THE AMBASSADOR POSITION

Local Community Ambassadors are volunteers who champion the cause in their local community. 

Ambassadors are trained in Siem Reap, Cambodia to speak from experience and first-hand knowledge about traveling to Asia, the people, living conditions and the work we do.

Ambassadors help to organize fundraising events and recruit volunteer groups (ages 16+).

Ambassadors have the opportunity to accompany groups of volunteers to Cambodia at highly reduced rates.

Ambassadors commit a few hours per week to the cause. Much of our networking and recruitment is done through presentations at service clubs, on the Internet, facebook, etc.

Lasts for years!

Going about villages one sees sponsorship signs dating back to 2006, still in place.

Many latrines serving mid-size families are now 10-years old. When time comes to replace them, there a whole new generation of earners in the family. It has served its purpose.

Poor families sometimes complain that their 10 year-old well dried up. 95% of the time, the problem is solved with information, $5 in parts and $10 in labour to replace a normal-wear part in the pump--and there you go, Bona's your uncle. $15 for another 10 years of safe water.
