WHY MATESABROAD

The Matesabroad team strongly believe that there are many generous people who want the opportunity to be hands on and make a difference. However the barriers of time or cost prevent many from participation. We aim to provide you with the opportunity to visit Cambodia, truly immerse yourself in the culture, have the privilege of making a significant contribution to the lives of others and enrich your own with a life changing experience

  • Matesabroad is a registered Australian charity.
  • We are a non-religious and non-political organisation
  • We work together with you to make sure you have a complete, authentic, well organised and enriching experience.
  • If you join us you will be personally welcomed and supported 24/7 by a highly effective Australian team with a proven track record.
  • 100% of all donated funds are spent in Cambodia. Your contributions go to where they are most needed.
  • You will not be assigned to work with an unrelated third party charity when you arrive in Cambodia. You apply to us, you stay with us.
  • Our programmes in Cambodia are managed by Cambodians.
  • You will not be left with strangers. You will be working with our Cambodian colleagues. They in turn will welcome, support and assist you as part of our extended Matesabroad family.
  • We promote local management responsibility and ownership across all our programmes.
  • We assist each community in which we work to take ownership of their programs and ultimately become self-sufficient.
