    Description

    Dear Workawayers who would like to do volunteering and helping underprivileged children of teaching English in our community out Side of Siem Reap Cambodia. we would like to inform you to contact us by our personal email it is easy to answer you quickly.
    thank you so much in advance that you are interested.

    if you are good heart , you are warmly welcome here, if you are not good heart , you are not welcome here, thank you .

    We are located in Tnol Trong Village, just outside of Siem Reap town. The school registered NGO, which is a non-profit organisation, was opened in February 2014
    Note: Please bring your passport photo ( one photo)

    The school offers free education to nearly two hundred impoverished children and young adults of the Bakong community, many of whom are not able to attend school otherwise because their families cannot afford the related costs. Classes at the school focus heavily on teaching English as a second language.

    The school director and the teachers currently work on a voluntary basis.

    Challenges

    Many of the village's children have lost one or both of their parents. A large number of them lost their fathers while they served in the army. The most prevalent illnesses in the community are malnutrition, HIV, hepatitis, typhoid, tuberculosis and dengue fever.

    Rice water and salt supplemented by the collection of frogs and red ants is the staple diet for many of the children in the Bakong community. Mothers are often unable to produce milk for their babies and are therefore forced to feed them only the water from boiled rice.

    Vision
    Cambodia is dependent on tourism which provides a great number of future employment opportunities. For a career within the tourist industry, or for many outside of it, English is essential.

    We believe that every child has the right to free, high-quality education. A good education enables children and young adults to develop the essential skills they need to make positive changes in their lives and to break free from poverty.

    Our school provides a secure and happy environment for the children it serves. Children follow a consistent curriculum with a clear learning path. Our talented Khmer teachers are supported as much as possible by English speaking volunteers to give students an opportunity to learn English as effectively as possible.

    Why does workaway.info allow listings of hosts who charge money?

    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 volunteer‘s 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.
