Volunteer in Cambodia with Love Volunteers Teaching English Program - from just $33 per day!

Company : Love Volunteers
Activity: Teach English
Country: Cambodia
Location : Cambodia, Siem Reap
Duration: 2 weeks to 1 Year+
Approx Costs: 500 to 2000 $ Dollars (US)

This important program was created with the goal of helping to improve the English-speaking abilities of some of the poorest residents of Siem Reap. Education is key to breaking this seemingly endless poverty cycle, yet sadly, having access to native English speaking teachers is more often than not a luxury only available to children of wealthy parents. 

Government schools in Cambodia are notoriously corrupt, teachers are paid a meagre salary and children have little chance of gaining skills such as English.  In conjunction with the local partner agency, and with the help of international volunteers, Love Volunteers aim to change that by giving free access to English speaking teachers and classroom assistants at NGO operated schools in Siem Reap. On this project, volunteers have the opportunity to work across two locations, reaching over 1,000 children aged between 6 and 12 years old. Ultimately it is hoped that through this project these children achieve the first step toward a life free of poverty.  By sharing their knowledge and skills in the English language volunteers will have a direct, positive and long-lasting impact on the lives of some of Cambodia’s poorest children

Goals of this Project:

·       Provide free English language classes to children in NGO operated primary schools in Siem Reap

·       Improve the future prospects of some of Cambodia’s most impoverished children, and help them to break the poverty cycle

·       Expose non-English speakers to native English speakers in order to improve pronunciation and conversational skills

·       Enable inter-cultural exchange which benefits both residents and international volunteers alike.
