  • Description


    We are an educational organization focused on providing holistic education programs to urban and rural communities throughout Cambodia, East Timor, Laos, and Japan. Our core program is to provide education in English, IT and Life Skills to the underprivileged youths. We also focus on soft skills (belief in self, leadership, being a good citizen in the society, giving back to the community) and give lots of opportunities to develop practical skills.

    Since we began in 2000, we have educated over 200,000 students. We currently reach 15,000 students on a daily basis in our 50 schools across 4 countries.

    We are currently looking for volunteers who could be committed for 3 months or more. The positions that are open are:
    1. "Teach Portuguese" as a second language;
    2. "Teach Korean" as a second language:
    3. "Teach Vocational Skills" [car/motorbike mechanics, electronics].

    Our school is a community full of enthusiastic volunteers and students.
    Come and join our team and make an impact on the lives of others!!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    East-Timor is a country with lots of traditional customs. You will learn many things from the Timorese culture as you develop more relationships with the students. Sometimes they wish to invite you to their house in the districts, which is a great experience for travelers. You can also choose to visit the districts on your own, and since we have lots of schools throughout the whole country, accommodation wouldn't be of any issue.

    What else ...

    East-Timor is a country located on an island. There is plenty of nature, mountains, and beaches to visit during your free time. Most of the locals travel by a mini-van which is like a public bus in many countries. We also organize many volunteer outings during the volunteers' holidays like going to the beach with our students or volunteers.
