What we need

We are seeking volunteers to assist our Khmer teachers with our English Literacy Program regardless of whether you have teaching experience or not. Volunteers must be able to speak conversational English. The interaction volunteers have with our students makes a huge impact on their development. Special skills, eg: art, music, sport, IT etc are always an advantage. Volunteers in the areas of admin, community welfare and maintenance are also welcome. Groups and families will be considered

When we need volunteers

Volunteering is possible any time except April. In April we are closed due to national holiday. Please feel free to contact us for availability and your travel arrangements..

Length of stay

We would prefer volunteers to stay for a period of 1 month, however we will also consider a 2 week stay as a minimum. Longer stays will also be considered. Please contact us for availability and your preferred duration of stay.

Placement Donation

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.

In Australia and Germany, receipts can be provided for tax purposes if required. Please contact us for further details.
