The project

Whether you are a teacher, or just enjoy working with children, you should consider including this project in your adventure plans.

Our teaching placements are designed to give people who are interested in pursuing a career in a specific field their first taste of what it might be like. We also want to provide professionals who’ve already chosen their career path a unique experience that will help them to develop new skills, and present new opportunities.

You don’t need to have any previous teaching experience to get involved with this project.

The location

Cambodia is a country of incredible beauty and interesting history best known for its monumental temples and captivating nature. It was once known as the Khmer empire and later was a French protectorate for almost 100 years until 1953 when it gained its independence. The following years of political unrest, war and corruption have not broken the spirit of the Cambodian people who remain open, welcoming and positive.

Typical day

Cambodia is one of the poorest countries in South-east Asia - more than 75% of the population survive on less than $2 a day. Like many of the world’s poorest countries, Cambodia lacks the basic infrastructure to lift itself from the grip of poverty. Education is vital to the future generations of Cambodian children; children who are keen to learn, and who understand the importance of learning.

We’re offering you the opportunity to work with the children of Samraong, and help them to work towards a better future. While teaching English will be the main aim of your placement, the dire state of the local schools means that you may be called upon to help renovate, and rebuild school buildings, and orphanages. You might be asked to teach the children about environmental issues, or help them with their work in the vegetable garden.

All our visitors are expected to be environmentally aware and to use all resources with restraint; especially water, paper and electricity. You’ll be expected to clean up after yourself, and play your part in keeping the accommodation neat and organised.
