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.
Another way you can help is by promoting our website and Facebook page. Links to our website on travel blogs and travel websites help to raise awareness about our organization. More links also help us to appear in Google and other search engine results. If you have a blog, consider linking to and mentioning our website.
Contact Mr. Sun Saveth (see our contact page). Just complete the Volunteer Application Form and email it to email@example.com, together with a signed Code of Conduct & Child Protection Policy and police criminal record certificate. Once your application has been approved, we will make arrangements to welcome you to KNGO and make your stay as comfortable as possible.
Arrangements should be made with Mr. Sun Saveth.
A minimum of one month is required and we particularly welcome volunteers who wish to stay for longer periods. Our children are so grateful for your help that the experience can be both rewarding and addictive!
No. There are no fees but donations are always welcome (no pressure of course).
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.
Of course! Just check out testimonials page to hear what previous volunteers have said about their time at KNGO.
The village is about a 15 minute scooter/tuk tuk ride from Battambang city. It would be best to let us know your arrival date and Mr. Sun Saveth can arrange to have you safely brought to KNGO office. Just let him know when you are planning on arriving.
If you are already in Battambang, give him a call at: 077 95 15 38 or 086 23 29 46 to make an appointment.
Besides English teachers, we need many different types of people with different areas of expertise to help our organization. If you have experience in art, environmental issues, computers, agriculture, sewing, nutrition or are a health care professional, we would love for you to help our organization.

The experience can also help your career as we can provide letters of recommendation to our volunteers, in addition, the experience looks great on any resume.
