  • Description


    I am Sovannarith, a volunteer founder and director of a children's charity organisation located in the countryside near Siem Reap. I speak English and want to educate our children with a key focus on language skills like English, Chinese and computer skills to give them a better chance in the future. I believe it is very important to help our children to be successful, I also run a food program once a month to provide food and condiments for the poor and unable. I hope with extra funding this organization will be able to grow and expand reaching out to more children, providing vocational training, community development and extra lessons.
    I have been running this NGO since 2011 but am in need of volunteers to help this project grow, anyone who would like to come and support me or teach other languages to the children are very welcome we have classrooms where most of our lessons take place, this is where you can teach the children.
    We teach young children in the morning from 8am until 11am and 2pm until 5pm we teach students aging from 5 to 16 years old.

    Besides teaching you will be working on extra helps:
    1. Create teaching materials
    ( Curriculum, Lesson Plans)
    2. NGO Fundraiser
    3. NGO WordPress developer
    4. NGO Social Media Updater
    5. NGO Video Maker
    6. NGO Photographer
    7. NGO Sustainability Planner

    Transportation Service is available for:

    1. Angkor Small Tour
    2. Angkor Big Tour
    3. Floating Village Tour
    4 Meng Melea Temple Tour
    5. Bonteay Srey Temple Tour
    And other tourist destinations. So all vollunteers will be easier to seeing touring things during vollunteering as well.

    I accept volunteers who wish to do short stay or long stay though long stay is preferred. I would be happy to give you a tour of our school at any time.

    In addition to this, a certificate is provided as proof of involvement with the school and I can be used as a reference for any teaching jobs you may want to apply for in the future. The school is the ideal place as a starting point for anyone holding a TEFL certificate as it offers the opportunity to practice teaching skills and classroom management, although we do welcome anyone to join - whether you have any prior experience/teaching certificate or not.

    Accommodation is provided in Homestay as a Cambodian family along with three meals a day, I do ask for a contribution of $5 dollars a day towards food costs and extra donations are welcome warmly. The charity running is based on volunteers and individual donations. I welcome all volunteers and look forward to meeting you.

    We welcome smokers and non-smokers alike but smoking is not allowed inside the house.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    As a volunteer, travelers will learn about Cambodia culture and customs, as well as have the opportunity to help children learn. Often, there are many students but not enough teachers. Volunteers can increase their overall teaching skills and have the perspective from being involved in teaching in an area where there is poverty. In addition, volunteers can learn how to fix and build homes, and know that families in need are being helped.

  • Help


    We are in need of up to 12 volunteers at the time for ideally at least one week (but will accept volunteers that can only come visit for the day) and as long as desired. We welcome volunteers that can speak any other language aside from English, web designer in Word press and Carpenter making chair, table, and bench,(Chinese, Korean, Italian, etc.) as there are tourists that come here to visit and speak those languages.

    What else ...

    Volunteers can visit the many sights around Siem Reap including the Angkor temples, local markets, as well other villages near town. Tourism is high so it is easy to meet many people from other countries as well to make friends while here. It is very inexpensive to take local tuk tuks around all of Siem Reap or buses to other cities like Phnom Penh.
