    Susadei Workawayers!

    Are you looking for an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of children in Cambodia?

    My name is Savuth and together with my wife, Savon, and daughter, Channa we run an education center in the village of Po, located a 5-minute walk from the local market, and just 15 minutes by car from the center of Siem Reap and 30 minutes from the famous Angkor Wat.

    We opened our on-site center in 2014 to provide free additional education to the children in the local community, including free English classes for 100 students. In the following years, we started providing teachers for the primary and secondary public school which hosts over 2,000 students combined, ranging from 6 to 16 years old.

    Volunteers are currently able to teach at our on-site center, which is open both before and after school to provide additional help to students. Additionally, volunteers teach at the primary and secondary school, which is located about a 10-minute walk away. Typically, you will teach for an average of 3 hours per day, although depending on your availability and the number of volunteers staying at that time, you may be asked to teach for up to 5 hours.

    The majority of our classes are conducted in English, so all volunteers must have at least a conversational level of English ability. However, please do not worry if your English is not perfect, as any assistance is greatly appreciated.

    As a volunteer, we would be delighted to have you stay with us in our home, learn about the local culture, and make a positive impact on Cambodian development. We offer dorms for our volunteers which includes free WiFi, fans and three home-cooked meals a day. We ask for a donation of $8 per day for the dorm room.

    You'll only be 15 minutes away from the local market, night market at Pub Street, floating village, lotus farm, and rice fields. And if you're interested in visiting Angkor Wat, it's just a 30-minute drive away. To get around there are also lots of cheap TukTuks available.

    We require a minimum commitment of two weeks from our volunteers, but staying longer will enable you to build a stronger bond of trust with your students and leave a lasting impact on their lives.

    With the help of volunteers from around the world, we've been able to improve the lives and opportunities of children from low-income families in the local community. We welcome volunteers to join us in making a positive impact on the lives of our children and community.

    We look forward to welcoming you to our family!

    Volunteers able to join our team will benefit from the rewarding experience of supporting children and the local people in a developing community. They will be treated as part of the family, and will experience real life in Cambodia, not just as a tourist but as a local. Being part of such a worthwhile cause gives our volunteers memories never to be forgotten.
