  • 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. 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

    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.


    Some of the village's children have lost one or both of their parents, others have both parents but it is in situation not good condition of poverty.

    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.

    We ask for two weeks minimum for your benefit and the children. We also ask for a $40/week fee that goes entirely to the NGO. This has been agreed with Workaway as we are a registered and verified NGO.

    We also have Transportation Service

    1. Angkor Small Tour
    2. Angkor Big Tour
    3. Floating Village Tour
    4 Meng Melea Temple Tour
    5. Bonteay Srey Temple Tour
    6. floating village
    we serve tourist destinations service . So all volunteers who will be easier to seeing touring things during volunteering as well.
    if you want to see where the places of SiemReap Cambodia, not just volunteering, you will have other options to Cambodian archaeology and reality of Cambodian cultures.
    Please book and talk with us. thank you so much
