Personal Info

A few words from Rick

Hi, I’m Rick and since 2011 I have been Volunteering in Cambodia 6 months out of each year to help struggling families.

Being a qualified builder by trade has allowed me to provide much needed assistance to Cambodian families and entire villages through the construction and repair of homes, water wells, sanitary/septic systems while also providing maintenance for schools and assisting with medical and education expenses.

I do this using my own money well as money I have raised while working in Australia and through this website, my friends, GoFundMe and my Facebook page.  All money that is raised goes directly to the people in need, there are no administration costs, no fundraising costs and no management fees. If you give a dollar, they get a dollar!

Its amazing how much help even a small amount of money can contribute to these people’s self sufficiency.

So, Tell me about your volunteering in Cambodia…

Ricks projects in Cambodia is an initiative created and facilitated by Rick Garson.

He promotes and supports self sustaining projects for individual families and whole villages who live in poverty stricken areas where the living conditions are very poor, often without shelter from the elements, which poses many health issues for them, considering they endure an extreme wet season for six months of the year.

Another major and wide spread difficulty for them is safety and security as most homes are without a door that locks and are built from fire hazardous materials, such as deteriorated palm leaves.

Rick employees all local Khmer people for the construction and all manual work carried out throughout the projects. This greatly assists them financially while instilling a sense of pride and self empowerment.
