A volunteer English school, in the beautiful setting of Angkor Borei. We are 4km from the stunning hilltop palace of Phnom Da, which boasts the oldest Khmer artifacts to ever be found in Cambodia, giving the town of Angkor Borei its nickname as the 'Cradle of Khmer Civilization'. We are walking distance from the Angkor Borei river, and the surrounding countryside is encircled by the Borei mountains. The town has a Khmer market, and plenty of restaurants and shops again within a walking distance from the school. The school itself is a relaxed, yet productive environment teaching around 200 students, however we are always expanding (3 months ago we were teaching around 130 students.) We also now provide free WiFi in the school, so you can keep in touch with your family and friends.
Come and help us to teach English to some of the most kind hearted but impoverished people in the world, we would love to have someone to encourage the kids to speak and practice their English.
You can truly make a positive difference here, 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 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.

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 15 minutes drive of the famous Phnom Da 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.

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.

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.
