• Background

    ELIE and the Elephant Valley Project focus on welfare, conservation and education. Therefore to further promote this we have developed an Intern Program, enabling people from all over Cambodia and the world to join the project, contribute their time in a meaningful way and hopefully learn from the experience.

    The Intern Program is open to Khmer Nationals and International applicants.

  • Program Length and Intakes

    We have developed the intern program for 3 months. This time frame means that each placement has a decent amount of time to be able to do induction, training and then complete a specific project. We may be able to discuss a shorter time frame, please discuss this is on application.

    There are four intakes per year.

    January – March

    April – June

    July – September

    October – December

  • Cost

    We cannot offer a salary for the intern program, but the intern is not required to pay any sort of program fee. You are responsible for you own travel costs to get to Sen Monorom, Mondulkiri, Cambodia.

    At the current time we do not have any specific facilities for intern, but for the programs based mainly on-site at the sanctuary, we can offer food and possible accommodation while staying onsite depending on the season, this is confirmed at the time of application. Otherwise at the moment all interns will be required to stay in town, 12km from the sanctuary, at their own cost.  A room in town with electricity and Wifi can be sourced for $100 – $150 per month. The project vehicles then go out to the site each day. Food while in town is at your own cost.

    For international applicants – To stay in Cambodia for 3 months or more, you will need an ‘Ordinary Visa’, as this can be extended for 1 or 3 months (single entry) or 6 or 12 months (multiple entry). Not a Tourist Visa, as this only allows 30 days and can only be extended once for another month. This Ordinary Visa costs $35 on entry, and then either $72 for 3 Months, or $152 for 6 Months.

  • What To Do Next

    We have a set of listed project categories below that we have thought of that could benefit the organization and different projects. However if you are studying a specific subject, we are happy for you to propose a project idea and we can see if it fits with our resources and programs.
