Our non-profit private school is based in Kratie province and is about 15 minutes by bicycle from The Mekong River and the town.
In the public schools of Kratie, students donít learn much English, or computer skills and there are only a few places which provide English lessons in the area.
In Cambodia the economy is mainly based on tourism and agriculture, so our goal is to help the students learn a new language that can make it easier for them to find a better job and have a better life in their future. We are looking for volunteers to teach English in Kratie town and near Kratie. Itís also possible to play educational games with them, and some cultural activities.
You do not need to have teaching experience, but you do need to be able to plan and teach your own class within our curriculum. There is a qualified teacher on site to advise you on this.
Our volunteers will help for a minimum of 3 hours per day from Monday to Friday.
IMPORTANT things you should know : Our School doesnít receive financial assistance or support from the Government or donors for implementing our projects.
We will provide accommodation in our newly purpose built volunteer house with shared bedrooms for volunteers, a bathroom, kitchen, and large, comfortable communal area. bikes and a scooter for accessing some of the schools and for use in free time. Volunteers must be fit,and able to ride a bicycle.
Volunteers coming for less than 1 month are are asked to pay a fee of US$5.00 per day, to cover the cost of food and accommodation. Drinking water is included.
Volunteers for 4 weeks or more have the above option, or can pay $10 per week, to help cover bills, and buy their own food.
What you can bring?
School materials like pencils, rulers, sharpeners,notebooks ...etc., are much appreciated since the students are poor. But it is not a requirement to come here. Also,we need basic English books,flashcards etc to aid in our teaching.
We are looking for volunteers who can help with:
Teaching English at a home-based school and in schools near Kratie Province. Teaching experience is valued,but if you have no experience you are still very welcome. You must have enthusiasm and a willingness to make a commitment to our organisation. The students follow a set curriculum,but volunteers plan their own classes and are encouraged to bring their own personality to class.
Teaching basic computer skills
Teaching IT(computer) skills to children and youth in Kratie province, that's close to our office. This is a new class to process, we need volunteers help to organize it. If the volunteers have COMPUTERS or tablets and wish to show to the class how to use them, it will be helpful. We still lack these IT tools for children to learn on as well. The volunteers can teach typing skills, researching on Internet, games etc.
Gardening: working in our vegetable garden, and keeping the school grounds in good condition.
Fundraising and communication:
Volunteers can also bring new ideas from everywhere in the world to help our staff design new projects or activities to raise money and recruit more donors who can support our school or poor communities in Kratie province.
Our volunteers must be able to stay a minimum of 2 WEEKS, and up to few months if so desired.
Please contact us in advance, and we will inform you how to get here.
We look forward to hearing from you.
