Congratulations on taking the step to find out more information about joining the Hair Aid Inc. Cambodia Project in February 2019!
We’d love to have you join us, we are expecting to have 20 on the team! We have some of the same volunteers that came on the last project returning – which just shows just how much they appreciate what we do and the value we create!
Here's the low down on the project
Dates: Project runs from 25th February – 28th February 2019. You will need to be in Cambodia by Sunday 24th February 2019, for team training and cultural inductions. You can leave after Friday 7pm 29th February 2019. Flights can be extended if you want to stay longer. I’m advising that if you choose to fly the Friday night, make it a late flight as you won’t want to miss the graduation celebrations Friday and you need to leave time to get to the airport as well through traffic.
Where: Training locations will be in and around Phnom Penh, within an approximate daily taxi drive of 30 – 40 mins from our accommodation.
Who: Volunteer hairdressers and beauticians and supporters, teaching women in critical poverty how to cut hair and do manicure/pedicures. All volunteers are housed in the same accommodation. Volunteers will be in teams of 2-4 and will travel to locations daily as a group.
Fundraising: Hair Aid Inc. is a registered charity with tax deductible status. Fundraising activities can be conducted to raise the costs of the project. All types of fundraising can occur from crowdfunding, to events, to raffles! I can send you an overview of what I do if required.
What is included: Accommodation, resource purchases, ground transport, project insurance, team tshirts & cap/hat, administration and logistics costs (project facilitation and management, graduation certificates, location costs, etc).
What is not covered: Return flights, personal medical insurance (must have), food, drink/s, personal items, travel to/from airports at home town.
Please let me know if there’s any further information you require – happy to have a phone chat!
There is an Induction Trip to Cambodia which occurs the week before this project! Come 4 days earlier and be part of the Cambodia Induction Trip
An additional $AUD1,800 will provide you a place on the Hair Aid Project teaching previous trainees advanced haircutting skills. You will be working with ladies rescued from the sex trade, prostitution, drug lords, gangs and child pornography. Over four days we will go into orphanages to offer free haircuts, visit sewing rooms where physically challenged workers create piecework, visit with school children, be part of a monk blessing, and experience the real Cambodia.
