Visit Siem Reap, a city in northern Cambodia, and teach English to Buddhist monks and children from the local community. Spend afternoons working with the local pagoda to improve the English of local Buddhist monks and the rest of the day at our other educational centres, teaching children basic English to improve their opportunity of higher education and skilled employment in later life. Whilst working with us, you will be contributing to the UN Sustainable Development Goal #4 – Quality Education.
Experience first hand Cambodia’s rich culture and famed temples and monuments, while assisting us in working towards the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Join us to teach English to Buddhist monks and various members of the Siem Reap community and gain valuable life skills and hands-on teaching experience to improve your employability while getting the opportunity to learn Khmer, the local language. Typically volunteers will have the opportunity to teach an hour-long class each afternoon to Buddhist monks, whilst the rest of your time will be spent teaching children from the local community and lesson preparations.
In the city of Siem Reap we have joined efforts with local partner organisations to assess the needs within the community before setting up any of our projects. As such the core of our programmes is aimed at sustainably enhancing the educational facilities and English literacy levels of the community. Through working with such a diverse range of students, participants will gain an insight into the education system in Cambodia, and GVI’s work to increase access to quality education.
