The benefits of volunteering extend to you - the volunteer, and to the wider Cambodian community where you serve. Personal benefits include development of life skills, personal growth, friendship, increased self confidence, social awareness, and building independence. An international volunteer experience will also enhance career prospects.
When you volunteer with GVN, you can be assured you are helping a local grassroots organisation. Volunteer efforts directly benefit local groups, local communities, and local people. We work with our partner organizations to support them in achieving their goals and ensuring that their projects are sustainable and effective.
What to Expect?
Volunteers will be working as language teachers in a school project which provides affordable conversational English language courses for students aged 14 to 65.
The aim of this project is to raise money for a local NGO working to improve livelihoods in rural communities in Cambodia. Students pay a small fee to attend the classes.
In the past, the money raised by the language centre has been used to improve water and sanitation, for small livestock and agriculture production, and for community environmental awareness in rural Cambodia.
Volunteers teach conversational English classes which have around 10 students in each class. All students and teachers have books, from which to learn and teach. There is scope for volunteers to include their own exercises/games into each class. Most volunteers work up to 5 hours per day. Lesson plans and materials will be provided by the school to make preparation and teaching easier.
