We are constantly seeking volunteers to assist our Khmer teachers with our English literacy program. Regardless of whether you have teaching experience or not, the interaction volunteers have with our children makes a huge impact on their development.
If you decide to volunteer, not only will it positively affect the development of our children, but you will gain a rewarding and unforgettable life experience.
There is no cost to volunteer at KNGO. We are a local, grass roots, non-government organization that operates on private donations. We do not ask for any placement fees to volunteer with KNGO, however if you would like to make a donation it would be gratefully accepted.
You are welcome to volunteer for any time period but we would love it if you could spend one month or more here. A longer time period allows you to have a better experience and to learn more about the culture and has been shown to be more beneficial to the students.
If you are interested in volunteering please fill in the Volunteer Application Form and email it to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you do not have the time to volunteer for a longer period, please feel free to visit KNGO for a day to see first-hand the classrooms and environment we teach in. To make an appointment, please email or call Mr. Sun Saveth directly. See Contact us page for details.
