Our Achievements

Since 2006: Globalteer has placed over 4,000 volunteers at selected community and wildlife projects in SE Asia and South America, and invested almost GBP £4 million (USD $5.1m) in achieving our charitable objectives. Below are just a few of the milestones in our short but exciting history.

  • In 2007: Globalteer founded the Grace House Community Centre near Siem Reap, which now offers free education to more than 250 underprivileged children in three rural villages.From humble beginnings Grace House, now managed independently has grown into a well-respected, holistic community project and model for many new NGOs.
  • In 2009: Globalteer launched its Siem Reap Junior Soccer League in Siem Reap, Cambodia, with 18 teams from 10 charity projects. It now has over 700 players from more than 50 teams in over 24 organisations and schools.
  • In 2010: Globalteer set up the Picaflor House Community Project in a small village near Cusco in Peru where up to 60 children a day receive free supplementary education and organised fun activities in a safe haven.
  • In 2012: Globalteer formed its first ever Malaysian project partnership with a marine and turtle conservation project in Borneo, bringing our total number of wildlife and conservation partner projects to seven.
  • Globalteer now works with six community projects in the Siem Reap area of Cambodia, which between them offer free supplementary education and shelter to over 1,000 underprivileged children, and bring clean drinking water to thousands of villagers.
  • In 2012: Globalteer added daily football and volleyball coaching to the weekend programme, bringing the number of children benefitting from the sports programme to over 1,000.
  • 2012 also saw the launch of the first ever girls’ soccer league, and a young adult training programme which aims to teach selected youngsters to be professional soccer referees and coaches.
  • In addition, Globalteer has undertaken a number of ad hoc activities to answer the needs of the communities with whom we work, including accounting, marketing and child protection advice.
  • In 2012: Globalteer arranged for a UK-trained intensive care nurse to run first aid training for 135 Khmer and western staff from over 20 NGOs and schools in and around Siem Reap.
  • In 2013: Globalteer took on the management of Helping Hands Cambodia. The project runs a school for 230 students, provides breakfast to 100 children attending the school, provides university scholarships and provides argricultural training to the local community.
  • In 2013: Following five months of work with two UK teachers and various partner projects, Globalteer produced a bespoke teaching handbook for volunteers assisting English teachers in the developing world.
  • In 2016 and 2017: Globalteer worked with a group of qualified UK teachers to train 160 Cambodian school teachers.
