Volunteers are going to participate in different activities such as teaching English and computer for DCC students, organize sport activities with teenagers, and participate in social development and environmental protection with local people. Beside, volunteers will also have opportunity to learn from local community through community challenge & mapping and learn from other volunteers through sharing sessions and free time activities organize by camp leader during the camp.

Volunteer will stay together at a hosting family inside the village. Food will be prepared by hosting family but they will be asked to serve, clean, and wash dishes by yourself. three meals per day will be provided with the basic Cambodian dishes.

There are plenty of tourist attraction sites located in or nearby Battambang province for example: Phnom Sampov, Prasat Phnom Banan, Phnom Yat, and more.. Volunteer can explore by themselves during their free day. DCC is not far from Battambang city therefore, beside your free day touring you can also have fun by interacting with local people, teenagers and children during your free time by organizing different activities so bring your flexibility and creativity.

Volunteers will have a weekend off to explore some tourist spots around the project site or places in Battambang province. We will not arrange any tour for you therefore, you will need to manage it by yourself or with other volunteers of where you would like to spend the weekend. There are some interesting options for you to explore. The project coordinator can introduce you to some attractions but still, the decision is yours and He/she also can help to arrange the transportation for you as well if you needed.

Development for Cambodian Children (DCC) is a community based organization which has been working to provide local children and teenagers English competency, computer skill, and engage them in community development since 2002. DCC believes that through voluntary service, we will be able to create a better future for our local children and teenagers while helping local people to protect and preserve their protect forest in the area of their management. Above activities will also provide you a lots of exciting experience and life learning for yourself as well.

What do we expect from you?
- Volunteers read and understood this information. Stay the entire length of project.
- Volunteers are aware about the concept of international voluntary service which is not a cheap way of spending your holiday but a voluntary activity that need your high motivation and willing to achieve a certain goal together with team.
- Realize that living condition in Cambodia is much difference from your home country (no warm water, no air-conditioning, not easy to access to international phone and internet, no soft beds, and the food is also differences etc). Volunteers should understand about the aims of project and realize that learning about Cambodian way and social contact is more important than manual work.
- Volunteers are open minded, leave prejudice behind and show initiative.
- Volunteers should understand the situation of spending time with local people who do not speak English very well.
- Volunteers should try the effort in trying to communicate in basic Khmer language or other way of communicating (work, pictures, gestures, etc). If you will try, you will be amazed how quick you will learn basic Khmer language.
- Do not complain if any activities do not happen as planned. It is depending on condition and situation. So, bring some flexibilities and you will stay relax and avoid a lot of stress and frustration for yourself.

what to bring?
- Positive energy to work and live the local lifestyle
- Idea for energizing games and activities during you free time
- Knowledge, education, and information about your country so that you can share with other participants
- Sunscreen: It would be helpful for outside activities and traveling since the Cambodia sun is brutal. - Hand sanitizer: always useful just in case you can’t wash your hands at a particular moment
- Clothes: Cambodia is hot all year round, even in rainy season – the heat and the humidity combine to make most people sweat a lot.
- Comfortable clothes and shoes for daily and activities, and a set smart clothes. Covering up in a hot climate might sound mad, but it’s great protection against the sun.
- Some personal medicine such as allergy, mosquito repellent, and other emergencies medicine though we will provide first aids for basic condition.
- Traditional cloth that you might want to wear in the international night
- Food and ingredients for international dinner and snack so that you can share with local  people.
