    July 5th, 2019 - Update:

    Head Volunteer Needed:
    The School is in need of volunteer(s) who can fulfil an organizational and managerial role while also taking on English teaching at the Schools. You will have the opportunity to guide this organization; creating an organized environment for students and volunteer teachers alike. If you have a background in management, strong organizational skills, and are naturally able to lead a group of people - this school and its students could use you. A commitment of a few months could really allow you to see your vision come to fruition here at the School.

    English Teachers are needed for both the School and the Public School (about a 10 minute walk away) ASAP. More details are below. You'll have the opportunity to teach children English, plan original lessons, and lessons from included textbooks. If you can commit for 1 Month or more you'll have a more positive impact on the students and the community.
    Our names are Savuth, Savon and Anthony.

    Savuth and Savon founded this community School in March 2014 with the aim of providing additional education, for free, to those who need it in the local community. Since then, with the help of volunteers from all over the world, we have helped to improve the lives and opportunities of children from local low-income families in and around Siem Reap. Anthony has been involved with setting up free schools, organic farming, Free English classes in government hospitals and other projects around Asia since 2012.

    We provide 20 classes per day on site, including English language, French, Spanish, Music/Art and Computer classes, but we are open to new classes depending on volunteers skills. The majority of classes are held in English and as such all volunteers will need to have conversational level. However, please don’t worry if your English is not absolutely perfect as any help is appreciated and having a teacher with basic conversation skills is much better than no teacher at all!

    As a volunteer we welcome you to stay in our home. We would love to teach you about our culture, food and language. There are dorms and private rooms available, we don’t have a/c at the moment, but we have free wifi, fans and huge smiles!

    This organization relies on volunteers not only for managing the organization and teaching at the school but also to help raise funds for our projects. We welcome all volunteers for free for teaching at the school, however, you are welcome to book your own accommodation in the city and travel by yourselves to and from the school or other projects. If you would like to experience life in the villages we also offer accommodation with a local family where everyone is welcome and we hope you will also feel part of the family.

    If you choose to stay with the family we do ask US$42.00 per week to go towards the costs of the house (equivalent to US$6.00 per night) to be paid every Monday for the following week. This covers a diverse range of costs including: 3 meals a day, electricity, Wi-Fi, drinking water, gas, laundry of bed sheets, cleaning supplies, repairs and yes, the list is endless.

    Please note that this is Savon's and Savuth's private home.

    The school is located in Po Krum Village Sangkat Siem Reap, street 63, on the way to Tonle Sap lake (5 km from old market), 6km away from Siem Reap center. The classrooms are outside our house and the students are aged 4 - 18 years old. As a volunteer we aim to give you an average of 3 lessons per day, but you could be doing up to 5 lessons depending on your availability and the amount of volunteers staying at a time.

    We also provide English classes at a local public school. Usually children are not exposed to English in public schools until grade 8 and the quality of teaching is low. These classes are fairly large and can be challenging
    with up to 40 children but there are always a minimum of two teachers per class. Students in the public school are used to strict teachers and sometimes they might be unused to Western teaching methods. However, helping to show these students a different way of learning is one of the most rewarding feelings you can experience.

    We believe that education is the best way out of poverty. Our school offers young students a better chance to succeed in life. Language education is essential for the future of Cambodian children especially here in Siem Reap with its huge tourism industry. Skills in English and other foreign languages provide a quick path to more lucrative careers for Cambodian children.

    Our students would really benefit from having access to long-term volunteers and those with any previous teaching experience or a desire to develop their skills in this area.

    Although we would love to host everyone, we are in need of volunteers who are aged 18+ and who can stay for at least 1 month. We receive many applications of volunteers willing to stay for 2 weeks or less, but if you really want to have a positive impact on the children you will find that 15 days is not enough for a proper teaching experience, as you need to allow some time to know the kids and understand their level and needs. Besides, the longer you stay the stronger the trust between kids and teacher will be, creating a special bond that will allow you to get the best out of your students! If you are looking for a short term volunteer experience, we strongly suggest you to look for another project.

    We can accommodate dietary requirements, just let us know in advance so we can order the right food. :)

    In March 2015, we opened “Pagoda” a new school 3 km away from here, in a village called Triev.

    In June 2016, we opened classes at the local primary school. We are currently teaching 5 classes here a day to over 300 students.

    In September 2016, with the help of fundraising money, we commenced two new projects. We renovated our English classroom at public school; washing and painting the walls, sanding all of the tables, decorating the walls and buying new resources. We have also built new walls in our classroom and installed new power boxes. Walls will be painted and new wall displays bought and displayed.

    In February 2017, we were continuing building a new school, 5 km away from the main School in Po Village. We look forward to open it after Khmer's New Year in April 2018!





    When you are not teaching or building there are plenty of things to explore around Siem Reap, such as: the Angkor Wat Temples, the floating village in Tonle Sap lake, the local Crocodile farm or simply enjoy the beautiful countryside of Siem Reap surrounded by friendly Khmer people. Bicycles are available.

    Here we believe in a very positive family orientated culture. We are looking for volunteers who flourish in an environment like this. Please understand that children and their education is our priority so we expect a responsible level of commitment from everyone that wants to join our team. This is an English school trying to empower low resources kids, if you are looking for a cool place to spend a few days taking pictures and sleeping around then this might not be the best project for you. If you come willing to give the best of you to leave a positive footprint for the local population, we are waiting to hear from you!

    We look forward to welcoming you to our family!
