We connect professional volunteers with meaningful projects in Cambodia

We encourage positive change by connecting organizations making a genuine difference, with skilled professionals looking for meaningful ways to volunteer and give back.

Who we are

We are a group of professionals, based in Siem Reap Cambodia, who are dedicated to igniting and supporting connections that will fuel organisations and communities to move forward.

We believe local people are the leaders of their own communities. Sustainable, long term impact is possible when those with the right skills are in the right place and where possible, they pass these skills onto locals.

Our mission

We bring together highly-skilled professionals across the globe, to take collaborative action and create positive, sustainable change.

Our hearts and minds are open, with honesty and transparency in all of our interactions and operational processes.

Learning

We believe that everyone is a learner and everyone is a teacher. We appreciate and value diversity in all its forms and aim to encourage this appreciation in the hearts and minds of those we collaborate with. Everyone ALWAYS has something to contribute AND something to discover.

“I love Cambodia and living, volunteering and working here has encompassed some of the biggest personal and professional learning opportunities of my life. Many volunteers have come and gone, however what will be truly beneficial for Cambodia’s development are specific, quality skills that are matched with local priorities and also shared to build the skill capacity of local staff. This is why I am excited to support the work of Professionals doing good.”

“The key for responsible, community-driven development is to build the capacity of local staff, with the transfer of skills and knowledge that will continue to flourish long after they are gone. I am so happy to be part of Professionals doing good –  an organization that strives to foster that here in Siem Reap.”

“Professionals doing good was able to match my needs and expertise and within a couple of month I found myself in Siem Reap.

Cambodia really let’s you discover more of yourself and working in a place like this gives you responsibility. You’re able to be involved in the issues and feel like you’re making an impact quickly”
