  • Description


    We are an English school located in Phnom Sampov village in Battambang province (13km from the city), Cambodia. Our mission is to teach English to poor kids in the rural areas for free. But at the same time, rich kids also have no chance to study English because there are no English schools in the area. Then, we decided to take both the poor and the rich, but we have to charge some money from those who are cable of paying as we are not sponsored by anybody. By doing this, we can help more and more kids to study English. As we are all Cambodians, our English pronunciation is not always appropriate, and we don’t want to pass this to the next generation. Therefore, we are looking for foreign volunteers with acceptable pronunciation who can come and help our students with it.
