KNGO Cambodia has now reopened following closure during the COVID pandemic and is welcoming volunteers back to support the school and students.

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..

Do we require a minimum duration?

We would prefer volunteers to stay for a period of 2 - 4 weeks, however we will also consider a shorter stay. Longer stays will also be considered. Please contact us for availability and your preferred duration of stay.

Do i have to pay for my volunteering?

As KNGO receives no government funding and provides a free education for our students, charity food programs for poor families, housing for poor families, a donation of US$350 or US$100 is requested from volunteers. This helps to maintain the free education for our students on an ongoing basis.
