All volunteers must be able to teach English, but we also require help in other ways, such as improving the school (by gardening painting, decorating, and building), and helping with fundraising campaigns.

The school is in Kracheh Province, about 5 hours drive north of Phnom Penh, in Orussey Village, about 10 minutes from Kratie town and the Mekong River. The school's owner and director, Mr. Yuth, has lived in this area for most of his life. Over time, he has watched children grow up with little or no English, and therefore, poor job prospects. He wanted to change this and offer the children a better future. In January 2016, Mr. Yuth opened our School, built a house for volunteers, and started English classes for underprivileged children in Orussey Village and the surrounding area.
In Cambodia, tourism is an important part of the economy. However, in the public schools of Kracheh, students aren't taught much English. Mr Yuth's goal is to enable them to learn English, and gain some basic IT skills, which will give them better job prospects and a brighter future.
The school receives no financial support from the Government and instead relies solely on donations for improvements and volunteers for teaching.
Aside from the English school, Mr. Yuth heads an NGO that works closely with vulnerable groups, farmers, women, and children by implementing sustainable projects to improve their lives. This is a long-established organization which has been in operation since 1993. Volunteers will be involved with work for this project as different needs arise.

A stay in Kratie is an opportunity to experience rural Cambodia, as few tourists ever will.
In our village, there are no tourists. The local people are very welcoming, ready with smiles and "hellos", and the local children are always keen to practice their English with volunteers.
Volunteers will be living in the community, seeing 'real Cambodia', and learning how the locals really live - visiting the local market, eating local food and interacting with local people.
In this way, volunteers have the chance to learn about the way of life in this rural area of Cambodia.
During volunteer's free time and on the weekends, Kratie is a lovely town to explore!
Volunteers can visit the town, take a trip to see the river dolphins, visit Kho Trong Island (and maybe even stay a night there in a home-stay or guest house), visit Sambok Mountain and the monkeys there, discover the forest, villages or ancient temples
More information can be found by googling 'Things to do in Kratie', and 'Mekong Discovery Trail'.
Volunteers could even go further afield to see more of Cambodia...
Visit Mondulkiri or Ratanakiri- both easy to do as a weekend trip.
We are looking for volunteers, minimum age 20 years, to teach English and basic computer skills. You must have a mature attitude, and be a 'self starter'.
We work with vulnerable young people, and so reserve the right to request a criminal record check from our volunteers.
TEACHING ENGLISH and BASIC IT. (typically need 4 volunteers at a time):
*️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️️Minimum 3 week commitment, but priority given to those able to commit for 1 month or more.
Classes are held at various times throughout the day, with our main classes at the School held from 5 - 8pm.
Each volunteer will be required to teach one or two classes and work in our office , library, garden or on school improvement each day.
Teaching at the home-based school - Levels 1 - 7 for children 5-18 years, and conversation and grammar classes for adults. This is held in the early evening, after the children have attended State school.
Class sizes vary from small groups to 20+ students. Adult classes are held after the children's classes
Volunteers also teach a other classes away from our base, and there are bicycles for the volunteers to use. All volunteers must be able to ride a bicycle, and fit enough to ride to our Country Class which is a 30 minute ride on dirt roads.
Teaching experience is greatly appreciated but if you are new to teaching, don't worry, a good standard of English, and enthusiasm and a commitment to help the kids are more important. There is a resident volunteer English teacher who can give you advice and guidance. However, we do need our volunteers to have a 'can do' attitude and to be willing to take charge of their class immediately. All volunteers must be adaptable, as numbers of students, and volunteers, fluctuate throughout the year.
Lessons can include role-playing, conversation and other ideas you have., dependent in the English level of the students. There is a curriculum for each level, and a monthly lesson plan for volunteers to follow. Teachers keep a record of what they've taught, and how the lesson was received by the students, every day in the appropriate level's log book so that we can monitor each student's progress.
If you have good basic computer and typing skills, our students would love to learn.
Most poor children at the school don't have access to a computer, and having IT skills is essential for our students if they want to have a good job in the future. Teaching the kids basic typing skills, how to research on the internet etc, will go a long way to improving their prospects.
Our new Computer Room/Library is now open. We hold a computer skills class every day, as well as reading and art programs. We have a good selection of books, games, and art supplies. Volunteer duties in the library include reading stories, teaching and playing board games, and generally engaging the children in simple conversation.
THE SCHOOL IS A STRICTLY ENFORCED NO SMOKING ENVIRONMENT. SMOKING, INCLUDING E-CIGARETTES AND VAPES, IS NOT PERMITTED IN THE SCHOOL OR SURROUNDING AREA.
COMMUNICATION & FUNDRAISING
Primarily based in the office (5 minutes from the school and volunteer house).
We are always working to increase awareness of our project and raise funds for improving the school. People with marketing/fundraising backgrounds, who can help with these initiatives are always welcome.
Volunteers who have specific skills to improve our NGO staff's abilities and help our organization to reach its goals are always needed. Experts in agriculture, water sanitation, environmental tourism, climate change, health and nutrition, female empowerment and gender equality, child welfare, grant applications and funding proposals, etc, would be great for this NGO.
We ask our volunteers to help for a minimum of 5 hours per day from Monday to Friday. There's plenty of free time, and weekends are free to explore the area and relax.
In return, we provide accommodation in our newly built volunteer house located right above the school.
The house has three shared bedrooms, with up to 3 beds in each- Khmer style, mattresses and mosquito nets.
Shared communal areas include a bathroom, kitchen, and a large sitting area. This is a traditional Khmer style house, with some Western elements added. Plumbing is basic, and there is no hot water. The kitchen has no fridge, as is normal in Cambodia, as electricity is very expensive here so the cost of running one is too high. Ice is available to keep things cool. Volunteers are expected to work together to ensure good upkeep of the volunteer house.
We will provide 3 meals a day to all volunteers at a cost of US$ 5.00 per day :
Western breakfast, Khmer style lunch and dinner.
SMOKING: Our school is a strictly nonsmoking environment. Smoking, including e-cigarettes/vaping, is not allowed in, or near, our school grounds.
There is no wifi at the house!
There are coffee shops and a hotel in the area where you can have free wifi. For onsite internet, local SIM cards are cheap and easy to use, and can be bought from Mr. Yuth's small shop located next door to the volunteer house (the shop also sells drinks and snacks, etc).
Volunteers also have free shared access to bicycles for getting to and from town. Please note that volunteers are responsible for all upkeep / repairs of bicycles. No locks are provided so you should bring your own, or they can bought cheaply at the market in Kratie.
Alternatively, volunteers can rent their own bicycle in the city for around $10-$15 per month, Motorbikes can be rented for a daily rate. Tuk-tuks are also available in the town, or can be booked through Mr Yuth.
Minivans to Kratie leave from Phnom Penh Central Market at 6 am and 11am to our house. PP vans cannot be booked in advance but we can give advice on how and where to get them.
From Siem Reap, vans can be booked. Please contact us if you would like to arrange this and further details will be provided.
Please send us a message through Workaway, telling us what kind of volunteer role you are interested in, the exact date of your arrival and the amount of time ( weeks, months) you can stay with us.
Please read our wonderful feedback to see what other volunteers thought of their time at the school, and for more info and pictures please contacts us for links.
Please remember this is a family home and a school environment - so please no drugs or excessive alcohol, and behave in a respectable manner.
Formal clothing is not required for teaching, but shoulders must be covered, and shorts or skirts knee length. No hats or caps in class please.
Rural Cambodian is conservative, this is not the place for revealing clothing- shoulders and knees covered helps everyone feel more comfortable!
Also, we don't provide towels so please bring your own.
HOW ELSE CAN YOU HELP?
Please help us reduce costs by bringing whiteboard markers, and other teaching supplies with you.
Donate. We always need picture books and flashcards for our young learners.
Used electronics, especially laptops and tablets are very much appreciated.
The school costs a lot to run, and Mr Yuth receives no outside funding. Please consider making a cash donation. However small, it will have a big impact on the lives of these children.
Spread the word - like and share our social media page - Cambodia , leave good feedback for us, and tell your friends and other volunteers about the work we do!

Warum lässt workaway.info Einträge von Gastgebern zu, die einen finanziellen Beitrag verlangen?
In Entwicklungsländern (wo die meisten Gastgeber gemeinnützige Arbeit oder Gemeinschaftsentwicklungsarbeit anbieten) verlangen einige unser Gastgeber einen kleinen Beitrag, um die Gastfamilie oder NGO zu unterstützen (meist handelt es sich um weniger als 5 USD pro Tag). Workaway lässt diese Art von Einträgen dann zu, wenn die Spende direkt an die Familie oder die NGO geht und nur dazu dient, die Kosten des Aufenthalts des Volunteers abzudecken. (Dies wird im Eintrag des Gastgebers deutlich angegeben).
Wir lassen keinerlei Inserate von Agenturen, „Vermittlern“ oder Projekten zu, bei denen wir das Gefühl haben, dass sie Profit aus dem Aufenthalt von Volunteeren schlagen wollen.
Dies sind zusätzliche optionale Bewertungen, wenn Mitglieder Feedback hinterlassen. Es wird die im Schnitt hinterlassene Bewertung für jede Option angezeigt.
