Questions & Answers
NicholasAge: 19-24MaleMadison, WisconsinUniversity of Wisconsin- MadisonUBELONG Volunteer in Cambodia02/11/2015How could this program be improved?
I would have liked to have a few resources for learning a bit of the language before arriving in Cambodia. We received some resources a couple of days after arriving (which were very helpful).

I believe the minimum 2 week commitment may be too short of a time to really adjust, settle in, and figure out how you can be of help. I wish there was some sort of set curriculum that could be followed by any volunteer so they could jump in at any time and know where the children were at in their learning. With so many volunteers coming through the school, I worry about how much progress is actually made.

Maybe try to see with the placements where the need is, so that the volunteers could be better prepared at the begining of their programm. If I already knew before coming what I was exceped to do, I could have brought so many games and stuff from home !
TuomasAge: 19-24MaleFinlandOtherUBELONG Microfinance in Cambodia10/03/2014How could this program be improved?
More detailed information on the actual project (like the history of organisation and information on its operation) would have been appreciated, so that learning could have started beforehand. However it is normal that the outflow of information from an organistaion in a developing country is patchy at best.
