Visit Sunrise in Cambodia

Donors and child sponsors are always welcome to visit Sunrise Cambodia. We love to take the opportunity to show how their support truly makes a difference to the lives of the people living in the Sunrise community. There are a number of ways to visit us:

  • You can apply to be a mentor in our skills-based program. We are looking for a very specific skill set. Please visit our Mentor in Cambodia page for more details on the opportunities we currently have available
  • Travel with Sunrise Cambodia for The Heart of Sunrise Tour 2017. The Heart of Sunrise Tour 2017 is your opportunity to experience Cambodia’s vibrant culture and see first-hand the difference your contribution is making towards community development in Cambodia. Please visit our The Heart of Sunrise Tour page for more details
  • Organise a visit independently and see some of Sunrise’s work at either Kandal or Siem Reap. Supplement your experience by setting up an Everyday Hero fundraising page and invite your friends and family to donate and support our work. You can then see the funds in action when you visit us
