    Global volunteers who spend their time volunteering at our school in rural Kep, Cambodia, will have a unique and rewarding experience that benefits both our students and the volunteers themselves. Here are some ways volunteers can benefit:

    1. Personal growth: Volunteers can gain valuable insights into the cultural and social context in which we operate. This, in turn, enables them to develop a level of tolerance, patience, and adaptability to different situations and circumstances.

    2. Professional Development: Volunteers can improve their leadership, communication, and teamwork skills. They will learn how to work effectively in diverse teams and become more proficient in managing challenging situations.

    3. Emotional intelligence: Working with semi-advantaged and disadvantaged children requires an immense level of emotional intelligence. Volunteers will learn how to communicate effectively with children to develop a deeper understanding of learners’ backgrounds and environments.

    4. Valuable experience: Volunteers who work with us will be exposed to different cultures, languages, and teaching methods. Such experience is an excellent addition to their resumes, making them more marketable in today’s ecosystem.

    5. Making positive impact: Volunteers’ contributions can improve the quality of education our children receive, enabling them to have a brighter future that allows them to become a better version of themselves.

    Overall, volunteering in our school is an enriching and rewarding experience that provides a unique opportunity to make a meaningful difference in children’s lives through assisting, mentoring and guiding while learning a myriad of valuable skills.

    Volunteers are needed at our rural primary school in Kep, Cambodia to assist the local teachers with various tasks such as lesson planning, classroom management, and student support. Additionally, volunteers are needed to help lead group activities that align with the school's project-based curriculum, including art, music, dance, social studies, science, computers, and more. Another important role for volunteers is to practice English conversation with the students to help develop their fluency. This is a great opportunity for individuals who are passionate about education and want to make a positive impact in the lives of children in a rural community.

  • Alojamiento

    Alojamiento

    We have a volunteer accommodation located here at school. A large clean room with fan, two twin beds, and on suite bathroom with hot water shower. We also have a school kitchen with modern gas stove top, refrigerator, and washing machine. Volunteers are welcome to cook meals and have full use of the kitchen.

    It should go without saying but smoking is strictly prohibited and is not allowed at any time within the school grounds. Regardless of school hours or location within the school.

    We will provide some Western breakfast items such as eggs, toast, oatmeal, fruit, tea and coffee. Volunteers will be responsible for assembling their breakfast meal. Lunch will be the responsibility of the volunteer with full use of the school kitchen. Dinner will mostly consist of rice and a Khmer vegetable and/or meat dish if the volunteer wants to eat Khmer food, our student's mother will cook a dish before leaving at 5:00. If not, the kitchen will be available for our volunteers to cook any meals that they would like. Usually, the kitchen is stocked with meat, veggies, rice, and cooking supplies. *Depending on our funding situation, we may have some Western group meals on occasion. We would advise bringing some snack items and we are happy to take trips to the market.

    The homestay works well for volunteers who enjoy an independent vibe. Volunteers have free-time in the mornings, evenings, and weekends.

    Your host is the American school founder/director, so you will not be staying with a Khmer family, but we will try and give you opportunities to learn about Cambodian culture.


    We are located in the village and dinner options are mainly in the center of town towards the beach or Crab Market. A PassApp tuk tuk is needed to travel outside the village in the evening. It is a rural village but a bit more developed than other rural villages. During wedding season, it can be a bit noisy (music) in the evenings but that is typical of everywhere in Cambodia.
