Volunteer Build a Water Well


7 day(s) - 6 night(s), building a Water Well for the villagers

You can raise funds for our water well project. Each well costs $330. We need volunteers to help them dig the wells for the poor families. Our wells are made from digging with a concrete base at the surface. Volunteers assist them in digging the well around 7 to 10 meters deep and then drop the well materials inside the hole. Volunteers will concrete it with cement base at the surface and then cover it on the well top to prevent pollution. Our local builders and volunteer coordinators look after you every step of the way and show you how to do it. Volunteers normally work from Monday to Friday to build each well and help local builders.

Meals and Food for Volunteers

Volunteers are usually provided daily breakfast at a local restaurant and your homestay accommodation while you are building the water wells in the village, but you will have to pay for your lunch and dinner. Breakfast typically consists of toast, fruit, and eggs, cereal accompanied with milk, tea or coffee. We recommend budgeting between $5-$6 per day to purchase lunch and dinner. If you have specific dietary requirements, our local team can customize your meal.

Volunteer Fees and Schedule

$450 USD donation per person for the project. This includes supplies, airport pickup and transfer, home stay and guesthouse fees, fresh drinking water, and transportation while you are building a water well in Cambodia for one week.

Day 1: You have arrived in Siem Reap

When you arrive we will pick you up at the airport and take you strait to your hotel. The rest of the day you are free to relax and explore exciting Siem Reap. In the evening you can head down to Pub Street or the Night Market where you will find food and shopping.


Day 2: Start to build the well


After your breakfast at 7:00 am, we will pick you up from your hotel head to the countryside at the building site. You will be introduced to the family and our builder at the building site. Volunteers will start to dig the hole for the well from 4 to 5 meters deep and our builder tells you about the size and how you need do dig it. We will enjoy our lunch and when we finish around 4:00 pm we will take you back to your homestay in the village.


Day 3: Continue to dig the well

 

We will pick you up from your homestay at 7:00 am after your breakfast. At the building site volunteers will continue to dig a well from 5 to 7 meters deep with local builders together until it has water from underground. This is an exciting day because you will see your well start to have clean water from underground. We will enjoy our lunch and around 4:00 pm we will take you back to your homestay.


Day 4: Test the water from the well by using Arsenic Test Kit

 

We will pick you up from your homestay at 7:00 am after your breakfast. You will continue to dig a well from 7 to 10 meters deep with local builders until it has a lot of water from underground and this water can supply from 5 to 10 families in the village.

This is the day that we do the test for Arsenic from the well to ensure water quality before the family will drink water or use it. We will know the result from the Arsenic Test Kit when we test it in 30 minutes. We enjoy our lunch at a local restaurant. We finish by 4:00 pm and then take you back to your homestay.


Day 5: Cement concrete the well

 

We will pick you up from your homestay at 7:00am after your breakfast. Volunteers will prepare the well materials with local builders to drop it inside the hole you dig and you will concrete it with cement base at the surface and then you will cover it on the well top to protect pollution. We will enjoy our lunch and finish by 4:00pm. Then we will take you back to your homestay.


Day 6: The final day to put up the signboard of the well


We will pick you up from your homestay at 7:00am after your breakfast. This is the final day that families are educated about well maintenance and ensuring that sanitary requirements are met at all times. Volunteers are welcome to join the family and villagers in the explanation, our team can explain what is happening and monitoring the well construction to ensure the contractor has provided a quality well.
