Hello, My name's Eanghai. I'm Khmer. I'm 35 and I'm a teacher of English at my own language center at my home. I'm married and have two daughters, Siev Mey, 10 and Liev Yee, 8. My wife's name is Srey Oun. She's 30 and she's a house wife and also has a small shop to sell snack.
My center is small, it's got 3 small rooms and we currently have about 100 students and 2 teachers.
I have been running the school since 2007. Our School is located in Prey Chhor District, Kampong Cham Province, Cambodia about 32km from Kampong Cham Town to the west (in the countryside).
The vision of our school is to help general students, the poor students and the orphaned ones to improve their English in life skill. We're getting more poor children and teenagers wants to learn English. So we need English speaking volunteers to visit our Center to help us with teaching English to children and teenagers. Therefore we need more volunteers to them us. We will provide accommodation and local food. We kindly invite you to stay with us and with the other volunteers. If you are interested please contact us Thanks you!!!!
As a volunteer, your free time is on your own. There are some resorts nearby. We are located about 6 kilometers from Toek Chha resort. It's accessible by local tuk-tuk or motor-taxi for about 1$ one way. We suggest you do your research on Cambodia - it has a rich cultural heritage and the people are friendly and welcoming. We hope that you will come and join us in order to make a difference and make the lives of others better.
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
Therefore, the school is looking for more volunteers to join and be parts of us to impact on Cambodian students in our district.
