Volunteer with Us
Here at SCD we welcome volunteers with open arms! Since we opened in 2006, more than 400 visitors and volunteers have come to spend time with the children at the SCD orphanage, and each has left us enriched from the experience.

We believe volunteers are an important and vital resource for SCD. They bring talent, teaching skills, English language, IT, administrative skills, sports, art and lots of fun. We thank them for their participation and support of our Family here at SCD. We are always more than happy to welcome new volunteers and our children love to meet new people from different backgrounds, practice their English and share their infectious smiles and laughter with everyone who comes to visit...so why not spend some time with us?

Orphanage Visits
Perhaps you wish to come to the SCD orphanage for a few hours during the day while travelling through Phnom Penh, we are always most happy to welcome you! You can tour the facility, meet some of our children (depending on the time of day and day of the week the children’s schedule varies) and share some of your time enjoying their happy company. The children are so eager to learn and would love to practice their English or learn some new words of your native language.

Volunteer Opportunities
Would you like to stay a little longer? Please do! We have simple guest accommodations for up to 15 people per night and invite you to feel at home. We currently have one school group from Maroochydore State High School in Australia, who visit yearly for two weeks, to teach English and interact with the children. We welcome and encourage student volunteer groups to visit, as it a wonderful time for our children and an invaluable enriching experience for the students.
As part of your stay, you can contribute to enriching the children’s lives in many ways; Help teach our English classes, get creative in the Handicrafts room, share the joy of reading in our library, Enjoy a game of soccer or Volleyball- get ready for a good game, our children are quite the volleyball players! If you have any specific skills such as IT/Computer skills, Medical knowledge, Languages, Handicrafts, Manual trades (Construction, Carpentry, Electrical, Agriculture ),Business Management, Beauty Practices (Hairdressing, Design), Administrative or financial management that would be valuable for you to share with the children or staff, we would be delighted to learn from you.
Though we do value and greatly appreciate visitors coming to SCD to spend time with the children and support our organization, it is important to remember that SCD is a Non-Profit Organization that tailors primarily to the care of the children who reside here and as such various conditions must be met by visitors to ensure firstly the safety of the children and secondly to ensure that no other possible issues impact their regular daily routines. You will find below a link for the rules and regulations as well as an Entry form for Volunteers visiting SCD. Please contact us for more information or to schedule your visit. The children and Staff are looking forward to seeing you soon!
