United Nations Volunteers in Cambodia

UNV in Cambodia in the field
Volunteerism benefits both society at large and the individual volunteer by strengthening trust, solidarity and reciprocity among citizens, and by purposefully creating opportunities for participation.

The United Nations Volunteers (UNV) programme is the UN organization that contributes to peace and development through volunteerism worldwide. Volunteerism is a powerful means of engaging people in tackling development challenges, and it can transform the pace and nature of development. Volunteerism benefits both society at large and the individual volunteer by strengthening trust, solidarity and reciprocity among citizens, and by purposefully creating opportunities for participation.

UNV contributes to peace and development by advocating for recognition of volunteers, working with partners to integrate volunteerism into development programming, and mobilizing an increasing number and diversity of volunteers, including experienced UNV volunteers, throughout the world.

UN Volunteers in Cambodia

The first UN Volunteers arrived in Cambodia in 1991 and UNV opened an office in Cambodia soon after the establishment of the United Nations Transitional Authority in Cambodia (UNTAC) in 1992. Since 1991 over 1,463 UN Volunteers served in Cambodia in different sectors with almost all UN agencies, NGOs as well as with some Government bodies. During this period over 93 Cambodians served as International UN Volunteers with different UN missions and programmes overseas.

UNV actively promotes cooperation among volunteering organizations and is a founding member of VolCam, network connecting international and local Volunteer service agencies and volunteer involving organizations in Cambodia.

See the UN Volunteers in Cambodia website to find out more about volunteering activities and opportunities, latest news and how to become national, international or online volunteer.
