Our Hands-Across-the-World volunteers are a selected group of professionals who pride themselves in contributing to HATW’s mission to influence Cambodia’s education system. Our opportunities are available for someone who seeks to volunteer for a not-for-profit organisation with strong ethical standards and high integrity.  You will be privileged to see your contribution clearly making an impact since the HATW group is a very small and closely knit team.


The success of the Organisation’s reputation and ability to achieve its vision of “sustainability” rests on the cultivation of trust, confidentiality, and effective communication. HATW is an Australia-based not-for-profit organisation dedicated to tackling human trafficking, sexual exploitation, and human slave labour. HATW aims to achieve this through education. We believe education is the great equalizer and the key to preventing these atrocities. It also provides opportunities by empowering people to create a brighter future for the whole community.
