Care for Cambodia is committed to employing locals as much as possible. The employment and training of those in need of employment is a valuable part of our mission. Foreign input is valued through short and long term volunteers and foreign staff are present to mentor, inspire and enable our local workers. This will help ensure sustainability so that Care for Cambodia can carry on, long after the foreign workers have gone home.
