All prices are listed in US Dollars. The program fees reflect the costs ELI faces when setting up a program. We work hard to keep our costs as low as possible. ELI is a registered 501(c)3 non profit. US taxpayers may be able to deduct some or all of the program fees.

All meals are provided, but participants are free to eat at local restaurants or street vendors if they prefer. There is easy access to internet cafes and tourist areas through convenient local bus lines. Want to see the menu? We have the full volunteer menu available!

Notes and Helpful Links
Here is a handy tool to see what time it is in Cambodia: Time Conversion Tool. Be sure to pack for the Weather in Phnom Penh, and keep in mind that April tends to be the hottest month of the year. Participants need to visit a travel nurse before their arrival in Cambodia. For immunizations, we defer to the recommendations from the Center for Disease Control. Learn a few Basic Khmer (Cambodian) Phrases before you arrive, you will frequently encounter language barriers - it's best to be prepared. Lastly, pick up a guide book - The Lonely Planet series is a popular choice.
