Volunteer opportunity posted by: Don Bosco Foundation of Cambodia
Posted on: December 28, 2012
I am looking a professional administrator, accountant or expert in marketing and fundrising to support us at the Don Bosco Vocational Center in Kep, Cambodia.
The project began in October 2011 under my direction. It belongs to the Don Bosco Foundation of Cambodia and it is made to support technical formation to young people from the provinces of Kep, Kampot and Takeo, a rural region with a lack of professional centers for the growing youth population. It is also an area of great poverty, where young people find few opportunities and migrate to the biggest cities or abroad.
The project consists in the construction of the main technical schools: the female hostel, the male hostel, the social communication and journalism school, the secretariat school, the electrical school, the tailoring shop, the hotel school and the IT center.
In this moment we have 100 students in hotel skill, social communication, IT and electricity. It is estimated that by 2015 we are going to reach a number of 300 students.
It is also a children center with activities for children in the evenings like computers, English lessons, sport and there is a children park. The Don Bosco Kep Children Fund is an office to promote children from poverty to go back to school.
There is a staff of 20 persons, mostly teachers. We have also volunteers coming from different organizations or independent.

Please send me an email to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org with your CV included and some references (this is an educational work, so you will see with children and young people, so we need to be sure).

You must know that Cambodia is a tropical country. Our area is rather safe of tropical deceases, though I advice to take proper vacination in your country. English language is advisible, but if you don't speak English, please do not hesitate to apply. We can look for ways to break the language barrier.
