“Hands down the best NGO in Cambodia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

I was lucky enough to have an extended stay volunteering at New Hope Cambodia during my 8 months in Siem Reap. There is so much bad press about poorly run NGO's that I would never commit to one without thorough research. I was blessed to visit them during a tour of Asia, given a tour of the complex, school, clinic, Outreach and restaurant. It was this open and honest tour that convinced me to return. The staff are warm, caring and genuine. The students are so eager to learn. I felt lucky to be given this opportunity and it has enriched my life.
I can recommend New Hope Cambodia as a Genuine and trusted NGO worth visiting.
They also have a tour department so you can get your volunteering in through the week and then have your tours planned out for the weekend with your new friends.

“Best experience of a life time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2013

My item in Cambodia was incredible. New Hope is so well run and organised, it makes being a volunteer stress free and easy, making it all the more rewarding. The staff always have something positive to say to you, and even if teaching isn't your thing, spending everyday with such an awesome group of kids makes every second worth it. New hope gave me loads of opportunities to see Cambodia and I never felt pressured to spend all day at school. The people you meet both volunteers and Cambodians will have a lasting impact on your life! Can't wait to come back and do it all again!

“Inspiring with a warm welcome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

This was my first time volunteering (nurse) at New Hope Cambodia.

If you are looking for a really inspiring and well run organisation to volunteer with, this is for you.

There is a school aspect, a health clinic, restaurant, and an 'outreach' aspect, where teams go out and assess the needs of poorer communities. Volunteers are welcome in many different roles.

You will be warmly welcomed, and feel very safe.

What an amazing organisation, doing amazing work. Highly recommended!!!!

“Awesome volunteering experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

I volunteered here for 2 weeks, teaching English.
It was probably the most valuable 2 weeks of my life. This is an awesome organization to work with, and the restaurant has the most delicious cocktails and local food!
The kids are great fun, and are always excited to meet new volunteers or visitors.
Definitely volunteer at New Hope if you are trying to find an NGO in Cambodia! Or pop by and visit the restaurant on the way to Angkor Wat.
