Detailed description of volunteer work: Reading or conversing with Cambodian students aged from 5 years of age up to early 20's.

Detailed description of accommodation: Volunteers sleep at Kep Gardens in our volunteer house, situated in a valley with beautiful views of the surrounding hills. There are 2 rooms in the volunteer house, each sleeping 4 volunteers. Each room has an ensuite shower (cold water). The rooms are cleaned daily, laundry services are provided every 2 days, and there is generator power between 5.00 - 10.00 pm (including WiFi).

Detailed description of meals: We provide 3 meals a day (a mixture of Khmer and European food). Lunch and dinner are followed by a fruit plate. All the fresh water, tea or coffee you can drink is provided free of charge. We can provide vegetarian meals but they are basic due to ingredients available locally. A school canteen on the grounds is available for cold drinks.

Typical day: Here’s how a typical day looks like for our volunteers:
7.30 am breakfast
8.00 - 10.00 am reading with students
10.00 - 1.00 pm free time
1.00 pm lunch
2.00 - 8.00 pm reading and conversation with students
8.15 pm dinner

On the weekends volunteers are free to spend time away from Kep Gardens at their own expense.

Support and emergency assistance: Our hosts, Janine and Andrew, both live at Kep Gardens and are always available to arrange a 24 hour service to Sonja Kill Hospital, a European hospital roughly 25 kilometers away in case of emergency.
Please note however that volunteers are required to purchase their own medial insurance as we will not cover hospital costs.

Insurance: Not included; volunteers are responsible for purchasing travel and health insurance at their own cost and it is a pre-requisite to volunteering at our organization.

Additional information: Kep Gardens is situated in the Kampong Tralach Village at the entrance to the Kep National Park. We are happy to offer village tours, jungle treks and local pagoda visits for an additional fee. A nearby guest house allows our volunteers to use their swimming pool. The town of Kep is 10 kms away, Rabbit Island is off the coast of Kep and Kampot is 20 kms away - all of which are ideal weekend getaways! Volunteers may like to visit the pepper plantations and caves which are just a tuktuk ride away. Bicycles are available and Tuktuks are available for hire.
