Travel to one of the friendliest countries in the world with fascinating culture and teach young Cambodians to give them a chance to succeed in future.

Knowledge of English language is considered a basic requirement in today's competitive world. In Cambodia, it's also become imperative to have good English to get good jobs. Rural schools in Cambodia, however, cannot provide English language classes to students because they are low on resources. Under such circumstances, students struggle hard to keep up with the rest of the world. You can volunteer to teach these children basic English in order to improve their chances for a brighter future.

Enroll in the project and be part of the school in their effort to improve young children. You'll find the experience fun and fulfilling, and the children very enthusiastic to learn from an international volunteer.

Project Location

Phnom Penh: Phnom Penh is the capital city of Cambodia that is somewhat chaotic yet charismatic at the same time. Amid poverty and depravity, this city comes forward as a historical place worth a visit. Volunteers can take a pleasant stroll along the park-like riverfront, where plenty of caf├ęs and restaurants are located. Standard tourist sites are few, which makes the city an ideal place to relax, watch the street life and absorb the city.

Battambang: Battambang is the second largest town of Cambodia and a popular tourist destination. This place is famous for its ancient temples, Buddhist shrines and the bamboo railway. The city is located next to the river and is home home to some of the best-preserved French-period architecture in the country and to warm and friendly inhabitants. The city itself is developing fast but timeless hilltop temples and scenic villages can be seen on leisurely day-trips.

Pursat: Pursat is a beautiful city well known among travelers for its marble carvers and oranges. The waterfall and the floating village of Kompong Luong will never fail to captivate you. Other attractions include Tonle Sap Lake or Cardamon Mountains.

Siem Reap: Siem Reap has developed itself as the center of modern Cambodia. The city contains beautiful temples, old French shop/houses and tree-lined boulevards. Siem Reap is a laid-back and a pleasant place. It is a nice compromise between observing Cambodian life and enjoying the amenities of modern services and entertainment.
