Do you manage or work for a social impact organization based or operating in Cambodia? Do you need help identifying and recruiting skilled volunteers to assist with your development efforts or day-to-day operations? Professionals doing good can help!
We connect skilled professionals with meaningful projects for maximum impact
Professionals doing good is dedicated to igniting and supporting relationships that move organizations and communities forward. We work with skilled professionals from around the world who are looking for meaningful ways to give back. We match them with carefully vetted non for profits, social enterprises and socially conscious businesses in Cambodia that are committed to making a sustainable impact.
By focusing on skills transfer and capacity building, we help organizations implement innovative solutions to address key development challenges so they can continue making a difference long after the volunteer assignment is over.
Cambodia suffers from a shortage of skilled, qualified workers. While international volunteering is big business here, many initiatives fall short of expectations. Volunteer skills are often insufficient, poorly matched to the needs of the host organization, or not used effectively to develop the skills of local people.
At Professionals doing good, we take a different approach. We see professional volunteers as a great untapped resource and an effective way to assist local organizations with capacity building or long-term needs.
We believe that when you select and scope a project carefully, secure the right professional for the job, and manage the work effectively, the impact of these volunteer efforts can be far reaching.
Professional volunteers bring many benefits
- Strong work ethic and motivation
- Operational immediately with little or no training
- Industry expertise and knowledge of the latest techniques and best practices from their country
- Ability to complete complex or critical work projects
- Willingness to transfer skills to local staff
- Financial self-sustainability
