    Hello, my name is Kamnat.

    I am the Director of the school, a free English school designed to teach underprivileged children of all ages. I have been running the school since 2005. We currently have about 200 students and 8 local teachers. English speaking volunteers visit the School to teach students, support the local teachers and also to learn more about Cambodian life. Our home is located at the school itself, and we kindly invite you to stay with us and the other volunteers.

    WHY WORK FOR US?

    Government schools teach very little English despite it being fundamental to achieving further education and better career prospects. Teachers then charge a high price for extra English lessons, resulting in unequal access to education.

    As a young boy, I worked on my father's farm. I stopped going to school when I was just seven years old because my family could not afford the student fees. However, I was still determined to study again. That's why at the age of sixteen, I became a monk. This allowed me to study every day for the next ten years. Now I am proud to help children who suffer from inequality as I did, by giving them tho tools to build themselves a better future.

    You too can help the Project change lives whilst enjoying a wonderfully unique travel experience. The sense of fulfilment from this is both rewarding and heartwarming. The students, teachers, my family and I are very grateful for all of the help we receive from volunteers, which is why we will make your stay as comfortable, exciting and unforgettable as possible.

    Thank You!

    A TYPICAL SCHOOL DAY
    Since March 2018 we work with an educational system to provide the children an ongoing learning process. An important
    task at our school is to continue and follow the guidelines of such.

    08:30 am– 1:00 pm:
    • Breakfasts will be served at 08:30 though you are not expected to attend. If you wish to sleep in, I will leave snacks on the dining table for when you feel ready to get up.
    • After breakfast, the morning is spent at leisure or as preparation time for the lessons. You may wish to cycle into the city to enjoy some café culture or explore the local sights. Lunch is usually served back at the house before school starts.

    1:00 – 3:00 pm:
    • Students between the ages of 5-13 attend the school for two hours from 1 pm and it is usually the busiest (and noisiest) time of the day. Students are mostly separated by age. The classes have between 10 to 25 students.
    • The volunteer’s job consists in planning and teaching their lessons to the classes. The volunteers who don't feel confident enough yet can start with giving assitance to other volunteers or local teachers.
    • Usually, the volunteers are assisted by the Khmer teachers during this class time because of the young age of the kids. They translate and act as constant contacts for the children.

    3:00 – 4:00 pm:
    • This is free time before the older students arrive.

    3:00 – 7:00 pm:
    • Classes resume at 4 pm for the higher level and older students. There is a huge age range, between 12 and 21 years old, as well as level range.
    • Some classes are still working with a book and learning grammar. Other ones are taking conversation classes to practise speaking and the pronunciation. There are also reading and writing classes. These classes are mostly taught by volunteers. At this time we also offer an basic level class for older students which is assisted by a local volunteer.

    7 pm onward:
    • Another delicious home-cooked meal will be served when school has ended. After dinner, you may relax with the other volunteers and the family. Otherwise, you can enjoy the nightlife in Battambang.


    VOLUNTEERING OUTSIDE OF THE CLASSROOM

    The first priority is the teaching itself. Apart from that we are grateful
    to evolve the school with the knowledge you can bring in.
    In the past former Volunteers got involved, helped out and organized projects in areas such as marketing ( creating a homepage, facebook and Instagram), applying for funds, tourism ( promoting and creating tuk tuk tours to support the school) the educational system (a plan to follow, books, a library)
    decorating the school ground ( painting the walls).

    LOCATION

    The school/homestay is located in Wattamim Village, which is a 10-minute drive away from Battambang City; a riverside city with a strong remnant of French influence. There are many excellent cafes (with wifi), bars and attractions around the town centre. It is also nice to explore the main market in town.

    THE PROPERTY
    • 5 bedrooms and an extra bed in the connection room. Each room has one double bed and one single, sleeping up to three people, and are cooled by fans.
    • 1 shared bathroom which includes a toilet, sink and shower. There are two additional toilets outside the main building for the students.
    • A small volunteers kitchen with a coffee and tea area, and a cool box.
    Porch with a shared living and dining area. This is where you will have meals (unless you wish to eat out), prepare lessons and enjoy the company of the other volunteers and family. Sometimes, you might be joined by the family’s gentle and adorable dogs.
    • Outside kitchen. From here, you will smell many wonderful fragrances as ” Mama” cooks up her delicious Cambodian dishes.
    • Living room / teachers room. This room is based in the green house (main volunteers house) and contains all the school information, a simple relaxing corner and a small area for the family’s children.

    Accommodation & Food Fee = $5 per person
    (this goes towards the running costs of the school/accommodation, food and drink).

Welcome to my home! The green house is our guesthouse. We hope you feel at home here too.
My wife likes to cook authentic Cambodian food for the volunteers, but you can always eat out if you prefer.
This is one of the volunteers' bedrooms.
I like going out in the tuk tuk and so do the volunteers. I will take you where you need to go when I am not teaching.
When we have free time, I will take you around all of the local hot-spots and give you a guided tour. Feel free to use the bikes whenever you like.
Meet my family. We like to make sure you feel welcome and at home. If there's anything you need, just let us know.
The lessons are mostly free for the students. Only the ones who can afford to pay make a small donation once a month. This is thanks to all our volunteers!
The students are always happy to see new volunteers. They are a mixture of ages and they come from the surrounding villages.
Here's a photo of Nak and Mana, two of my three children. They study at the school too.
We have a small library of books. Reading books with the students is very beneficial for their learning.
Our volunteers can lead a class or help simply by engaging in conversation with the students.
I'm happy to show you our new classrooms. Now we can teach also while it rains. Some very generous former volunteers and other donators made it possible.
