all the help it can, we need anyone who wants to come and work with us to be fully self-sustaining in terms of travel, accommodation and living arrangements. Flexibility, adaptability, a sense of perspective and a sense of humor will also be required!
Perhaps most importantly, the volunteer has to offer skills and abilities that fit a specific ACO need. To date, ACO has most needed as follow;
- Qualified healthcare/medical personnel - particularly in pediatric care, midwives and pre-and post-natal specialists, dentists and nurses…etc. (Future Opportunity).
- Qualified education personnel–examples include experienced ESL teachers, art-teachers, pedagogical specialists, human rights and law educators, Math and finance teachers, small business management experts, Computer teacher, leadership training specialists and media studies personnel and other expert personnel...etc. (Present Opportunity).
- Experienced grant writers & reporters.
