How can I help?

There are several ways you can help. First, we need volunteers to come and help our children. Our Khmer teachers appreciate assistance, especially with reading and pronunciation exercises with the children. If you can't visit Battambang and still want to help, consider making a donation (see our "donate" page). Even small donations are very much appreciated.


What should I do if I want to volunteer?

Contact Mr. Sun Saveth (see our contact page) or complete the Volunteer Application Form and email it to kngocamb@gmail.com, with a copy of your passport. Once your application has been approved, we will make arrangements to welcome you to KNGO and make your stay as comfortable as possible.

When can I volunteer?

Arrangements should be made with Mr. Sun Saveth.

How long can I volunteer for?

A minimum of two weeks volunteer is required but one month is preferred. Please contact us for a longer periods. Our children are so grateful for your help that the experience can be rewarding for you and for the children!

Do I have to pay money?

KNGO receives no government funding and relies on donations and other fundraising activities to provide a sustainable program in our local community. The volunteer donations help to sustain our free educational program for poor students in the rural community of Odambang 1. A donation of USD100 will support a student in our education program for approximately 1 year. Free supplementary education help many poor students to receive adequate tuition, especially students who dropped out of school also can attend with KNGO supplementary classes. A one-off donation of USD100 is requested from all volunteers to support KNGO's school and Admin costs so that KNGO school can keep going on forward.

I don't have any teaching experience. Can I still volunteer?

Yes! Don't worry about lack of teaching experience. Our children benefit greatly just by interacting with native English speakers and practicing their English and pronunciation skills. You'll be teaching with an English speaking member of the KNGO team.

Could you provide information from former volunteers?

Of course! Just check out testimonials page to hear what previous volunteers have said about their time at KNGO.

How do I get to KNGO?
