People from all over the world are helping Cambodia recover from the atrocities of the Khmer Rouge. UNSUNG HEROES CAMBODIA: People and Projects Making a Difference is a collection of 60 short stories that celebrates these volunteers – providing inspiration and practical tips for aspiring do-gooders.  Ethical considerations and complex issues are raised in addition to providing direct links to projects.

From the brief overview of the history of the country beginning 802 AD with Jayavarman II establishing the Kingdom of Angkor through to the Khmer Rouge leaders arrested and charged with murder in 2008-2010 you will quickly gain some insight into this ancient civilization. The book’s stories do not dwell on that past, but are framed to add depth to the ongoing history that is being made today as Cambodia recovers and reinvents itself for the future.

Stories cover a wide range of projects – from large multinational involvement to single person start-ups – helping with basic human rights (providing food, shelter, water), education, healthcare, protecting human rights, protecting the environment and wildlife, developing sustainable businesses, reviving the arts and culture and more.

While inspirational, they also reveal the truth about NGOs: what works, what doesn’t, and some unique insights into ‘voluntourism’ – the exponential growth in Travel – that translate to every country.

The Volunteer Guide provides valuable information that every volunteer should know BEFORE you go including how to identify a ‘good’ NGO, pitfalls to be aware of and how innocent good intentions could be causing harm to the very people you are wanting to help. This is an invaluable resource for travellers with direct links to over 43 fascinating projects for you to quickly find out what they need help with today.
