Brutal Khmer Rogue regime in 70`s in Cambodia contributed to massive extermination intelligentsia thereby completely destroyed education in this country,
At the present seems everything back to normal a large number opened schools increased, number of new opening schools still increasing.
Unfortunately many of them do not providing appropriate progression to gain better start in life for many children. Problem mainly involve all disable children such as children witch ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) these children are very sensitive, shy , have problems in certain areas especially the ability to communicate and relate to others. But they may have unusually developed skills. In this point they may test higher perhaps even in the average or above average range.
The other group children are Sub-Normal children (children with intellectual disabilities) less ability than a normal children of their age.
Teachers, parents and Community do not have any knowledge about these disorders, schools are not properly equipped. Teachers are not appropriate trained in this matter.
These children are rejected from local Community, forgotten and abandoned are isolated stay at home left without chance for any education.
We are pleased to inform that we are beginning work around new project, our integration model of education means that the all pupils are welcome, all pupils learn together and participate together with same benefits:
develop individual strengths and gifts (ASD children);
work an individual goals with individual program (Sub -Normal children/ ASD);
involve their parents in their education;
develop friendship with their own individual needs and abilities;
Essence of a matter our activity is providing trainings for local teaching staff as a complements to their current knowledge (education).
Our class teaching:
respect to the others,
Problems we are struggling with:
we need qualified staff (pedagogues, speech therapists, psychologists ) quality of education is very poor especially on the province;
lack of basic classroom equipment, such as teaching aid;
communication between teacher-local community-parents-school does not exist, same as their participation and involvement in daily schools life;
lack of activities such us; art class, dance class, music class, which help to develop pupils skills and interests, most of children do not know what is this : crayons, crepe paper, oil or acrylic paint;
mixed classes age 4-12 frequently 50 pupils in classroom make them overloaded, obstructive to manage and follow by the lesson plan. Children age of 4 required different teaching technique than children in the age 8-10, in this instance teachers are not able to dedicate equal attention for all pupils,
We are building CLASS THAT IS TEACHING
The mine headquarters of our project is ASEAN International English School () with branches in two districts Takeo province.
At the moment we have 300 students occupying a small building these circumstances are to far away from ideal even are far away from good and affecting to our work. Collectively with local teaching staff we made a decision TO BUILD A NEW CLASS.
Large, fully equipped bungalow in the local style will be built in our Palms Garden. We are glad. All aspects of our project increase chance for all children to gain better future.

A volunteer English school, in the beautiful setting of Treang District, Takeo Province, Cambodia about 80km south of Phnom Penh which is the capital. We are 30km from the stunning hilltop palace of Phnom Bayong. We are driving distance from the Treang District, and the surrounding countryside is encircled by the Bayong Kour mountains. The town itself has a thriving market, and plenty of restaurants and shops within walking distance of the school. The school itself is a relaxed, yet productive environment teaching around 300 students. We are always expanding though (3 months ago we were teaching around 150 students.) We also now provide free WiFi in the school, making keeping in touch with loved ones very easy. Accommodation is provided free, however we do ask for $5 per day towards food, accommodation, water, electricity, and many things. Simply because we are a small donation funded school, and finances are incredibly tight.
Please come and help us teach English to some of the most kind hearted, yet impoverished people in the world. You can truly make a positive difference here, and the teaching is fantastic fun! Hope to see you soon :)

There are two sets of lessons a day, afternoon and evening, we will ask you to teach at least one lesson from Monday to Friday (3-5 hours) also you can choose the time you prefer teaching. After the teaching lesson you can relax in the hammock opposite the school, play with the kids, go to the market or go to the cafe where you can have a delicious iced-coffee to cool down.
English and Khmer
The accommodation is humble but enough. Volunteers will have access to a shared western style toilet and shower. We provide beds and bedding for all the volunteers and a mosquito net. The beds are eastern style, so a table. You will be staying in communal living quarters with other volunteers, they are spacious and comfortable. Because we are a new organization, currently finding our feet, we do require a $25 weekly donation for food, accommodation, water, electricity, especially a very nice, filling lunch and dinner is provided for you.
The school is within 30 minutes drive of the famous Bayong temple. In the village we have local shops, temples, and a Khmer market. We are around 2 hours from the bustling city of Phnom Penh. As we are in the south we are not far from the beach, Kampot and Kep 3 hours far from us. Because you will have the weekends off you can easily get there. Other places to check out that we regularly go to in the school mini van are: Tonle Bati(Bati river) resort, Tamao mountain zoo, and Chiso mountain, all of which are beautiful, and are within an hour of the school, even on the 'trusty' old Cambodian road system!! Moreover, during the weekend or day off everybody can rents the school van to visit somewhere which is driven by Mr. Sophea, the director of the school, he will help you as a guide.
Limited internet access
We have pets
We are smokers
More than two
While volunteers are staying in the school they will know what the different between Cambodian culture and other culture from many different countries around the world.
3-5 hours a day 5 days a week, maximum 20 hours a week
In developing countries (Where most hosts are involved in charity work or community development) some of our hosts may ask for a small donation to help the host family or charity (often less then 5 dollars per day) Workaway will allow this listing when the donation goes directly to the family or charity and is just to cover the cost of the volunteers stay. (This will be clearly marked on the host listing).
We will strictly not allow listings posted by agents, “middle men” or projects who we feel are looking to profit from a volunteers stay.
