Review

AJWS placed me as a volunteer with the Cambodia Women's Movement Organization (CWMO) in 2010. I worked in Phnom Penh for six months, helping CWMO develop a strategic and fundraising plan for their work supporting female garment factory workers. AJWS provided a great orientation for the volunteer cohort prior to volunteer time, which set our expectations well and prepared us for the challenges and joys of our upcoming experience. My colleagues at CWMO were immensely appreciative of my work with them, and I learned so much about Cambodian labor issues. I participated in meetings with other key organizations and traveled around the country with CWMO. My AJWS volunteer peers were all wonderful, thoughtful people. I have remained close with some of them upon my return to the U.S. I would highly recommend the AJWS Volunteer Corps program to anyone interested in making a meaningful impact abroad!
