Leeds, United Kingdom (PressExposure) October 07, 2008 -- Today i-to-i Meaningful Travel announces a new volunteer vacation in Cambodia: âHelp Teach and Care for Childrenâ. This intriguing country may be widely neglected by the mainstream tourists, but volunteer travel in Cambodia is increasingly popular amongst those in the know.
Phnom Penh has become a melting pot of cultures every bit as diverse as the architecture that cram its busy streets. Amongst the cafes, restaurants and street traders though, volunteer vacationers will glimpse the problems of the past in the shape of biting poverty and large numbers of street children. i-to-iâs partner projects in Cambodia help the country on its journey from the dark past to a bright future by broadening the horizons of underprivileged youngsters through education, mentoring and coaching in the cityâs many childrenâs homes.
In Phnom Penh i-to-i now works with a number of children's homes where volunteer vacationers are needed to improve the conditions and opportunities of Cambodian street children and orphans. The aim of these children's homes is to provide a safe shelter, education and vocational training. The children are cared for with clothing, medical care and three meals per day.
By working at these projects travelers on a volunteer vacation in Cambodia will be in a position to improve the education of the students and provide them with a role model and coach. Acquiring language and computer skills can broaden the students' horizons and give them access to far better employment opportunities in the future.
The new volunteer vacation âHelp Teach and Care for Children in Cambodiaâ has a minimum duration of 3 weeks and costs $1190, including accommodation, meals and in country support. i-to-i also offers volunteer vacations in countries like Cambodia, Thailand, Argentina, Kenya, Tanzania, Peru, India, Nepal and China.
