Volunteering Activities


What We Need

Our school's curriculum is based on the Singapore Ministry of Education's National Primary Curriculum. We teach primarily in English with our students also receiving additional instruction in Khmer as well. We currently have 107 students enrolled in our academic program, educating children from kindergarten through grade 5.

The children all reside within our village as well as the surrounding villages and communes here in Kep.

We have built a school that provides underprivileged children living in the rural countryside with the same resources, qualified teachers, and modern facilities as found in many private education institutions.

Our volunteers must be qualified an/or experienced teachers. Either university students, recent graduates or current teachers. Relevant experience is a must along with a minimum three-month commitment.

Selected volunteer teachers will manage their own classroom. Teachers will provide instruction for the following subjects: English language, mathematics, science, and social studies in English. Teachers are expected to create their own lesson plans following our curriculum mapping schedule.

We encourage creativity in our teachers and our students! Project based learning is also a big part of our program.
