The Cambodia Rugby Project was set up to help the underprivileged country of Cambodia learn about Rugby. Through this program focused on Rugby, it is used as a tool for Children and Adults alike develop as Rugby player. Our aims is to increase sporting participation and the skills which are labeled within ‘sports development’. Sports of all variety are rather viewed as a tool or mechanism to create social change.
If you volunteer as a rugby coach in Cambodia, you’ll work in Phnom Phen, the capital and biggest city in Cambodia. Phnom Penh is located in the south-central region of Cambodia, and is fully surrounded by the Kandal Province. The municipality is situated on the banks of the Tonlé Sap, Mekong, and Bassac rivers.
You will work at various primary schools in and around Phnom Phen. Many schools in Cambodia have limited resources like sporting facilities, equipment, and are often understaffed. You’ll be transported by Tuk Tuk between the schools. We organise and cover the cost of this transport.
AIRPORT PICKUP, FLIGHTS AND VISAS When you arrive at Phnom Phen airport, a member of CFR staff will be there to meet you.
You will work Monday to Friday, and your schedule varies depending on which organisation you’re working with. You’ll be transported by Tuk Tuk between the schools. CFR organises and covers the cost of this transport. On your first day, we’ll accompany you to your placement to show you how it works.
On Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday afternoons, you work with the academy at a single location. You will work at a rugby clinic from about 7pm to about 8pm.
During your free time, we encourage you to explore! Phnom Phen is a thriving city with many things to do.
There are idyllic beaches where you can swim, snorkel, and surf that you can do over the weekend.
