Why Being Volunteer at Sok Sabay ?

Volunteering is a great idea! Commit yourself, make yourself useful to others and put your skills to good use… Whether you are a student, retired, working or other, you are welcome to join the association. 

Being a volunteer is a very rewarding experience that will enhance your personal and professional career. During your volunteer experience, you will develop your skills and know-how!

Becoming a volunteer in Sok Sabay means supporting the cause of children in situations of abuse, exploitation and neglect. Your involvement will allow children to open up to others and you will give them the chance for a better future. 

First of all, a big thank you! To the children, the staff and Marie for sharing their daily lives with us. As soon as we arrived at the centre, we had the pleasure of discovering a soothing and infantile atmosphere: happy children with a smile on their lips (very important!). During our stay, we spent wonderful moments with each of them, around different activities, we became aware of the work done by the association Sok Sabay. We all have unforgettable memories, we hope to come back one day, but above all, keep in touch. We swore to bring them a lot, but in the end, they were the ones who brought the most: an incredible human experience! Thank you!

What Being a Volunteer
Means ?

Being a volunteer means giving your time to a cause that is dear to us, that of children in situations of abuse, exploitation and neglect for the Sok Sabay association. Being a volunteer means supporting the cause that is dear to us by getting involved with an organization such as an association or a foundation

This experience is unique and will allow you to discover the daily life of these people who have devoted themselves to a cause. It is a way of developing skills, of feeling useful in a different way, but above all, it is a way of discovering oneself and the world around us. Nothing is more rewarding than helping those who need it most.
