I was wondering if anyone has been with IVHQ to Cambodia and more specifically for their Teaching English program. I’ve never traveled abroad with any volunteering company before so obviously have some inhibitions. I wanted to know if it’s safe and if it’s actually going to be a meaningful experience.
Any comments would be highly appreciated!
Not yet, But I am looking forward to it.

Thank you Anonymous! It’s exactly the type of project I’m looking for, centered on studying and practising permaculture, voluteering in exchange of accomodation, and all these side benefits allowed by such a great experience.
I am a single brazilian, 41, happy to break a 17 years administrative career towards new discoveries and ways of life. Starting my gap year in May/June 2018, short planning still, heading towards Europe/Asia, but here we go. Thanks!
