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.
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.More Detail
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).More Detail
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.More Detail
We are currently in the planning stages of a Community Centre that will teach English and other skills to our families and other local villagers to broaden their horizons.More Detail
Cambodia is currently undergoing its worst drought in an estimated 70 years. VBC has been assisting Water on Wheels to deliver rice and water to rural villages.
We are currently collaborating with EcoSun and Solar 4 Cambodia to see about getting our warehouse (and maybe even the families we build for) set up using solar power!

We work with volunteers from around the globe to improve the living conditions of Cambodian families in need by providing them with safe, dry housing. We build and repair houses, wells and toilet facilities.
The Cambodian families you will work with are amongst the friendliest people in the world. Volunteering in Cambodia will leave a lasting memory of your visit to South East Asia.
We’re funded by donations, some local partners and volunteers who give up their time to come and build a home with us. You will work alongside other international volunteers, locals and the family receiving the house.
Building with us is a unique way to help people in need on the ground. You can make a difference to an entire family.
