Mission Statement

Volunteer Building Cambodia (VBC) aims to improve the living conditions of families in need in rural areas by providing them with wells, toilets and safe, dry housing.

OUR MAIN PROJECTS

House Building Project

Housing conditions for many Cambodian people are less than ideal. Many structures are unsafe and unsanitary and people are often displaced and forced into squatting.

Toilet Building Project

Cambodia has the lowest sanitation coverage in the region. A large majority of people do not have access to adequate sanitation (as high as 85% in rural areas).

It is estimated that around 80% of Cambodian people live in the countryside where over 50% do not have access to clean drinking water and waterborne diseases are rife.
