We ask all potential volunteers to carefully consider the requirements of our organisation before making an application to join our volunteer program.
Here at Friends of Koh Rong, we believe that volunteers can have a real and lasting positive impact on an organisation and the wider local community. Our team of volunteers work both locally and around the globe to ensure that our overheads are kept low, and our local team on the ground can focus on the important work of education and community development.
We understand that Koh Rong is an appealing place to volunteer, and receive many applications from potential volunteers. The harmful effects of ‘voluntourism’ are well documented, and we accept only skilled volunteers with professional or practical experience who can commit to a minimum period of time. Our on-site volunteers assist in building capacity for ongoing development within the organisation, by transferring their skills to our local staff, to create real, long-lasting change. We also enforce a strict Child Protection Policy, which must be adhered to by all staff and volunteers.
Successful volunteers at FoKR are enthusiastic individuals with skills, innovation and expertise who are willing to work directly with our staff to share, collaborate and empower local people.
We require all volunteers to commit to a minimum of two months, unless the volunteer can present a plan of short term work before coming to Koh Rong that management has agreed to. Volunteers are expected to cover their own food and accommodation costs.
