RESPONSIBLE CHARITY / VOLUNTEERING

It is always confronting for travellers to see children living in poverty overseas. Whilst it is important that the international community works to prevent child exploitation and neglect, volunteers should always ensure that they are contributing in an ethical and meaningful way. Volunteers considering short term placements with children, particularly in orphanages, need to carefully think about the potential long term impact they may have on children in need of stability, structure and care.

Working directly with children in communities and orphanages may not be the most effective way to provide sustainable assistance. Volunteers should first consider donating to or working on projects that aim to develop and strengthen local communities, to create longer term alternatives for children living in poverty.

 

One should thoroughly research any organisation offering opportunities to volunteer with children, particularly in orphanages. In some circumstances, these organisations have removed children from adequate family care in order to profit from donations from abroad. There are also reports of unscrupulous organisations deliberately housing children in poor conditions to attract ongoing financial support from volunteers. Volunteers at these organisations may unknowingly contribute towards child exploitation. Consider these risk before volunteering with children. 

STREET CHILDREN 

Cambodia has had a very difficult history in recent times, and there are many families that struggle to make ends meet. Quite a few children are not given the opportunity to receive an education, as parents send them to work at very young ages to help support the family members. As can be expected in an area with such high tourism, quite a few end up selling wares near tourist sites or resorting to begging for money. The sad reality is that while they may work very long hours, the goods you purchase from these children typically do not support furthering their education or quality of life.
