  • Description

    Description

    We are seeking volunteers for our two Education Centres; Siem Reap town and a rural setting. Our rural setting is located 70kms out of Siem Reap Province, Cambodia in a traditional village which can be accessed via a good road either by car or bus (approximately 1 hour from the city).

    At our rural setting we have established a facility enabling over 80 very poor children to gain an education including vocational training. Additionally, we run a community preschool program for small children under 6 years (currently 20 children attend). As well as this educational provision, we also support adult community development work which is focused on animal raising and developing home gardens.

    We believe that good food and healthcare are essential if children are to reach their potential through education. As well as education, we also provide a nutritious diet, healthcare, encouragement and mentoring, supplementary teaching and extra-curricular activities such as sport and art. One important subject is English which is very poorly taught at the local secondary school, and not at all at primary school. We now have a Cambodian English teacher from Siem Reap who comes to our Centre four times a week.

    Our Siam Reap city based project supports young people from rural areas to access high quality city centre education and university by housing them in a central location. Our organization covers the costs for these students to attend private and public school which would otherwise not be available to them due to the low economic situation of their families. Our aim is for rural children and young people to have the same opportunities and compete against their city peers. Learning English to a high level is an important aspect of this.
