The decision to volunteer at Feeding Dreams in Siem Reap was without doubt one of the best decisions I have made. I spent four weeks as a teacher’s assistant helping a local teacher with English and maths. The experience had a profound effect on me. I got to see firsthand the major impact an on the ground NGO has on the lives of not only the children it educates and feeds, but also the families in the surrounding area.
The Feeding Dreams team are a fantastic group of dedicated individuals. The support given to the volunteers is great and there is always someone to help out if any problems arise. There were opportunities provided to sight see and everything was tailored to the individual group requirements. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Feeding Dreams to anyone wanting to volunteer for even just a week. The support you get is amazing, the experience is incredible and even in such a short time you do make a positive impact on the lives of some pretty special Khmer people.”

Our journey was exceptional - the children phenomenal (they need your time), the staff awe inspiring - the experience gave us a grounding - a passion, a new love and a clear change in thinking. If you want to give something back, for us, Feeding Dreams, we can't recommend it enough - go there, give yourself, do it and you will love all that it brings to you!

Having visited 3 times in 2013 as a volunteer, I am pleased to say I feel that FDC is my second home. Kerry, Kenneth Blaed and the entire staff make you feel totally welcome and at ease. The crew at FDC have a common goal; to give dignity to the poor of Siem Reap. There are huge smiles all round as Khmer and Nationals alike work in many ways to help improve the lot of these unfortunate people. The respect which all people associated with FDC exhibit is a credit to the executive.
The school students I have taken there to work have all stated that they want to go back and do more, having seen they feel responsible. Everyone is accommodated at FDC, young, old, skilled and unskilled. To me this is the most welcoming friendly and personal NGO that I have worked with. I would highly recommend to anyone the uplifting experience of working with a true bunch of heroes. I can't wait to be back there again in January 2014.
